Hi, my name is Adriano, I’m from Brazil and in 2017 I was looking to improve my English and then I thought: Why not study in another country?

Since I decided to improve my English I searched for different countries to study, but New Zealand was special, so I packed my bags and arrived in Auckland in January 2018. New Zealand has beautiful landscapes like mountains, beaches and the temperature is very similar to Brazil in the summer.

Before I went to New Zealand I visited Sydney, Australia for one week of holidays and enjoyed it. Arriving in New Zealand, I had a week off before I started my class at Languagues International and traveled to some cities near Auckland. I visited beautiful cities like Wellington, Coromandel and Rotorua, where I got to know the Maori culture.

There were 9 weeks studying at Languages International and 10 weeks meeting people from different countries like Korea, China, Japan, Russia, Thailand and Switzerland. LI has a great structure, the teachers are very good and fun. The location is excellent, it is situated inside Albert Park and I could walk to where I was staying at the YMCA Hostel.

Before returning to Brazil I had the opportunity to visit Asia and visited two countries, Malaysia and Singapore.

I want to continue studying English and one day I will return to New Zealand to visit the South Island, because I did not have the opportunity to go there when I was studying.

If you have not decided where to study English, I recommend you go to New Zealand and study at Languages International.
