International Languages Week - Free classes

Friday, 15 August 2008, 3:00 pm
Press Release: Euroasia

International Languages Week (ILW) celebrates the diversity of languages used in New Zealand and throughout the world. ILW provides an excellent opportunity to develop the community's awareness of the languages around them and to highlight the benefits of learning additional languages. Euroasia is a key supporter of ILW and we believe part of our corporate responsibility is to share our passion for foreign languages and cultures with New Zealanders.
