It has been fantastic to finally get our students out and about to visit some of the many visitor attractions we have here in Dublin. On Culture Night, our teacher Sophia took a group to visit EPIC the Museum of Irish Emigration nad earleir this week she was joined by one of our other favourite teachers (we love them all equally) Ellen.
\”I think EPIC is one of the best museums we have access to in Ireland,\” says Sophia. \”It provides an interactive, immersive experience of Irish Culture and History. Going there with students from different countries was an amazing experience and it was really both educational and fun.”
\”It\’s great to be able to bring our students out into see the city again,\” says Social Media Officer, Johnny Butler. \”From my own perspective, I\’m just happy to see students enjoying themselves and immersing themselves in the city. That\’s all part of the experience of going abroad to learn a language. Yes, it is all about attaining the language and improving your English Language Skills but it is also about living and learning the ways of different English speaking people so that you can relate to them and accumulate cultural touch points to start conversations going forward. There is a wonder in learning about other cultures that you can only get by immersing yourself in that culture. It\’s great to be able to do it properly again.\”
After visiting EPIC, Sophia was keen to visit more of the city and on Wednesday she took a team of sixteen intrepid explorers off to see the wonders of the National Museum of Ireland.
\”We actually got to see the whole museum,\” she says. \”We had originally just wanted to see the Eileen Gray exhibition but we got to see the whole thing including an exhibit called The Way we Wore about the different kind of clothes that were worn in Ireland down the years. That was all very interesting and we had a nice walk along the Liffey too there and back. We had people from Spain, France, Colombia, Italy and it was great to show them around the city.\”
