In April 2012, 10 agents from seven countries visited ILI in Northampton, Massachusetts on the IALC New England Fam trip. The agencies were Cactus Language, Maadri Turismo e Cursos, Aula Inglés, Nista Language Center, Project II Myslowice, Idealangues, Lingua Service, Metzenbauer Sprach, and Good to Great Intercambio.
Highlights of the trip included a moveable feast (dinner samplings at three downtown restaurants), an opportunity to talk with the Mayor of Northampton, visits to host families and a College and University Fair with seven of ILI’s Academic Pathways Program Partners. The group was very surprised to see directors of two IALC schools from New Zealand walk through the door while at one of the restaurants. James Upton from Nelson English Centre and Darren Conway from Languages International had decided to stop in Northampton on their way from Toronto to NYC and by chance had chosen the restaurant where the FAM trip was eating dessert. A good time was had by all!
