What our students say....

I strongly recommend MMI because of the education and high quality of the learning guidelines. The teachers and classmates are all kind-hearted. During ESOL online classes, my ESOL teacher, Kathy helped me to get through my grammatical mistakes. Of course, these lessons helped my writing skills improve a lot. In class, my buddy helps me to learn some Maori words and she also helps me with what we are doing in learning time. The students concentrate during study time which can actually help you to focus on your work as well. MMI is in a good place, near the lovely beach shore. Because of these reasons, MMI is a great school to belong to.”
