New Zealand has become a popular destination for those who wish to spend some time away from Brazil. Whether for a professional course, for work, or simply to improve their English, this country is very pleasant and accessible to immigrants.
Below, we have listed three of the best cities there for learning English.
Wellington is a city known as one of the most charming in New Zealand, stage to a diversity of cultural and artistic styles. It’s a beach town, but it also holds urban characteristics for people who don’t enjoy small town living. On Cuba Street, we find a concentration of artists, musicians and all that’s best in the city’s cultural life.
It’s also the best option for those who wish to improve their English: First of all, because it has some of the best English teaching institutions in the country. Secondly, it’s the city in New Zealand with the smallest number of Brazilians, making it necessary to dive into the culture and into the local language.
Christchurch is sui generis in this list. Partially destroyed by a series of earthquakes that hit New Zealand in 2011, the town has a great demand for the creative reinvention of its urban space. So it’s a great place for those who, besides having a wish for learning, also desire professional options.
This reinvention of urban space led to many interesting results there. From the new buildings that used innovative technologies in their construction process, to the artworks in the ruins of old buildings, all of this gives the city its character. It’s really an extremely unique place to live in.
Finally, we have Auckland, the country’s most cosmopolitan city. Like Wellington, it also blends an urban/beach culture. However, it clearly has more cultural options and a livelier nightlife for those who are interested in these aspects of the daily life of a town. It’s really the city with the most touristic appeal of the three listed here. It is, perhaps, the best option for a short, mostly touristic stay.
