General English

General English is an intensive course designed for students who wish to improve their English for communication, work, or travel purposes.
General English covers reading, writing, listening and speaking for communication and is taught at all levels from beginner to advanced. Extra workshops and modules are also available, including pronunciation, writing, and English for business. Classes are organised according to English level, which is determined by our own internal testing system.

All students at Campbell receive free weekly 1:1 language workshops as part of their programme.

This is the Wellington Campus timetable. Due to its smaller size, the Auckland Campus runs optional classes on demand. Please contact us for more information.

After completing the course you will be able to:

  • Hold a range of conversations in English on a variety of topics
  • Listen and respond to natural Kiwi speech
  • Read general texts and express a personal viewpoint in both oral and written form
  • Hold a conversation about your own life and country and cultural differences you have noticed in New Zealand
  • Go shopping, banking, order a meal in a restaurant, use public transport, use the public library, visit the doctor, go to the cinema, and other day-to-day activities
