General English

Our General English course is ideal for students who wish to blend their language studies with the Viva Social Club.  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.

This course is 15 hours per week, leaving plenty of time to enjoy Dublin’s famous cultural and social highlights.

People wishing to take a more intensive course such as 20, 24 or 25 hours per week, can opt for our English for Communication course, or combine their General English course with individual one-to-one lessons.
