Adult English Language Family Course


About this course

The language course develops all aspects of the English language including Speaking, Pronunciation, Listening, Reading, and Writing. The focus is on improving the student’s ability to communicate clearly and effectively.

We use the text-book ‘New English File’ and students participate in a variety of different activities. Elements of exam Preparation ( TIE for lower-level classes and IELTS for higher-level classes) are also implemented in this English Language Course. Included in the booking confirmation email is a link to our online level test and login details to our school management programme.

Pre-testing before arrival ensures students can begin classes on their first morning. Students are placed in groups according to their level.

Our English Language Family Programmes have been designed for parents and their children, grandparents and their grandchildren, uncles/aunts and their nieces or nephews. This is an ideal opportunity for those who wish to spend time together and combine an English language course with a wonderful family holiday in Ireland. It is a time to bond, improve your English, immerse yourself in a new culture and make friends from all over the world.

We are proud about the fact that many families come back to us year after year or tell their friends about us. While the parent(s), grandparent(s) etc and children aged 18+ participate in our General English Group Course Intensive, children aged 6 to 10 attend the Cool Kids Course and children aged 11 to 17 attend the Keen Teens Course.
