Shane Global Village- Auckland New Zealand

Auckland is the largest city in the South Pacific. It rolls over a series of hills around two beautiful harbours, and has many long and spectacular views. It's often called the "City of Sails" because of the local people's passion for yachting. It's also a vibrantly multicultural city, with people from all over the world and a huge variety of restaurants serving different cuisines. It's New Zealand's nightlife and shopping capital, and there are always music, comedy, and other cultural events going on. Yet it is also only hours from unspoilt beaches and islands rich in vegetation and wildlife, as well as mountains, ski slopes, and New Zealand's spectacular natural scenery. Beautiful, clean, safe, un-crowded, nuclear-free, unpolluted and inexpensive - where could be better than New Zealand to study English?

SGV Auckland is located in an elegant Edwardian building with windows overlooking Queen Street, the heart of Auckland and the city's main shopping street. It is just minutes from shops, cafes, restaurants, parks, bus and ferry terminals, cinemas, museums, universities and other cultural facilities.
