We were awarded the top category by the NZQA in 2013, which means our full-time students are entitled to work rights http://nzstudywork.immigration.govt.nz/. WELS is well known as a high-quality school. Our experienced qualified teachers and small class sizes enable students to improve their skills and achieve their goals while enjoying their time in New Zealand. Our competitive prices mean that Wilkinson’s is the best value language school in Christchurch.
Every Friday afternoon we offer fun activities with a language teacher. It’s a great opportunity to meet other students and practise English conversation!
We can also teach people who paid money for English lessons for residency requirements when they immigrated to New Zealand (English for Migrants).
Our central location in Addington means that we are close to many shops, cafes and other facilities. With Hagley Park only a few minutes walk away, there are also peaceful places to relax.
There are a number of different transport options for students. There is plenty of free car parking on site and we have bike racks where you can leave your bicycle. It is also easy to get to our school by bus. For updated information on Christchurch buses, have a look at the new timetables at (Link:http://www.metroinfo.co.nz/preview/map/)
