About NEO School of English

Our Mission and Vision

We believe learning is a process and, as such, needs constant adjustment to changing needs. We trust students know what they need and we would rather guide and assist them than have one learning method for everybody. Students are always at the centre of their learning process. Reaching students’ goals is what matters.

Our Teachers’ Background

All our teachers have gained and developed their professional expertise while teaching both abroad and in New Zealand. They have taught in prestigious international schools and universities as well as for some of the world’s biggest companies, such us 3M, Santander Bank, IKEA, Siemens and Volvo. Between them, they have taught on five continents.

Our Teaching Philosophy

We place an emphasis on providing professional teaching and strong interpersonal skills.Our teachers have experience in communicating effectively with people from many different cultural backgrounds. They are experienced in all levels of language training, from General English to various exam courses and ESP courses.

Our Courses

IELTS Exam Preparation Training

We understand many people’s future depends on this exam result and we know how limited time is for most of them. Since time is money, we do our best to provide our students with the classes they really need. If they have taken the exam and we know clearly what the problem is, for example, writing, we’ll design their learning programme to improve this skill. If you need to study English before you get to the level of your dream score, we can help you with this too.

OET Exam Preparation Course

OET is still the relatively easier option for those who want to be registered nurses or other medical professionals in New Zealand. What’s more, B score meets the Immigration NZ requirements when applying for a resident visa. We are a certified OET centre and offer quality, hands-on preparatory courses. Due to student feedback, we offer an extra class to help with on the writing part of the exam.

Frequently Asked Questions

You need to be an Intermediate level student and know about the type of questions in the test. We will focus on the skills you need to develop and help you get the score you need.

We are a dynamic, future-oriented organisation. We combine traditional teaching methods with innovative approaches. Our classes are very attractive and students are engaged in many different ways. As you can tell from students' testimonials, we think outside the box and encourage students to do so too. In our school, students are the highest priority. We satisfy their needs through effective counselling, tailor-made learning schemes and constant feedback.

Yes, you can. It is one of the many innovations we have on offer. This way students not only save time and money, they also have more energy to focus on developing the language skills they really need. Come and meet us to discuss your personalised learning schedule.

Yes, you can. We offer evening and weekend courses. We also run IELTS emergency classes for students that need specific advice for an upcoming test.

We make sure students in a group have similar language competencies. This way, students benefit from the synergy effect, stimulate one another and use their learning time effectively. If a student is not satisfied with their group, we discuss their needs and place them in the best group possible.

Our groups are always small – the maximum number of students in a group is 10 (but classes are usually smaller). This is the only way to guarantee that every student interacts both with other learners and the teacher. That’s also how we make sure students get regular feedback on their progress. This way, we ensure students constantly develop their language skills and are satisfied with their progress.
