"The best part of this course was that it was a big opportunity for us to improve our English. We did listening, speaking, writing and grammar. During class, we usually talked about Ireland's history, culture, language, economy and politics. There were only 6 students in the class so it was a great opportunity for us to speak more. Our teacher Kieran always encouraged us to speak in class and outside the class.

We met students from all over the world and had many social excursions, such as River Dance, which were a lot of fun. During these excursions I also learned a lot about different countries such as Spain, Italy and Germany. I recommend you to join them all because it is also a chance to learn more about Ireland's culture and history. You are learning while having fun.

 I recommend the course because everybody in the University took care of us really well, we learned many things and it was really helpful to improve my English. Besides the school it was the most enjoyable holiday I’ve ever had!"
