New Zealand Study Tour

 

In order to broaden students’ world-wide perspective and develop their linguistic and interpersonal skills, our school organized a 12-day study tour to New Zealand in June. 

Both English lessons and excursion visits were scheduled in the trip. Our students had an opportunity to attend different classes at a local school in New Zealand and immerse themselves in the English learning environment. Also, our students had several sightseeing trips to the famous tourist spots in Auckland. Students had learnt a lot about the New Zealand culture which they could never get from books.

Apart from lessons in the local school and the eye-opening visits, staying along with local families was also a very unique and incredible opportunity for our students to experience the life of local people and practice their oral English every day This study tour was definitely a treasurable and memorable experience for the students. 

Language-rich Learning Environment Activities
