For more than a quarter of a century, Waiariki has been the go-to institute for people who want to learn English if English is not their first language. Waiariki’s first student of English, Nicole Oschger, came from South Africa in 1986 and since then, more than 3,500 students have come from at least 50 countries to learn or improve their English speaking, pronunciation, listening and writing skills.
