Our main centre is in Cork, with additional schools in Limerick, Waterford, Killarney and Galway.

The schools are open in July and August for stays of from 2 to 4 weeks. Classes take place each weekday morning from 9.30am – 12.45pm, and an interesting and varied activity programme is offered for the afternoons, including sports activities,tourist visits and cultural activities.These programmes are open to groups (minimum 10 people) but in our centre in Cork we also accept individual bookings on a specific starting date (02 July 2012). These courses are restricted to students aged 13-18 years.

Junior English Course, Cork centre

This course offers a combination of language classes in the morning and an afternoon programme of activities, including sports activities, tourist visits and cultural activities. Students are assessed on the first morning to determine their level of English and assigned to classes where the emphasis is on speaking and understanding.

Accommodation is normally on a full board basis (packed lunch provided for mid-day meal) and you can expect to have another student of a different mother tongue in the family at the same time, in twin room accommodation.

Families provide all meals and will undertake a reasonable amount of personal laundry with the family wash.

Students staying with host families are asked to respect the home and rhythm of life of their hosts, in particular with regard to bedtimes, curfew times and mealtimes.
