Languages International is very pleased to announce that our Director, Frances Woolcott, has recently been elected Chairperson of APPEL, the Association of Private Providers of English Language. APPEL, whose members enrol about 80% of international students studying English in New Zealand, is the voice for the private English teaching industry in New Zealand.
