Course Duration: September 2014 to January 2015

I am taking an English language course at Cornell English School in Auckland. After finishing this course I am going to continue my studies with The Cornell Education Group and join their Computing Network level 7 course, of which I am excited about. I have found that this education programme is made easy to understand, the classes are comfortable learning places, especially the tutors they very considerate and ensure every students needs are taken care of with undivided attention. At Cornell, the classes are dynamic because you have to speak English because all students came from different t countries. I think this is the best way to improve your skills. I am finding this English programme is really helping me improve my communication skills and future in finding a job. I have recently been introduced to iCareer who are Cornell’s support services who were very helpful; they assist all students with the knowledge needed to require a job. Anytime of the week, even during weekends, any issues that may arise support is available at Cornell, as my marketing manager Bien; he was there to help me. From opening a bank account, to transferring from home stay to another accommodation, he helped me. He makes himself available if I need help. New Zealand is a very beautiful country; the people are from many different countries and are all kind and friendly. Our field trips to the parks with their natural habits are amazing. Every weekend I am exploring new places and find this to be really exciting and an interesting adventure, including my education here in Auckland! Oleg Zavivaev

My name is Rais from Russia and presently studying English in the Cornell English School, Auckland, which is part of The Cornell Education Group (TCEG). Having arrived over a month ago coming to NZ because of the climate, safety factor and the understanding that the country and known to be a very friendly place to visit. I was not disappointed and presently really enjoying my time here. My rst impressions were very positive, on-still pozitivnej!))) At the airport met the guys from "kiwi education very cool guys! All showed o street parking, all staged in a hostel for the rst time, even got a switching power supplies! A small thing, but very nice! Now I live in the City. First tried surng, thanks to Sergey Birukova! He led me on everything from the very beginning, even surng taught!))) The country is very cool! I did not think that all would be well, the result exceeded all expectations! To all who have decided to go to New Zealand, "Kiwi Education" Teachers are native speakers, very funny "Kiwi" are all trained on the positive! A quite dierent approach to learning, not as in Russia, but very poznovatel no! Every Friday "activity"-trips to interesting places and fun, very interesting! Be sure to go to them, I don't miss classes, but on the contrary-I am waiting for the new school day))) this is fun and cool. I am very interested in doing a “Work Experience Programme” that (TCEG) has to oer their students in an area with media spec. Later on in the year after my course here at the English school I will be continuing my developments with TCEG and joining the IT Level 5 programme. The people here are amazing! I really like it where you can live and learn, an amazing country that has friendly people, pretty islands, and to visit and stay here you would not regret! That is just what I am going to do!
