NZ Language Schools teach students to speak English just as badly as the rest of NZ

Disturbing….

An Auckland language school has introduced a programme to help international students speak Kiwi English.

Methods used by the New Zealand Radio Training School to train its broadcasters are being used to teach foreign students at the National Technology Institute to say “fush and chups”, “fried iggs” and “Nu Zillund”.

Indonesian student Fahami al Weny, 24, who was among the first to take the course, said it had helped him understand New Zealanders better, and hoped he would be able to speak with a Kiwi accent in future.
