ESOL Classes


Neighbourhood Trust is pleased to offer free English (ESOL) lessons to newcomers and migrants with English as a second language, or with low levels of English.

The one-hour long, daytime classes, are taught by a qualified ESOL teacher and are run once a week on Tuesday or Thursday. Lessons cover conversation; grammar; punctuation; reading; and understanding common Kiwi phrases and the context of them in everyday language.

The classes are designed to be fun and engaging, and to suit the individual needs of the student.

We use the SuccessMaker system, which helps to equip students with the English skills needed to put them on the road to success and new opportunities. It is based on the New Zealand curriculum and small class sizes mean you can learn at your own pace.
