Language Courses in Auckland
Auckland is a magical city with the most ethnically diverse population in New Zealand. According to Statistics New Zealand, an impressive 39% of its population was born overseas, which means that Auckland is proportionally more diverse than Sydney, Los Angeles, London and New York. With a population of about 1.4 million residents, Auckland has more than 220 recorded ethnic groups living in the city, including communities of the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian, Indian, Samoan and more!
And even though English is still the most-spoken language in the area and across the country, the 2013 census paints a picture of ever-increasing language diversity in the country's largest city. For example, Asian languages are the most spoken ones, with almost 100,000 speakers, but there are also thousands of Hindi, Samoan, Tongan, German, Italian, Japanese and Korean speakers living in the city. Become friends with these peoples, broaden your professional horizons and explore new cultures with a different perspective by learning a foreign language in Auckland. Contact us at Language Trainers and we will prepare a tailor-made course for you to become fluent in a short time, no matter how challenging the language or how busy your schedule.
Where to Practise Foreign Languages in Auckland: Sign up for a Language Trainers course today. Our team of native-speaking instructors has extensive experience tailoring courses to students’ preferences and needs, so you will start to speak your target language from the very first lesson. However, if you want to polish your accent and become more confident when speaking in a foreign language, it is an excellent idea to join a language exchange group. There, you will be able to put your skills into practice in real-life settings and interact with learners and native speakers alike. For example, International Friends Auckland Meetup is a group for all nationalities and ages who want to meet other bilingual or multilingual speakers and discuss anything using their foreign language skills. They organise at least one event per week, so you will surely find an opportunity to attend and put your new language skills into play!
Where to Study Foreign Languages in Auckland: In our increasingly globalised world, knowledge of a language and culture other than your own is a considerable advantage. This knowledge helps you to engage as a more sensitive and sophisticated global citizen, and there are plenty of places to learn such skills in Auckland. For example, you can take a personalised course with us at Language Trainers. Our professional language instructors will help you achieve fluency in a short time by delivering interactive lessons that cater to every need. Just contact us today and we will design a tailor-made programme just for you! But if you prefer to take up higher education, you can do so at Massey University, where you will learn more about other cultures and perspectives, as well as communication skills, flexibility and disciplined thinking, by taking one of their language courses. Explore languages through a Bachelor of Arts in Languages with elective majors in Chinese, Japanese or Spanish. As well as giving you written and spoken competency in another language, this BA is an invaluable way of gaining insight into another culture and deepening your cultural awareness in general. Please consider that you will need at least a basic understanding of the language of your choosing to enrol, so contact us at Language Trainers as soon as possible. Our Exam Preparation course is the perfect programme to ensure you reach the minimum requirements to get started.
Language Jobs in Auckland: Auckland’s nominal GDP passed $100 billion for the first time in 2019, according to Stats NZ. It is by far the largest regional economy in New Zealand and many international businesses are choosing the city to establish their headquarters, such as Abano Healthcare, APN News & Media, ASB Bank and Air New Zealand. As all these companies are looking to expand abroad, they are always in need of bilingual employees to add to their teams. So, if you want to increase your employability and land a job at any of these businesses, then learning a new language is a smart choice. Auckland is also home to many international business councils and chambers of commerce, including those of the Japanese, Brazilian, Spanish, Chinese and Korean. These are not-for-profit organisations that promote networking and share useful information about how to establish companies abroad. Don’t hesitate to contact them and start connecting with entrepreneurs of foreign origin using the language skills you acquire with us at Language Trainers.
Using Language to Experience Culture in Auckland: Don’t miss the biggest annual celebration of cultural heritage in the city, the Auckland International Cultural Festival! Every year, this event brings together the cultural vibrancy of 56 countries by offering up a vast array of food, entertainment, stalls and activities. Gather your friends and family to experience tastes, sights and sounds from around the world. However, if you specifically want to explore German culture, you will be happy to know there is an annual German Film Festival where you can enjoy classic and new film productions from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Or if you are studying Mandarin instead, you should participate in the Chinese New Year Festival, which attracts about 20,000 people each year and is where you can find stalls selling traditional and exotic delicacies and crafts for affordable prices. Indeed, Auckland has something for everyone. Check out Auckland NZ’s website to find out more about the cultural events organised all year round.
