ABC College of English, established in 1994, is a boutique, private English language school that has gained a reputation for its first class English language tuition and excellent student services. We pride ourselves on the supportive, family atmosphere with welcoming and friendly, caring staff. Our students come from many different countries and so there is a great mix of nationalities at any one time.

Located in Queenstown, New Zealand's premier four-season lake and alpine resort, ABC College of English offers a beautiful and exciting environment to study English. 

ABC College of English has a dedicated team of highly qualified and experienced staff. Communicative teaching methods are used to encourage natural interaction on a strong foundation of vocabulary and grammar. Our professional teachers are responsive to individual goals and learning styles and our small class size (6-7 students on average - maximum 10) allows enhanced attention to learners’ needs and progress.

The school runs organized weekly activities allowing teacher-assisted interaction in the community. As part of the General English courses we are able to incorporate field trips creating opportunities to interact in real time in an English speaking environment. Our staff are ready to assist in all bookings for the vast array of tourist and adventure activities on offer in Queenstown.
