One of New Zealand’s leading language schools, situated in the heart of Auckland City, with a focus on English language preparation for academic study.

The school offers year-round Intensive Academic English courses where students receive 24 hours tuition per week in the classroom.

Successful graduates of ACG English School have guaranteed entry to the University of Auckland Certificate in Foundation Studies, the Victoria University of Wellington Foundation Studies Programme and all our high schools.   Students who will promote to the AUT University Certificate in Foundation Studies and tertiary programmes in Cookery, Hospitality, Digital Design, Business, Travel and Tourism will need to meet NZQA’s acceptable level of English evidence prior to receiving an unconditional offer to their next programme.  For example: - students from countries with greater than 80 percent visa approval will be able to present an NZQA approved English Test while students from countries with a lower visa approval rate can only submit international acceptable evidence such as IELTS, TOEFL, Pearson etc.

In addition to lessons, there are tutorials and coaching sessions are available to support learning, while the tutor system ensures that each student is given close individual attention.

Mobile technology plays an important role in expanding learning outside the classroom. Students in all classes are given an iPad for use at school and at home. This provides excellent preparation for students who continue on to Foundation for either the University of Auckland, Victoria University of Wellington or AUT University where iPads are issued to all students. 

ACG English School provides specialised support in developing writing skills - essential for success at university.
