Alberto from Italy tells us why he loved City Language School

Alberto Silva from Milan in Italy came to Dublin early in 2020 to study at our city centre school. Before finishing his course with us, we sat down with him to chat about his time in Ireland.

Why did you choose Dublin?

I chose Dublin because it was perfect for me. It’s not so full of Italians. It’s different from London and it’s cheaper than the USA or Canada. In any case it’s a really beautiful city. It’s cold but it is beautiful. 

Is this your first time abroad on your own?

I just left university. I studied for two years but decided to leave that course and go back and start again in Communications. But I have a bit of time so I decided to come here,to learn to live alone, learn English and make friends in another language and have a new experience.

Can you tell us a little bit about the school?

The school has been great. I love this place. I love my teacher and my classmates. They are fantastic. I’m very lucky. Dublin is full of all sorts of nationalities so it’s very different

But also the guys at reception are great, really polite and they make you feel comfortable. They want to make us comfortable. It is sometimes difficult because it’s hard to speak English all the time but they are great. They are really patient.
