What students liked about Unique New Zealand, Auckland
'Unique NZ' employs some very good (and interesting) teachers, and I can say I enjoyed my time in class. But what is even more suprising is that they all really seemed to care. There was always somebody around you could ask to, not only about language problems; and even when classes were already over. Changing the hostfamily or even the course was no problem at all.

Other comments: Son Some of tension for the first time of the homestay and language training, unique seems was fun. 2 weeks attend English plus activity. 1 week, it seems to have entered into some reason under the age class, is questionable in that it could not be firmly attend.
This school has very good and the teachers have been interesting. For every problem you have, you can ask them. And this does not happen only about linguistic problems! A school like a big family!
