We are conveniently located in the heart of Dublin on Dame Street, giving you easy access to the whole city of Dublin as well as bus and tram lines for you to get around.

Guiding Principles

At City Language School our guiding principles are founded on the commitment to providing the best learning experience possible, and a recognition that education is a transformative right. We believe that the most effective learning takes place in an authentic, real-world context and we are committed to providing courses that not only increase linguistic proficiency but develop skills and competences which can be readily applied to interactions in the real world as well as for language learning. Our programmes are designed to maximise learner outcomes by helping to provide learners with the tools that are necessary in an ever-changing world.

21st Century Skills

Guided by the CEFR, which promotes the language learner’s autonomy in the real world, our curricula and syllabi aim to develop competences in 21st century skills. Collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and developing digital competency are key to our course design. Teachers make use of the latest innovative technology and educational apps to deliver dynamic and engaging lessons which challenge the learner to build skills that they will bring forward into their academic, professional, and social lives.
