Hola a todos! – Hi everybody!
There are very important news this end of the term as we are shifting from 69 Worcester Boulevard – Languages International.
We are moving to… Rangi Ruru Girls’ School – 59 Hewitts Rd, Merivale on 1 April. Unfortunately Languages International is closing permanently in Christchurch at the end of this month. We have been leasing rooms in their English school for the last year. This was unexpected and sad news for us; we are lucky we have managed to arrange a new lease agreement with Rangi Ruru Girls’ School. We have several projects for the next couple of years that will enlarge our institute and continue offering professional, experienced Spanish tuition at all levels. Read more… here
