Online Classes at Cork English Academy
When we arrived in Ireland our focus was to learn English. Obviously we were doubt about the school, about life and if we could live far away from our family.
Luckily, the reception of school, the teachers and the classmates helped us to feel better. All of our teachers helped us a lot to learn and the methodology was very good.
We had five weeks on face-to-face classes and then the quarantine started. It was a hard time for everyone and we thought about give up and go back to Brazil.
Fortunately, we stayed in Ireland and we restarted the English language course online. One more time we were worried about the course but the teachers made everything to improve their methods and helped us. To be honest, in many times, it looks like we were at school.
We’ve tried practicing English with some friends at work but, because of quarantine, we just stayed at home and watched movies in English.
The most important thing for improving our English, in our opinion, was the teachers. Every time they told us some ways and points that we needed to focus, they showed another online free material for practice more and more. Everything supported us to learn.
We would like to say thank you for our teachers Joanne, Emma, Phil, Pat, Karen, Aine, Annushka, Gavin, Michael, Christopher, all of the School staff, directors and everyone who supported us. You are amazing.
Thank you very much!
