Learning English in Ireland for Families – Parent and Child Courses

Study English in Ireland

We have been offering family courses for more than 10 years. Many families come back to us year after year or tell their friends about us.

While the parent(s), grandparent(s) etc. participate in our General English Group Course Intensive, children aged 6 to 10 attend the Cool Kids Course and children aged 11 to 15 attend the Keen Teens Course.

Cool Kids Course: Our youngest students learn English through a variety of child centred, fun filled activities under the expert supervision of fully qualified teachers. Activities include songs, board games, arts and drama. Elements of the Cambridge Starters exam are included in the course syllabus.

Keen Teens Courses: Our teenage students are being placed into a group according to their levels of English. We usually have two to four different level groups. Keen Teens courses are General English courses focusing on topics relating to this age group. Elements of the Cambrdige exams Ket, Pet and First are included in the course syllabi.

The main focus of both, Cool Kids and Keen Teens courses is on conversation practice. It is important to us that our young learners gain confidence in using the English language and that they enjoy it.

Parents and their children aged 16 or older attend the General English Group Course Intensive.

We offer three optional afternoon activities per week and one daytrip per weekend. Examples for activities are a boat trips around the Saltee Islands,a trip to the oldest operating lighthouse in the world, crab fishing, golf, horse riding, Irish dancing workshop, hurling workshop, kayaking or surfing.  Transport and admission charges apply.
