Right now, many of our students around the world are staying home and saving lives. Our current students here in Auckland and all our staff are doing the same. While you are doing your bit by staying at home, you might want to relive your New Zealand experience or perhaps you are looking forward to an upcoming New Zealand experience. So, in our next few posts, we’ll give you some ways to to enjoy New Zealand no matter where you are in the world.

First up is some Kiwi music for you to enjoy at home. Here is a playlist of some of Languages International‘s students’ and staff’s favourite New Zealand songs. There’s a real mixture on the list: old songs and new songs, pop, reggae and rock songs, a few songs in Māori and even a tribute to New Zealand’s much-loved Director General of Health, Dr Ashley Bloomfield.

And, here are a few stay-at-home-themed music videos made – at home, of course – by New Zealand artists over the last few weeks. We hope you enjoy them!

UPDATED: Our Director of Teacher Training, Michael Gask, has given us this humorous lockdown song to add to the list.

What are some of your favourite New Zealand songs?

Can you recommend a song from your country that other students might like?

Have you seen any other cool songs or videos related to #stayhome?

Tell us in the comments and share the links if you can so that we can enjoy listening to your recommendations too!

Kia kaha! ❤️
