MMC Centre

Practice your English language skills - Learn about New Zealand and other cultures
Make new friends - Support and share information - Use your interpersonal skills


Here at the Manawatu Multicultural Council Centre in Palmerston North, we have a range of events, activities and services to help you, whether you are new to Palmerston North, migrant, refugee, or you're a long time resident.


If you want help and support learning or practising English, come to one of our English conversation groups. If you're looking to make new friends, we would love to see you at one of our social activities. We can offer support, advice and information about living in New Zealand. We will advocate on your behalf if your language or cultural background makes it difficult for you to communicate with people or organisations.
