English Language Courses in Ireland

English language courses designed to give you English language skills for real life settings. Learn English to live, work and study in an English-speaking environment.

We offer a range of quality English language courses in Ireland to suit your time and budget needs.

You can join an English language class on any Monday throughout the year (except where the school is closed for a public holiday, in which case, courses start on the Tuesday).

Our group English language classes run each day Monday to Friday for 3 hours per day (15 hours per week).

Our syllabus is task-based, with students carrying out tasks in class to provide you with the necessary skills to manage using the English language in real-life situations. 

We also aim to make the syllabus student-centered, placing the emphasis on your training, enabling you to become more independent and provide you with practical skills to apply to your ongoing language learning when you finish your course. 

We have stated objectives and weekly targeted learning outcomes which are 
achievable and measurable.

Your teachers will monitor your progress throughout your course. As a result you will receive regular feedback and advice.
