    Hello, my name is Adrian, I'm from Switzerland and I'm studying at RELA for 3.5 months. New Zealand is the perfect place for improving your own English skills. You can meet people from all over the world, the cities are beautiful and the landscape isjust amazing. I decided to go to RELA because of its good reputation and the way of teaching. The classes aren't bigger than 12 people, which enables the teacher to look after every single student. The lessons are varied and because of the mixture of thedifferent cultures and home-countries of the classmates each schoolday is very interesting and you learn a lot more than just a language....

They are very helpful and provide lots of information about useful websites, places to go out and events in Auckland. I especially enjoy the social activities. That's great opportunity to meet new friends, spend time together and know each other better. Now I have many friends from all over the world. Thanks Ntec for such life experience.

    Estudei por 3 meses na NZIOS, E minha experiencia nao poderia ter sido melhor, especialmente pelo fato de ser a minha primeira vez fora do Brasil e sem falar muito ingles, a escola me proporcionou tudo o que eu precisava. Disponibiliza de profissionais capacitados pra te auxiliarem, tendo agentes de detrminadas nacionalidades para "cuidarem" dos alunos da mesma nacionalidade. Esse foi um ponto efetivamente benefico eu diria. Eles te ajudam com estadia, visto, procura de trabalho se for o seu caso, enfim basicamente com tudo o que voce precisa saber....
