Kaplan's English school in Auckland, the City of sails



Sometimes when you visit a new City, it can feel like you’ve been there before; same towering buildings, same crowds, same things to do; but not if you are at our English school in Auckland, New Zealand.

The city has become known as the city of sails as its harbours are home to so many yachts, bringing fresh new influences in with the tides as they arrive. Auckland is also a hotspot for international language education including Kaplan English students and home to a multicultural mix of Maori, Asian and European culture to add to its diverse feel.

In fact, whoever you are, you’re bound to find something for you in Auckland. Nature lovers are spoilt for choice with soaring volcanic peaks like Mt. Eden and beautiful beaches bordered by smooth seas filled with colourful underwater life. You can even take the Rainforest Express train deep into the heart of the jungle for an up close encounter with one of nature’s most incredible wonders.

If you prefer fast paced city life, you won’t be disappointed either, as Auckland has a huge range of modern attractions. Why not shop the Otara markets for local gifts to take back home, try delicious dishes in Auckland’s variety of great restaurants or even sip drinks at a frozen Ice bar.

Next, work up the courage to try Auckland’s most daring activities, from bunjy jumping off Harbour Bridge to white water rafting and the Rainbow’s end theme park. Not quite brave enough for all that? Then sit back with your fellow Kaplan students and leave the sport to the professionals, at Eden Park stadium.

As well as the fun and games, Auckland also has a strong professional reputation, as New Zealand’s main economic power. Add this to the fact the city is home to several reputable universities and you’ll see why Auckland is the perfect location for an English language learning adventure with Kaplan International Colleges.
