Fun ways to learn language

Learn about September in New Zealand:

September is the first month of our spring. It usually rains, there are lots of rainbows and there is snow in the mountain areas. Sometimes it is fine with a beautiful blue clear sky and it's becoming warmer each day.

Some introduced trees, especially fruit and nut trees, start to show blossoms and new leaves, animals start mating and love is in the air!

There are no public holidays in September but it is Father's Day on the first Sunday of the month. Spring equinox is on the 23rd and the first real days of spring are from then on. Rugby and netball are still important. Skiing and snowboarding are fun now but with the rain, a lot of people stay indoors and play or do indoor sports.

Don't forget Maori language month Kia kaha! (Get going! Try hard! Get stuck in!)

See this month's activities for more information or free lesson for some apps about New Zealand culture.


This site always has new stuff every month so come back soon.
