Rotorua is one of New Zealand’s major tourism destinations, attracting visitors and students from all around the world.
In this friendly city, you’ll catch a bus from your homestay to your language school each day. Classes from 8.30 until 3 pm give you the opportunity to improve your English whether you’re a short or long-term student. At lunchtime you can stay at school or visit one of the many international restaurants or cafes nearby.
At Rotorua English Language Academy, after class activities are offered 4 days a week, giving you many opportunities to practise English, make friends and see the region. You could also walk down to the lakefront or Government Gardens with friends. Stopping off for a coffee on the way is a great way to practise your English in everyday situations.
You can use your weekends to work through a list of the many activities that Rotorua offers international visitors.
If you like adventure and the outdoors, there are 90km of world class mountain biking trails, the Zorb, white water rafting and the luge. If your style is more relaxed, then the hot thermal springs, Skyline Gondola, and walking in Whakarewarewa Forest might be for you.
Everyone visiting Rotorua should visit Te Puia to see the world famous mud pools, Pohutu Geyser and to experience our unique Maori Culture.
