Adult English Programme
We are extremely popular with adult students of English who like to live and learn in a relaxing and beautiful environment where 'the living is easy' and the learning is fun, but highly effective. All our teachers are qualified to a very high standard and can tailor make your classes to fit with your own needs. Whether you require General, Business or specialised English we can provide a programme to meet your personal needs, level and budget.
Our juniors & teenage students (9-12, 13-17) of English love to live and learn in a relaxing and beautiful environment where 'the living is safe and easy.' Nowhere is far away and no time is wasted. They make friends for life in their host family and all over the globe. We average 25 nationalities join our Junior/Teen programme & our policy is that they all speak English together. Practice makes perfect.
Young Kids’ English Summer Camp
"A child taught a second language under the age of 10 is more likely to speak it like a native." As of 2020, our Young Kids' Summer Camp is now specially designed for 2 to 8 year olds. Our kiddie's centre is purpose built for that age group and our teachers are specialists in teaching these very young learners. The kids also have the opportunity to mix with Irish children while learning, laughing, playing and making friends all through the medium of the English language. We have several kids who have 'graduated' to our 9 to 12 and then to our 13 to 17 year old programmes so we are with them all the way to English language fluency. Indeed some of our past students who came to us as teenagers, now send their kids to our Kids' English Summer Camp.
