Sophia

On behalf of the English Conversation Group, I’d like to say a very big thank you from the bottom of my heart, to all our dedicated English tutors.
You’ve been very patient, encouraging, and enthusiastic in sharing your knowledge in teaching English. We want to learn English so that we can better blend into the local community. 
We like to make friends with the Kiwis, and be able to talk to them, mutually exchanging cultural and living habits. 
We hope to be of service to give back to the community, doing what we can, within our abilities, in providing volunteer services too. 
The ability to, speak in English enable(s) us to handle our daily activities more confidently, for example, to better understand New Zealand’s legal requirements, taking public transport,
doing banking, seeking medical advice, or making enquires at the Work & Income office, etc. 
Thank you!
