English Language Courses

Adult English Programme

Course Description

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.

LEARN THE LANGUAGE

At Atlantic S.E.A.L., our motto for successful language acquisition is: "If you don't want to lose it, use it!" So we give our students plenty of opportunities to do so. Vocabulary building and conversation lessons are linked to leisure programmes, so our students can enjoy and appreciate Ireland's cultural, historical and natural heritage while putting their language lessons to use. We specialise in small group English language tuition & we adapt our teaching methods to your unique learning style. Small group sizes of average 3 (low season), 5 (high season), mean that you can choose themes that you like to improve your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Grammar and written exercises are also part of our course, designed for your level. You can attend a General English group course, in the mornings and add on the private 'one to one' or 'two to one' lessons in the afternoons, or earlier in the morning before the group lessons commence. Only English is spoken at all times, during leisure activities and even at the place where you will reside.

We like to give our adult students full control of their programme content : so, you can design your own programme (Customise) or you can enjoy one of our all inclusive Packages which are based on popular choices of past students. Just choose the flexible options form from the Forms and Prices section and choose the options that suit you best. Return the form to the email address at the bottom of the page and start or renew your English language learning journey. If you have any questions the School Director will answer you immediately so if you have any further questions, simply ask on the enquiry form below.

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.' All our teachers are qualified to a very high standard and because we are also a teacher training centre, our own teaching methods are always being upgraded and reassessed in order to ensure our programmes are effective and successful for our students. We offer a level assessment prior to arrival in order for you to be placed in the correct class for your English level. Each student's needs are considered and catered for and thanks to the fact that we limit the school size to a maximum of 30, (average class size of 6-8 students depending on English level) there is a great 'family' atmosphere and lots of relaxed communication in English. This helps our students progress quickly. There are many opportunities to practise what you learn outside the classroom with your host family and during our optional cultural and leisure programme.

Adult Flex­i­ble PLUS and Adult Pack­age PLUS

Our very popular Adult Flexible option that allows for you to create your own programme now has a new option. Micro Gen 20+6 'Group' offers 20 lessons of English from 9.30-1.30 Monday to Friday plus and additional 6 micro group lessons on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. This option is ideal for students who wish to have extra lessons but would prefer a micro group experience rather than the more intense focus of one to one lessons.

Once you have chosen your programme just continue down the form as you normally would and add your leisure, accommodation and airport transfer if you require them.

Adult Package Plus is an all inclusive package option that includes leisure, accommodation and airport transfers, as well as the micro group afternoon lessons rather than the more intense focus of one to one lessons.

In completion you will have the opportunity to take the Cambridge Linguaskill exam which is listed as an additional option on the application forms. For more information on this see below.

Cam­bridge Lin­guaskill Exam

All of our students have the option to take the Cambridge Linguaskill exam.

Linguaskill is a quick and convenient online test to check the English levels of our students. It tests all four language skills: speaking, writing, reading and listening. It is certified by Cambridge University so this means that you will not only receive a certificate from Atlantic S.E.A.L but you can also receive a certificate in all four langauge skills. Results are aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), the international standard for describing language ability.
