NEC Nelson

Our partner school NEC (Nelson English Centre) is located in the center of the picturesque city of Nelson, an ideal place from where to head on excursions to the famous Abel Tasman National Park. Here you will study English in a school known for its friendly and welcoming environment, which is experienced in all of its classes.

The school itself is located in the center of the city, in a building which houses the classrooms, as well as a dance room. The school team prepares an engaging program of activities which you can participate in after classes finish in the afternoon and on weekends. Many of these are free, and some have a small cost.

Participate in the school’s program of outdoor activities including hiking, swimming or mountain biking, or perhaps one of the school’s barbeques, movie nights or fishing trips! The school cultivates a socially and culturally engaged environment where students can share their experience with their peers and their teachers alike. 

The school is accredited by IALC (International Association of Language Centres). All teachers hold a CELTA certificate as a minimum and have experience as teachers of English as a foreign language.
