Agents join fam-trips in France after IALC Workshop in Rouen


On 26 April 2015, as the IALC 2015 Workshop in Rouen came to an end, 34 agents from 19 countries departed on three fam-trips to IALC-accredited schools in France.

The first fam-trip took agents to Paris where they visited ELFE and France Langue. They then continued to the France Langue centres in Bordeaux and Biarritz.
"It was great to meet all the staff and getting beter idea of how our clients are treated," says Nada Malkova, Director of Czech agency Student Agency. "I also found it useful to meet other agents - being able to share the agent's experience, talking about differences between our markets, marketing and sales ideas, getting recommendation for new schools, etc."

The second fam-trip also took agents to ELFE and France Langue in Paris, before continuing to Lyon to visit Lyon Bleu International and on to Montpellier for a typical Mediterranean lunch and visits to Institut Linguistique Adenet and its sister school EasyFrench. The fam-trip finished with a guided tour of the city and dinner in the lighthouse of Palavas in a village along the shore. "We had a lovely day: warm thanks to all agencies who visited us," said Claudia Adenet from the school.

The third fam-trip flew agents straight to the South of France, to Aix-en-Provence where they visited the city and the new premises of IS Aix-en-Provence.
On day two they travelled to Cannes, where the College International de Cannes had organised a pottery and a dessert workshop to give them a taste of two popular student activities and of Provence.
They continued along the coast to Nice in the evening to visit alpha.b Institut Linguistique and France Langue Nice.

According to the IALC 2015 Study Travel Research Report fam trips are one of the preferred ways for agents to establish a relationship with a new partner school or to maintain relationships with existing partners. Agents not only see the school and location firsthand, but also meet the staff who will be looking after their students.
