Languages International, Maria will be back in New Zealand next year to study at Massey University. Our Regional Marketing Manager, Larissa Merz, describes Maria as a “a true star.”
“Maria had a fantastic attitude to her studies and took all the opportunities offered by the school to improve her English.” says Annie Thode, our Director of Studies.

Maria says “With LI it’s easy to pass IELTS or any other exams.”

She should know; she achieved an impressive 7.0 in the IELTS exam (Academic module.)

“LI (Languages International) is a school that does everything possible to put you on the right track to achieve your goal.

Learning Centre is a unique place, it seems that you can spend all days there not only because you have to study, but because it’s so stimulating to be there.

With LI it’s easy to pass IELTS or any other exams. They give you all possible support. The only thing you have to do is to absorb the knowledge this school gives you and enjoy your study.

IELTS especially is not as scary as we think about it, the main point is practice. The more you practice IELTS test examples the more confident and relaxed you will feel at the real exam. And the most important thing – don’t be lazy to write as many essays as you can and have them checked by the teachers, lol.

I’m sorry if there is a lot of grammar mistakes, this is my true weakness.
