General English

The majority of students wishing to take full-time courses opt for course X (20 lessons), X+Z (26 lessons) or X+Y (30 lessons).  Some students like to keep the afternoons free for relaxation, self study, getting to know Dublin, mixing with other students and participating in extra-curricular activities organised by the school.

The school is very happy for students to spend their free time in the school either doing extra work on their English or using the school’s facilities.

People wishing to take a more intensive course such as 26 or 30 classes per week, can combine course X in the morning with course Z or Y in the afternoon and still have time to do afternoon activities or self study.
Alternatively, they may combine course X with some one-to-one classes in the afternoon. Individual timetables for private tuition can be arranged to suit the particular needs of students….Click here for details.

Full time classes are small and in autumn and winter average 9 or 10 students. The courses cover the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing with special emphasis on the spoken word. Teaching techniques such as information gap activities, simulations, role plays, discussion and debates provide opportunities for gaining fluency in the language.
