ENGLISH COURSE

Course programme, Level Test and Teaching Method

Students generally attend classes in the morning which follow the same layout as a General English Course. There are 15 hours English classes per week held Monday to Friday and split into two 90 minute lessons per day. Class size is restricted to a maximum of 15 students and all levels are available from Elementary (A1) to Advanced (C1).
Two teachers, covering different prearranged areas of the syllabus, work alternately with each class. One teacher takes the first 90-minute session which focuses on language in use, vocabulary and grammar practice. After a short break, the second teacher starts the next 90-minute session which covers conversational practice, pronunciation, listening and speaking. This work share provides variety for the students and allows them to benefit from different personalities and teaching styles.All our teaching staff are university graduates and are qualified to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL).
Students will receive the English course materials and workbooks as part of the programme.

Certificate of Attendance

After completion of the English course, a Certificate of Attendance will be issued to each student. It certifies the progress that has been made and the level of English reached.

HORSE RIDING

Our Horse Riding and Learn English camp in Dublin offers the opportunity to combine the learning of English language with professional riding lessons. We are pleased to offer students a program of English language lessons combined with riding lessons in one of Ireland’s largest equestrian centers, located south of Dublin and easily accessible from the school where English classes are held. Professional instructors train young riders in indoor and outdoor arenas, in an ideal environment for riding. Riding lessons can also include dressage and polocrosse notions. The boys and girls participating in Horse Riding and Learn English mainly come from France, Italy and Spain.
