With the COVID-19 lockdown and face-to-face tutoring in homes and classes no longer possible, English Language Partners were able to respond quickly.
English Language Partners’ community-based teachers and volunteers continue to build on their teaching skills so they can support former refugees and migrants and their communities.
Nationally, English Language Partners have had over 280 online language groups meeting and in the weeks since lock down learners from across New Zealand have attended over 28,000 hours of online classes.
Learning hasn’t stopped at English Language Partners – Many of these learners have very limited English and few contacts in the wider community to turn to in a time like this. For some learners this is their first opportunity to engage with technology in English. We are even hearing of people ‘bringing a friend’ to class which means we are reaching new people that would otherwise be isolated
