We are a small and personal language school for adults. We are open all year round and specialise in one-to-one tuition and teaching in groups. Our classes are small (max.8 participants)and teaching is student-centred. Participants receive a warm welcome and quickly gain confidence expressing themselves regardless of their level.
Our teaching team has worldwide experience in language teaching. Teachers, office staff and students get to know each other well and always enjoy a chat in and out of school. Students are encouraged to meet with locals, share their storied and experience Irish life by being part of it. We are located just outside Wexford town in a castle building overlooking the river Slaney and the Blackstairs Mountains. With approximately 20.000 inhabitants Wexford is a friendly and lively coastal town in the Southeast, the sunniest part of Ireland.
Our Courses provide participants, whether beginners or advanced, with the opportunity to build on their language skills and gain confidence in a relaxed and creative environment. We develop the student's listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Our language tutors meet on a regular basis to monitor the learner's progress and modify classes accordingly. We use a wide variety of teaching materials, many of them developed 'in-house', which can be adopted to suit each participant. An extensive extracurricular programme complements some of our courses. Staff at our school personally accompany all activities and trips. We provide accompanied afternoon/evening activities on three days per week. From the beginning of May to the end of October we also organise weekly daytrips to places of interest on Weekends, i.e. to Kilkenny The Hook Lighthouse, The Saltee Islands, Glendalough
