Hi Moh - welcome to the world of British Expats! I've not had personal experience of this, but many people have spoken about IELTS tests which seem to be a requirement for speakers of other languages? I think the requirements are stipulated on the Immigration New Zealand web site?

If she's keen to learn - I think Learn Direct offer some good foundation courses in English? Getting her along to one of those where she should be able to learn in a group environment where everyone else will be in the same boat may be a really good start.

BTW - don't expect everyone to be friendly if you pick a username like "Taxman"!!!

You won't be able to claim points for her under the skilled migrant catagory if she isn't up to "primary applicant" standard IIRC.

This thread is now closed as Taxman was a bogus registration.

Apologies to those whose time, help & efforts were completely wasted by the OP.
