Teach English in New Zealand

Overview

New Zealand's mythical landscape, used as the backdrop for much of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, imbues an adventurous lifestyle of white water rafting, bungee jumping and other adrenaline-inducing activities. Small in size but big on variety, its North Island is home to Volcanoes, sandy beaches and farmland, while the South Island boasts glaciers, fjords and snow-capped peaks.

It covers all bases from ski resorts to cosmopolitan cities through to areas rich in Maori and Pacific Islands heritage. A passion for the outdoors and a love of Rugby Union unifies the country's large European-descended population and indigenous Maori groups.
