IALC was pleased to sit down with Brett Shirreffs, Marketing & Operations Director at IALC accredited language school Languages International during the IALC Taiwan and Japan Roadshows, to discuss developments at the school, as well as preview the upcoming IALC 2020 Auckland Workshop.
IALC: How have you enjoyed your IALC Roadshow experience to Taiwan and Japan?
It’s been really good! I have had the chance to catch up with a number of people I know but also meet with many new agencies too. It’s always good when you can see that mixture of agencies at Roadshows like this and it has been a really great week for our school.
IALC: Why is it special to come to Taiwan and Japan for Languages International?
Taiwan and Japan have long been strong markets for Languages International and this kind of event shows you that there always new people to meet, there are always new opportunities to explore. It’s always worth making new contacts and it has been a delight to visit both Taiwan and Japan with such other great IALC schools too.
IALC: What’s new at Languages International for 2019?
2019 is a year of preparation in many ways. Our beautiful premises and three historic buildings are currently being renovated, all in time for the much awaited IALC 2020 Auckland Workshop! We are getting extremely excited for this amazing Workshop next year.
IALC: How excited should agencies be about the IALC 2020 Auckland Workshop?
We have been discussing and planning this workshop for the last 12 months and now the event is becoming very real! We are counting down from a year to go and we can’t wait to welcome agencies and service providers to Auckland. Auckland is undeniably a beautiful city, built on two magnificent harbours and the landscape drapes itself over 50 old volcanos which allows for incredible opportunities explore this truly unique destination. It will be an unmissable week.
