Here is some true inspiration:
Juri is a professional Kayaker from Japan. She arrived in New Zealand with zero English and started studying at NZIE on the beginners classes. She studied with us for one year. She trained every morning at Lake Pupuke, 5 minutes from our campus, before coming to her classes. You might recognise her canoe, used by the NZ Olympic gold medalist Lisa Carrington. Juri’s English has significantly improved and she is now confident talking to her team members, friends and looking at further studies options.
