At The Slaney Language Centre we pride ourselves on our low student-tutor ratio. The maximum number of students in any one level group is only eight throughout the year and ten in July and August. There is maximum of twelve students per group for the Keen Teens and Cool Kids courses.
Due to our small class sizes each student can participate actively in class and progress quickly.
RELAXED, FRIENDLY AND ENCOURAGING ENVIRONMENT
Slaney Language Centre students quickly gain confidence using the English language in a relaxed, friendly and encouraging environment. Language students receive a warm welcome at the Slaney Language Centre and quickly gain confidence expressing themselves regardless of their level. Many students return to our language school year after year.
FULL LEARNER PROTECTION
The Slaney Language Centre is a member school of the language school association MEI (Marketing English in Ireland). MEI member schools espouse Learner Protection, thereby being able to guarantee to students that they will be able to complete all language courses for which they are enrolled.
In the event of an MEI member school going unexpectedly out of business, the other schools will accept students free of charge whose course of tuition in the closed school has not yet expired.
Our fully qualified and experienced native speaking English language teachers are motivated, enthusiastic and interested in each student’s progress. They meet regularly to monitor and discuss students’ progree and take part in teacher training courses in order to keep up to date with the latest developments in English language teaching.
