Per­fect your English skills

Central Leader - - EDUCATION& TRAINING -

Is per­fect­ing your English lan­guage skills one of your res­o­lu­tions for 2015? If so, you need to speak to the friendly team at Dy­naS­peak.

Dy­naS­peak is a lan­guage school that is a part of Te Wananga o Aotearoa. It has five cam­puses across Auck­land in Queen Street, Al­bany, New Lynn, Botany and Manukau.

There’s no bet­ter time to join Dy­naS­peak as this year the school is de­liv­er­ing a New Zealand Cer­tifi­cate in English Lan­guage (NZCEL). This is a new na­tional qual­i­fi­ca­tion in­tro­duced to re­place two of its old pro­grammes – the Cer­tifi­cate in English for Speak­ers of other Lan­guages and the Cer­tifi­cate in Prac­ti­cal English.

The new qual­i­fi­ca­tion pro­vides a clear path­way to fur­ther stud­ies or to en­ter into a ca­reer. Stu­dents will gain a na­tion­ally recog­nised and cred­i­ble qual­i­fi­ca­tion is­sued by the New Zealand Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Author­ity (NZQA), which will make it eas­ier to trans­fer be­tween New Zealand ed­u­ca­tion providers.

Dy­naS­peak of­fers Level 1 foun­da­tion and level 1, 2 and 3 cour­ses at all its sites. NZQA ap­proval for level 4 is pending, but once ap­proved it will be taught in Queen Street and Al­bany only. The school is also a Cam­bridge Ex­am­i­na­tion Test Cen­tre.

This pro­gramme aims to teach stu­dents how to use the English lan­guage in real world set­tings, in­clud­ing read­ing, writ­ing, speak­ing and lis­ten­ing. At lev­els 3 and 4, stu­dents will be able to choose from gen­eral, aca­demic and work­place English and will also be in­tro­duced to New Zealand’s di­verse so­ci­ety and the unique Maori cul­ture.

Class re­quire­ments for the course are 12 to 15 hours per week for 18 weeks, and the cur­ricu­lum is made up of a mix­ture of com­pul­sory face to face learn­ing and self-di­rected study. There are also plenty of class times to choose from to suit each stu­dent’s in­di­vid­ual rou­tine.

If you’re a mi­grant with a per­ma­nent res­i­dent sta­tus, a cit­i­zen over 16 years of age, have pre pur­chased ESOL or have a cer­ti­fied refugee sta­tus, make sure you get your­self en­rolled in this FREE pro­gramme for 2015. For more in­for­ma­tion call 0800 355344, email cour­ses@dy­nas­peak.ac.nz or visit www.dy­nas­peak.ac.nz.

Flu­ent speak­ers: Dy­naS­peak’s level 1,2 and 3 English pro­grammes will have you flu­ent in no time at all.
