Who we Are
We believe expert tuition in small groups, combined with an exciting leisure programme that stimulates the mind and body, sets the tone for a successful and pleasurable learning experience. Our students build great confidence in using English thanks to the hands-on, relaxed approach of our teachers here in Schull. Students' progress isn't limited to just the classroom setting; they give more effective presentations, deal better with clients and counterparts on the phone & by email, and feel more confident communicating in English at work and socially following their experience here. Even shy students will enjoy the experience of living with a host family, as often there will be other people of a similar age group in the household where they stay. Our teachers accompany students on leisure outings, so new language is reinforced even while out having fun.
