Wellington College of Languages
(WCL) is a professional English language school in the centre of
Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. We are committed to
providing a high standard of education and training for overseas
students seeking to improve their English.
As well as offering a General English course we
specialise in IELTS exam preparation and have a high success rate
in the examinations. Other specialised modules such as Business English
are also available.
Our goal is to maintain class sizes at an
average of 12 students per class and many will have fewer than 12. This
ensures a friendly and effective learning environment.
Teachers at WCL are
well-qualified and experienced in teaching English to overseas students.
Our administration and support staff are friendly and available to help
with any problems students may have.
Students choose the
length of their study programme, but the college will advise them on the
length of time it will take to achieve their goals. We generally
recommend an initial course of at least 24 weeks.
An individual progress report is given to
students every six weeks and, if requested, sent regularly to parents
Certificates of Attainment
are awarded to all students who satisfactorily complete a course with
80% attendance or higher.
Current facilities include 20 classrooms,
student common room and a library with internet access. Regular access
to outside activities such as sports and cultural exhibitions is also
provided as part of the weekly programme.
WCL is registered as a tertiary education
provider with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and a member of
CRELS (Combined Registered English Language Schools) and EWI (Wellington
Education International). WCL can also introduce students to further
education courses offered at New Zealand and Australian polytechnics and
