Timaru Immersion Weekend for Teachers of Languages
Course Duration
2 day programme

Friday 6 November to Sunday 8 November 2020

Friday evening 7:00pm - Sunday midday

Grosvenor Hotel, Timaru

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 Timaru.

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, Samoan, Spanish and Tongan

Who Should Attend

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


No cost to teachers for the weekend. For those travelling by car to the event, FLS can assist with mileage reimbursement for those driving from more than 80km from Timaru. If flights are required these will be booked and paid for by FLS - Centre for Languages. Please note that rooms will be allocated on a twin-share basis.



Additional Information

Health & Safety: We will comply with government alert levels and recommendations.

Eligibility: The Rotorua Immersion Weekend is open to North Island based language teachers and Korean teachers nationwide.
