A large earthquake (6.3 on the Richter Scale) struck Christchurch early yesterday afternoon. All of the staff and students of Languages International in Christchurch were safely evacuated from the school building. We have checked on the situation of our students and confirmed that they are in safe accommodation. We will continue to update this post as we get more information; if you have an urgent need for specific information, please call Darren Conway on +64 (0)21 362 614.
