Taupo Language is located in Taupo’s CBD, which is on the Northern shore of NZ’s largest lake, beautiful Lake Taupo. The school is within walking distance of the lake, restaurants and retail. Students find it easy to adapt to an English speaking environment in a smaller city as the locals are friendly and very hospitable. Because only English is spoken on the streets of Taupo, students have to practise their English 24/7, which makes the time spent studying shorter and therefore less expensive.

Because we are a medium sized school, there is a family like atmosphere where everyone knows everyone. Students come from more than 25 different countries annually, so students can expect to make friends from all over the world. Students benefit greatly from having smaller classes as there is a maximum of 10 students per class, so each person gets more individual attention. Our teachers have an average of 12.5 years' ESL teaching experience.

Taupo Language home stay families are all English first language speakers, which means our students get cultural and pronunciation assistance while at home. Home stay includes all meals, your own room, study area and daily school commuting. We also offer rental apartments or houses, or a shared house for 18+ year olds.

The Taupo region is famous for the 40+ adventure activities close by, such as bungy, tandem sky dive, skiing, horse riding, rafting, hiking the Tongariro crossing, mt biking, golf, trout fishing, jet boating, wake boarding, sailing which they students can enjoy. Long-term students are encouraged to join a local sports teams while in Taupo, e.g. football, rugby, hockey, tennis, basketball, mountain biking, motor-cross, golf, ski racing, sailing etc. A lot of our student’s just love living and studying close to nature, without large city noise and pollution.

Taupo is a less expensive study and living destination, because our home stay includes all the meals and there are no daily transport costs. We also provide assistance with work placement, internship, secondary or tertiary study.
Our school has a large garden, free wireless internet, a computer lab, basketball and table tennis area, there is free parking, tea and coffee.

Established in 1991, Taupo Language has 20+ years' experience in helping students achieve their personal English language goals. Check our website & facebook pages. We look forward to helping you.
