Reasons to Learn English in Dublin

There are many reasons to come to Dublin and learn English. But we thought we\’d share just a few.

A Warm Welcome

Irish people are renowned for their friendliness. This makes a huge difference for students learning a new language. To be able to speak with a local person on a bus, in a queue or at home with a host family builds confidence and puts newly taught skills into practice. 

We have over 200 carefully selected host families ready to welcome your students.

A Sense Of Belonging

Many international students have come to Ireland and never left. They have opened restaurants, become local celebrities, found jobs and life. Some have even stayed here, met the love of their lives and got married. There is still a sense of community in Ireland and not only will you welcome among your own here, you\’ll also be made to feel part of Ireland too.

Non-EU students looking to study and work in Dublin for up to 2 years, should find out more about our Study and Travel Programme.

A Bridge to Europe

Dublin is just a quick hop to Europe. You can jump on a plane from Dublin Airport at breakfast time and be having your lunch in Paris or Rome. With Brexit, there is now the added bonus of being in the largest English speaking country in the EU which means less hassle and delay getting to other parts of Europe.

Academic Excellence

Ireland has a rich heritage of academic excellence with some world-leading universities and famous graduates. However, did you know that an Undergraduate Degree is required to teach English at a language school?  This makes our teachers some of the highest qualified teachers in the world. 

We are part of City Education Group a leading provider of Language, High School, Vocational and Degree programmes with over 40 years’ experience of ensuring exceptional academic outcomes.

Cultural Heritage

Ireland\’s rich history brings visitors from around the World to visit its attractions, to soak up the culture and to feel the Irish people\’s passion for music and the arts. 

We are pleased to offer English + Music / Sports / Dance to our adult students. Irish Music and Dance prove the most popular choices for English + and for evening recreational activities. 

We also run year-round tailor-made Mini-Stay Programmes for groups. Many of these groups select cultural themes and take advantage of low cost or free attractions to ensure they stay on budget.

Career Opportunities

Ireland is a forward-looking country attracting some of the World’s most successful companies such as Google, PayPal, Facebook, and many more. This makes it a dynamic city and it’s an ideal place to start, change, or improve your career.
