Each month our Embassy English centres plan a variety of activities where students can both explore their new host cities and have creative ways to bring their English language skills to life. Recently we caught up with Nita Yukseloglu, Learning Technologies Specialist/English Teacher, to learn more about a recent Bringing English to Life activity for Embassy Auckland students.
In summer months we visit a different beach or regional park almost every week, but this was the first Friday in a while that the weather was nice enough to brave the outdoors.
Over half our school ended up coming along!
We stopped off on the way at the Arataki Visitors Centre, with its giant photo frame perfectly set up for selfies. Then, it was on to the beach.
Piha is known across New Zealand for its volcanic black sand and awesome surf.
Between the sand and the sea is Lion Rock, so-named because it kind of looks like a crouching lion.
Our daring students braved the winter cold to have a paddle in the water, then climbed Lion Rock to take in the views of the Waitakere mountains.
We warmed up again with lunch in the café across the road.
We had a fantastic day exploring the natural beauty of New Zealand!
And we look forward to many more beach visits now that spring is here!
Auckland is famous for culture, nightlife, and adventure. At Embassy English Auckland, you will be poised to explore the world-renowned natural wonders of New Zealand, including stunning beaches, rugged mountains, and diverse island landscapes.« Previous post
