Academic Programme

Our academic programme is based on an interactive approach to language learning.  The teachers are dedicated to modern methods of teaching basing their classes on the learners' needs. The maximum number of students in each class is 5, with an average of 3-4.  This small class-size ensures that each student has the opportunity to speak in class and actively practise English in a comfortable environment.
Social Activities & Excursions

Some of our courses include afternoon excursions to local, scenic or historical points of interest and in summer it is also possible to take full day excursions on Saturdays. The nearby cities of Limerick and Galway are easy to reach by public transport.
