    Default Information, please!

    I've been studying american english for some years, I'm Brazilian and I have interest in living in New Zealand one day, cause it's such a beautiful country and developed. So I have some questions if someone can help me:

    -Is the accent in NZ very hard? For example, I study the american english and the british english is pretty easy too, but jamaican and indian english are both "kinda difficult".

    -How is to live as a foreigner in New Zealand? About how longe if I live there I can adapt?

    -Does my college/university is accepted to work there? If not, how can I graduate in NZ?

    These are the questions and if you guys can add some information I appreciate!

    1. https://www.google.co.uk/#q=youtube+NZ+accent Give it a listen, and see what you think! (Warning, some of the people who recorded the clips about NZ are joking. We had someone on the forum a few years ago who believed the girl who said all males who reach the age of 21 get given sheep - !)

    2. It depends on your nature, and how hard you work at it - impossible to predict.

    3. Many Brazilians have come to NZ. You need to submit your qualifications for an IQA http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualificatio...ns-assessment/. NZQA is a government body which is tasked with investigating any foreign qualification, after which they state what NZ Level it is at, and any NZ qualification it is comparable to.

    I suggest you look at the INZ website https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas, to get an idea of the different sorts of visas, and the requirements for them. There is a lot of information on INZ. It's the best way of getting to know where to start.
