Javier’s Story

We are delighted to have Javier the Bagpipe player studying with us at Cork English Academy.

We thought the Bagpipes were only played in Ireland where they are known as the Uileann pipes and in Scotland  but we have now learned that they have been played for centuries throughout large parts of Europe, the Caucasus, around the Persian Gulf and in Northern Africa.

”I’m, a student of Cork English Academy and I want to recommend you this school because you’re going to learn in different ways : in class, conversations, games, watching movies, tours of the city.

In Cork you can find almost everything you need for a great time: Irish pubs with traditional music sessions, theatres, cinemas, bowling alleys.

You can also visit beaches, mountains , castles and other typical Irish landscapes.

But the most important of all is the human quality of the Cork English Academy Staff…the teachers and secretaries. They help with any problem”.

Brigitte’s Story

I’m studying English for my future job because I want to be a flight attendant. I’ve chosen Cork because I have never been to Ireland and for me Dublin has too many tourists.

I always travel with easylanguages.com if I want to learn a language in a foreign country. They are always in contact with you for any case and they have always found nice host families for me. In each language holiday I have always stayed with a host family. For me it is the best way to learn a language.

On St. Patrick’s Day I was green as you can see from my pictures. I watched the  parade with other students from the school and we went to many pubs to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day.
