Fun ways to learn language

Learn about February in New Zealand (listen and read):

February is the last month of our summer. It's hot and muggy (humid) at times and you can get sunburnt. It also still rains but there are usually long fine periods (spells) between showers. Occasionally there are tropical cyclones and stormy weather.

Some workers with families go on holiday now because students go back to school late in the month. The camp grounds are also full of tourists and the beaches become crowded, especially at the weekend. New Zealanders love gardening and the lawnmowers are noisy too.

Waitangi Day is always on the 6th of February but this year it is not a long weekend.  Valentine’s Day is on the 14th but is only a commercial fun day not really a party day.

See the February photo quiz for useful vocabulary.

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.
