Immersion Weekend for Teachers of Languages

Rotorua

If you would like to spend a weekend away in the company of fellow language teachers, using your language and enjoying what is on offer in one of NZ’s favourite get-away spots, then we invite you to apply for our Immersion Weekend in Rotorua.

From Friday evening to Sunday midday, we will have a mixture of language activities, local sightseeing and time to relax and enjoy the company of other teachers.

2020 has not been without its challenges, so this is a chance to have a short break and at the same time enjoy being able to work in another language for a few days in supportive company.

Languages Offered:

Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Tongan

All languages are offered subject to registrations. In the event that we do not have adequate numbers to proceed with any language, we will offer you the opportunity to join the South Island immersion weekend in Timaru to be held from Friday 6 November – Sunday 8 November, if your chosen language is being offered there.

Dates: Friday 30 October to Sunday 1 November 2020
