Language trip in New Zealand: learn English in a friendly country!
Are you looking for a country that combines a gentle way of life with a pleasant climate and breathtaking scenery?
Then it's time to go on a language trip in New Zealand.
You can enjoy the legendary hospitality of the inhabitants of the land of kiwis and learn English in a splendid setting...
New Zealand is a country on the other side of the world in Oceania.
It is made up of two large islands and about 600 other small islands.
Isolated from the rest of the world, New Zealand has managed to preserve an outstanding traditional culture and a rich local biopersity.
The country is nicknamed the paradise of the Pacific or the country of the kiwis.
In terms of history, New Zealand was one of the last countries to be discovered by man. The Maori people arrived there in successive waves around the year 1000 and then the European population emerged in 1642. New Zealand then belonged to New South Wales in the late 1700s and 1800s, and was then colonized by the British in 1840.
New Zealand gained independence in 1907, while remaining an independent state within the British Empire.
It should be noted that two wars between Maori and settlers took place from 1843 to 1848 and from 1860 to 1870. Although these two wars and colonization left some bitter traces on their passage in the past, the Maori have since disregarded them and live perfectly at peace with the Europeans.
In terms of population, there are approximately 5 million people in New Zealand, made up of approximately :
The people of New Zealand are basically kind, warm and fraternal.
Nicknamed the kiwis, they will be of great help to you during your language stay in New Zealand, as you will be able to converse with them in English whenever you want.
Always ready to reach out to you, New Zealanders are very supportive, generous and welcoming.
Only in New Zealand can you be invited to enjoy a good wine or a barbecue, even though you met them just a few seconds before!
Moreover, you should know that the country is one of the least corrupt in the world ...
The New Zealanders are also known for their strong attraction to Rugby, their emblematic All Blacks team, as well as their famous Haka!
Kiwis also almost all have a boat and love to sail.
The country of New Zealand is also known for its green, majestic and unique landscapes. You may not know it, but they were actually used for the filming of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
If you want to go on a language trip to the other side of the world, and at a more competitive price than Australia, New Zealand is the destination of choice.
In addition, learning English in this destination has other advantages:
You must first take into account the distance: New Zealand is the furthest country from France. If you take the plane, you will be travelling more than a day in the middle of the flight. You will have to count on a flight of about 30 hours.
The second parameter to take into account is the price of the plane ticket. It can be relatively high. It is therefore better to leave for several months in order to make the most of your language trip in New Zealand, because the courses and the cost of living are less expensive there than in other countries.
In New Zealand, the seasons are just the opposite to our country.
So if you want to enjoy summer in New Zealand, you'll need to travel from Europe in the middle of winter.
The climate is subtropical in the North with mild temperatures all year round.
The average minimums are 6°C and the maximums 26°C.
For the rest of the country, the climate is oceanic and temperate with cool winters.
Average temperatures range from 2°C in winter to 21°C in summer.
In its entirety, whether it is the North Island or the South Island, the country is particularly sunny and has more sunny days than the south of France.
