The English Language Centre is part of our St Helens campus located off St Lukes Road in beautiful, peaceful park grounds in Mt Albert, away from Auckland city centre, and near Western Springs, Auckland Zoo, MOTAT, and St Lukes Mall.

Our passionate, dynamic and experienced teachers are excellent demonstrators and facilitators. They encourage student participation and adapt their lessons to include various learning styles. We have been using the communicative teaching approach for over 20 years.

We maintain a busy and entertaining after-class activities schedule 5 days a week and students are encouraged to talk in English as much as possible. 3 days a week we offer extra skills classes in listening and pronunciation.

Students are encouraged to use our combined academic and English language library and our cafeteria to study and to make friends. Outside the English Language Centre we have a large car park, tennis courts and park-like grounds. Our Sports Hall and Gymnasium cater for basketball, badminton, table tennis and weight training. On-site security and student service officers are available to help with any situation. Our regular shuttle bus service transports students to and from Auckland City Monday to Friday.

For students seeking accommodation support we are able to offer our on-campus dormitory (houses up to 120 students) or our homestay arrangement service.
