Language school network converges in Shanghai

THE 28th Annual International Association of Language Centres (IALC) Workshop began earlier this month in Shanghai. The four-day event showcased around 100 accredited language schools from more than 90 worldwide destinations to study travel agents from all over the globe.

IALC was established in 1983 and today is a network of high-quality, independent language schools teaching their native language to international students. Chosen by IALC members, the host city of Shanghai was designated as 2011 meeting point for IALC language schools and professional study travel agencies to present a huge variety of high-quality language programs available worldwide.

With more than 250 participants coming from 40 countries and regions, this was the first time that a language travel event of this size and influence was held in China.

Jasmine Bian, a pioneer of the Chinese language industry and managing director of IALC's 2011 host school Mandarin House, explains, "This year's IALC workshop marks a significant milestone for the international language travel industry in terms of recognizing both the quality of language instruction available in China and particularly the increasing importance and influence of the Chinese language worldwide. As China's premier Chinese language provider, Mandarin House is proud to have contributed to this growing recognition of Chinese as an increasingly relevant language and I foresee this trend will continue to grow further."
