With just eight months to go before the 2006 IALC Workshop in Madrid, IALC hosted a launch party for international study abroad agents in late August in the English coastal city of Brighton. The party featured Spanish wine, appetisers and music, and presentations by David Diplock, IALC President, and Juan Manuel Sampere, Director General of the Estudio Sampere Spanish language schools, which will host the 2006 Workshop. Approximately 120 guests attended the launch party, including national language school association executives and media.
In the prize draw, Martin Schatzmann of Credit Suisse won an English language course and accommodation in 2006 at the English Language Centre Brighton & Hove.
The annual IALC Workshop is an event for study abroad agents from around the world, who work as partners of the 90 language schools that are accredited by IALC.
