"I chose to come to RELA because many people recommended the school. There are lots of chances for conversation, and students work in small groups. Rotorua has many activities. We can enjoy mountain biking, hot springs and thermal area and lakes. I especially like the new building at RELA. It is clean and tidy, and we can really enjoy break time because there is a big relaxing place in the new building. There is a good programme for studying English"

"I studied English at RELA for 6 weeks and I really loved it. My reason for studying was to get prepared for the IELTS exam. I needed to get a score of 7.5 for my registration as a physiotherapist here in New Zealand. I passed the IELTS exam with an overall score of 8.0 which I think was possible because of my excellent preparation at RELA. My teachers and the other staff are highly qualified, professional, friendly and amazingly supportive."

"As a qualified teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages, with experience in Australia and South America, I can confidently say that RELA in Rotorua, New Zealand, presents easily the most efficient, progressive and friendly programme I have encountered. My son attended RELA for only a short time, but has made astounding progress, both linguistically and socially. The RELA staff, and the school's attitude and environment, have made his experience there a joyful and productive one."
