I spent 17 weeks at AEI attending the High School Preparation course. It was a great experience and I learnt some high school subjects and New Zealand culture, as well as English. The lessons were very various and useful for my next step, which is to attend a local high school. All the staff and teachers are kind, friendly and supportive. I highly recommend AEI to all who are thinking to come to New Zealand for study.
