September was a busy month at LI as our Regional Marketing Manager Larissa Merz was in Russia, Kazakhstan and Turkey, participating in a number of New Zealand-themed events. Every city was buzzing with activities, as large groups of attendees gathered to learn about the exciting opportunities Languages International offers to international students. There were school presentations, meetings with universities, alumni reunions, Kiwiana quizzes and even (wait for it!) hands-on workshops on NZ cuisine. We are happy to say that New Zealand pavlova dessert has won the hearts of everyone from Siberia to Istanbul. What an incredible experience for all! Here are some photos from the trip.
