Annie at her farewell partyWe are sad to say goodbye to our Director of Studies, Annie Thode, who has been an invaluable staff member at Languages International for the last 27 years. Annie’s first contact with Languages International was as a Teacher Trainee, and since then she has worked here as a much-loved Teacher, Teacher Trainer, Assistant Director of Studies, and then Director of Studies. Annie will be sorely missed by students and staff alike. However, a new adventure is calling her; she and her partner are opening a Bed and Breakfast in Rotorua. We wish them both all the best with this exciting new beginning. (You can see more photos and some videos from Annie’s farewell party over on our Facebook page.)
