The English language is probably one of the most important subjects in the New Zealand school curriculum. Indeed, such disciplines as biology, chemistry, arts or economics deal with one particular aspect of our world or society, but all of them use English to communicate about their discoveries. Having good English language skills is important in every area of studies and every profession and will serve you throughout your life, whether you become an IT specialist or an orchestra conductor.
Of course, as most of us picked up English as we grew up, we don't need to follow grammar and pronunciation courses, as we do when learning a foreign language. Still, there are important language skills that we normally don't develop naturally as children. The most obvious example is written English. No child can read or write until they start their formal education at school or at least until their parents teach them those skills. Having a good level of written English is extremely important in modern society. Books are a major source of information both for students and professionals, and text messages on the Internet have become an important means of communication even in everyday life. Not surprisingly, reading and writing will be among the first abilities you will acquire in any school in Wellington and New Zealand.
Even if most New Zealand children can speak English with their parents, their speaking skills may need improvement. At the age of 7, we rarely discuss such topics as fiscal policies or global warming, but we're likely to have conversations about them when we become adults. This means that as we grow up and learn new things, our level of spoken English also goes up. The role of our school English teacher is to help us in that process. And if school lessons aren't enough, it can be a great idea to take a couple of courses with a personal tutor. Luckily, there are a lot of qualified English tutors living in Wellington or teaching online who you can contact if you need help.
Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and its third-largest city. It has the best educational institutions in the country where children can pick up the basics of the English language and improve their level with an experienced teacher. Wellington is also home to several universities where students interested in language-related areas, like literature, linguistics or communication can continue their studies. But formal education is, of course, only one part of the learning process. How we spend our free time can be extremely important too.
One of the great places to improve your level of English while having fun is the theatre. Through plays, we can learn how people spoke in English at different times, learn new words and expressions and diversify our speech. Wellington has several permanent theatres, including Circa Theatre and BATS. It also hosts the New Zealand International Comedy Festival and a variety of other artistic events. You will get to know the cultural heritage of New Zealand better and deepen your understanding of both the language of the country and its history.
Probably, the most efficient way to improve your level of written language is reading. Your school English teacher will certainly give you lists of books during their lessons. But you can complement them on your own by reading something you really like in your free time. Wellington has numerous bookshops offering a great choice of literature and you'll certainly find excellent books to get hooked on. Just drop by Pegasus Bookshop or Arty Bees Books Ltd and they will suggest the most amazing fiction to you.
There is a variety of ways to boost your level of English on your own, but if you ever feel like it gets too difficult you can, of course, contact a personal teacher. Wellington has some of the best English tutors in New Zealand who will tailor their lessons to your needs and help you move on quickly for a reasonable fee. Or else you can study English with a personal teacher online from the comforts of your home.
The advantage of studying English with a private tutor is that you get their full attention and time, which of course wouldn't be possible with a school teacher. Your personal English tutor will know exactly what your difficulties are and what skills you need to work on. They will choose the best exercises for you and your level will improve with each course. Even a few hours of private lessons each month can help students progress very quickly.
Private courses help students get more confident and start enjoying what they're doing. As their English language skills get better, they will get motivated to work harder and it can have a positive effect on their grades for other subjects too. They will be eager to spend some of their free time revising and learning new things.
Now that you know how efficient and enjoyable private courses can be, the only remaining question is how to find a good teacher. A lot of people try to search for English teachers on the internet, in newspapers or by word of mouth, but often they don't have enough information and it can be difficult to choose the right person when there are several offers on the table. Let us suggest a useful tool that will help you not to get in that situation. The name of the tool is Superprof. Superprof is a platform whose main objective is to put students in contact with private tutors in different subjects.
