All New Zealand residents from non-English-speaking
backgrounds have opportunities to gain English language skills so they can
participate in all aspects of life in New Zealand, whether in the workplace,
further education, family or the community.
Since 2004, WIE have
been running successful Adult ESOL Literacy and Literacy programmes. These programmes are
designed for those learners that have little or no English Literacy skills, so
they are able to live day to day in an English speaking country
