As a long established school with Highly qualified staff, we have the expertise and skills to design a variety of programmes. We encourage junior and school groups to come to Ireland throughout the year and offer very competitive rates. We have a large number of state schools, private schools and agencies abroad that send groups to the Irish College of English on an annual basis and our student and leader feedback is excellent.
Our programme is based on a strong academic foundation where progression is our focus. Lessons are held every morning, from Monday to Friday and each course is supported by its own carefully planned, tailored syllabus and course book. We use highly interactive exercises and activities, task based projects to refine and amplify our students’ communication skills. Additionally, our activities are tailored to keep our students’ active and entertained while seeing the best of Dublin and its surrounding regions.
As part of our continuous efforts to maintain high quality classes and to enhance our student’s intercultural experience, we work with school or leaders before arrival to design the syllabus and activity plan around your students needs. We can offer a range of programme options or work with you to design a programme to meet your needs. Our teachers are highly qualified and experienced and we can cater for groups from beginners to bilingual students.
Intercultural Irish Teenage Programme
As part of our continuous efforts to maintain high quality classes and to enhance our student’s intercultural experience, we have weekly lessons called the Intercultural Teenage Programme. Irish, teenage students will join lessons to lead an exercise alongside teacher which allows our students the opportunity to connect with Irish teenagers, their peers and we have had an incredibly positive response to this programme.
Host Families in Walking Distance
All our students stay in carefully selected families in the locality and all students can walk to work, we guarantee one nationality per family unless otherwise requested. Our Families are the highlight of the experience and have quality assurance procedures in place, ensuring great stays for all our students.
