Language advice

Learning Adviser talking to student

English Language Enrichment (ELE) has several Learning Advisers. They are all qualified and experienced English language teachers who can help you answer your questions, identify your language needs, plan your learning and choose language resources to work with.

Language advice is by appointment for doctoral candidates and a drop-in service for postgraduate and undergraduate students.

Doctoral candidates

You may make a 30 minute appointment to see an ELE Learning Adviser by emailing ele.sls@auckland.ac.nz.

Postgraduate and undergraduate students

There is a sign-up sheet in the waiting area of ELE on Level 3 for 15 minute appointments during the advisory sessions. The sign-up sheet will be available 15 minutes before each session.

Tuesday 3.30–4.30pm
Wednesday 3.30-4.30pm
Thursday 3.30–4.30pm
Friday 1.30–2.30pm

Important for students!

  • ELE Learning Advisers will not correct your assignments. They will help you to improve and check your own writing.
  • You may normally see an adviser up to four times per semester. Each of your visits should be about a different assignment or language question.
  • Advisers will try to see all students who would like advice, but at busy times this may not be possible.
  • ELE follows the University's Use of Third Party Assistance in Undergraduate and Postgraduate Coursework: Guidelines for students. You must read these guidelines before your advisory session.
