What our clients say

Our clients come from all walks of life; young and old, students and professionals, from ski instructors to CEOs….

They are happy to talk about their experience at The Language House.

  • I never imagined when we started that I would become fluent in English and that I could manage meetings and video conferences in English and follow English language films. It’s fantastic. Many thanks.
  • The Language House adapts the content of the courses to our needs on a weekly basis. One week we work on presentations, another week we work on language for meetings. We can use the English from these lessons immediately in our daily work with our clients.
  • I really appreciated the English courses with The Language House and especially Garry, our teacher who was friendly, serious while also having a sense of humour. I am sure that my English is much better today thanks to lessons with The Language House.
  • The lessons are very full of life, very interesting, and adapted to our need - a group of journalists.
  • Yes, I highly recommend The Language House as an ideal solution for companies that need to improve their English communication skills.
  • I am now much more confident and relaxed in English. No more stress. It is possible to have efficiency, pleasure and fun learning business English with The Language House.
  • I just wanted to let you know that I am starting today at P&G!! My two interviews in English went really well. Thank you so much for your great advice, these interviews were exactly on the same line as yours.
  • My English lessons with The Language House were interesting, fun and lively. I feel much more comfortable speaking English. If I have to socialise in English or moderate a forum in English, I don’t have the panic and stress I had before. I actually look forward to using my English.

Nelson

Nelson is the sunniest city in New Zealand. It’s a great little city. It’s safe, friendly and there’s always something happening. New Zealanders (Kiwis) rate Nelson as a top city for lifestyle, education and seaside activities. It is a community with heart and a sense of arts, music and fun. Nelson is a great city for walking, cycling, swimming, sailing and mountain biking. Nelsonians love to be outdoors! There are walking tracks around the hills and along the river. Kite surfers and stand-up paddle boarders are in action every day on Tahunanui Beach. Nelson is regarded as one of the best places to mountain bike in the world. For something less physical, you can relax in the 6-screen cinema, watch some live theatre, visit the museum or listen to a band in one of the pubs. Chat to the friendly locals and sample fresh local produce such as seafood, olives, wine, and craft beers. Life in Nelson is interesting and lively, without big city hassles. You can walk and cycle everywhere.
