Thank you for your work … we have seen a huge improvement and a happier and more confident employee.

The tutor was completely concerned about my needs and really flexible to organize the classes every week. She was able to manage the course and adapt it to my needs. She really understood my areas of improvement and helped me to focus on those areas.

The whole process with Languages International was smooth from start to finish. I received prompt answers to questions, continual updates and support from the team. I can’t comment high enough on the professionalism we received and confidence we felt investing in these courses. Thank you again and hope I can recommend your services in the future!

Languages International had a good understanding of our needs and created a tailor made training for our company. The employees are more confident and have made great progress. I would highly recommend this training.

Languages International approached us in 2011 to discuss opportunities to run a communications course for our team. The cultural diversity, resident centred care and teamwork we celebrate at Elizabeth Knox Home and Hospital seemed a natural “fit” with the learning model described by Nick. The first course was run in 2011 and the second in 2012. The benefits to our team members who participated have been significant and for many has markedly increased their confidence in all forms of communication. We have been so impressed with the results that we have continued with the involvement of LI beyond the 2 year government funding of the course to again offer it in 2013 as three different programmes to meet the needs of “new” New Zealanders, RNs (specific clinical communication) and IELTS. Charlie and Nick and the extended LI team are now viewed as an integrated part of the Knox Community.
Jill Woodward, CEO Elizabeth Knox Home and Hospital
Languages International approached us in early 2011. As a newcomer to New Zealand and to the healthcare sector, we were apprehensive as to whether we could invest in professional development initiatives in addition to our existing program. After much deliberation, the decision was made to progress and the first Active Real Communication (ARC) course for RDNS NZ Community Carers began in mid April and concluded in early November. Languages International compiled a program that was appropriate and effective for our workforce. The changes we observed in our staff were not only impressive but heartening as many of them had not only improved in their roles but conveyed how much the course had helped them in their daily lives particularly interacting with their children. We ran the course again in 2012 and received the same fantastic results. We have been so impressed with Languages International that we have also approached them to discuss other learning opportunities for our Office Staff. Our working relationship with the staff and tutors at Languages International is one we hope to continue well into the future.

…In support of our LN needs, Nick Moore and the team at Languages International (LI) have been invaluable. A strategic partner since 2007, LI have grown to understand the LN needs of our business, providing a high-level of services, products and commitment to our Foundation Skills Strategy. Their knowledge and experience pays compliment to the fact that they are one of NZs oldest private English Language schools.
Robert Siolo, Strategic Advisor New Zealand Police Recruitment
My team member took a course of study at Languages International last year which has helped take his language and business communication skills to a new improved level. I was impressed with their structured learning post, assessment techniques and follow up after completion. I rate LI when compared to typical writing / business communication courses where people from non-English-speaking backgrounds have struggled to grasp some of the more complex language theories…

We have finally come to the end of the language training for our junior officer from Vietnam. We have seen great improvements in him since he first arrived almost six months ago. Thank you very much for your assistance with the planning, noting that we had to make a number of changes (and a couple of no shows). It has been very easy to deal with you all, always with the underlying motivation to help our junior officer. He has his oral presentation on Thursday which will be a great test for him. He has also been successful in the first leadership week, and we are looking forward to the final one next week.
