Last week, we caught up with Zelcy Joyce Servin De La Vara who told us why City Language School was the perfect choice for her. Joyce arrived in Dublin in March 2020 and is having the time of her life in Dublin.
\”I chose Dublin because it has a mixture of nationalities,\” says the 31-year-old from Mexico. \”You can learn a lot here. Not just English but about yourself. I heard about other people\’s experience here. I have friends who came to Dublin before and they told me it was amazing. It has nightlife but it has a lot of outdoor activities too. So you can have an amazing life in the city but also nature. \”
Studying and Working in Ireland
One of the great advantages of studying in Dublin is of course the fact that students have the ability to work while they study. Joyce has been working in a home for elderly people for the last two years.
\”It\’s perfect for me,\” she says. \”I come here in the afternoon and study English and then I usually work evenings so after classes I go to work.\”
Not only does the school offer her flexibility around her work, it also offers support and comfort too.
City Language School like a Family
\”For me City Language School is more like a family,\” says Joyce. \”I have been in other schools but for me this school is so far the best. The teachers in this school are really friendly. They are so nice and helpful. You can come to them when you have doubts and they are going to help you without a problem.\”
The school\’s location is an added bonus.
In the Heart of Dublin
\”I live near St. Stephen\’s Green so I can walk to school,\” she says. \”It\’s right in the heart of Dublin, in the city centre. Everything is near. So for me when I finish class, I can take a bus right outside the door here and get to my work.\”
For Joyce, Dublin was the perfect choice and she encourages others to come and joun her here.
\”Dublin has so many things that you can love,\” she says. \”It has museums, parks and around every corner you can see history in Dublin. If you walk up the road from the school, you come to Dublin Castle. You are really living among castles. It\’s amazing.\”
