Mein Sprachaufenthalt war eine wundervolle und auch wertvolle Erfahrung! Ich konnte von den guten Lehrern profitieren und habe jede Minute genossen. Leider ist die Zeit viel zu schnell vorbei geflogen. Zu meinem Glück hatte es keine Schweizer und nicht viele Deutsche als ich dort war, so wurde ich nie verleitet Deutsch zu sprechen! „Leider“ hat es aber sehr viele Italiener und Brasilianer also falls ihr von diesen Ländern kommt empfehle ich eine andere Destination damit ihr mehr profitieren könnt! Matratzen waren durchgelegen in meinem Zimmer und das Bad war nicht richtig sauber als ich angekommen bin. Viele Sachen waren kaput (schubladen, obere Waschmaschine, Ofen (der zweiten Küche)An Sauberkeit und reparieren sollte gearbeitet werden, ansonsten top! Auch die Lage war top!

Es war ein wirklich tolles Erlabnis und ich habe nichts auszusetzen ☺️ Wir hatten einen super mix der Nationalitäten und wahnsinnig gute Lehrerinnen. Es war auch sehr gut, dass nur eine weitere Schweizerin mit mir in der Klasse war. Eine sehr freundliche und herzliche Familie. Ich habe mich von anfang an willkommen gefühlt. Vorallem die Gastmutter hat mir bei allem geholfen, auch bei kleinigkeiten. Ich habe mich wirklich sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt und auch sehr wohl! Vielen Dank für diesen tollen Aufenthalt!

Do you think you've made progress?
« Auf jeden Fall. Ich habe am schluss meines aufenthaltes das First gemacht, zum zweiten Mal und ich habe mich wirklich sicher gefühlt. Ich habe viel neues dazu gelernt, vorallem in Bereichen wie Sprechen und Verstehen. »
School highlights
« Einen wirklich grossen plus Punkt ist, dass es in der Schule viele verschiedene Nationalitäten giebt und (zum Glück) sehr wenig Schweizer, im vergleich zu anderen Sprachschulen, die ich besucht habe. Ausserdem waren die Lehrer sehr gut und die Stimmung absolut fantastisch. Der Standort der Schule ist natürlich auch sehr cool! »

Do you think you've made progress?
« Yes, I do. Because in my first week I didn’t speak in English and for me it was very difficult to understand people but in my third and last week I could speak and understand all people. »

Duration: 3 weeks

I am studying in this school for five weeks now, and stay here until December. I like the teaching methods of the school. Every day we have two hours of grammar and two hours of speaking, and this five days a week and we are more or less fourteen in a class. The school also organizes special courses for exams like the First, the Advence, and you have the possibility to do intenssif lesson or buisness lesson in the afternoon. I think this is a wonderful experience because we meet many people from different environment who opens our minds. I live in a host family which is, I think, the best of Bray ☺. I live with a Lady who takes care of me very well, she is really good. I also think that the Irish are particuliary friendly, so take advantage of this to discover a new country that is beautiful and to study.

Duration: 13 weeks

I subscribed for a 13-week course at ATC in Bray and half of my stay has already passed! I chose Bray because I wanted to go to Ireland without going to a big city like Dublin. I started with an intensive course and then I did the preparation course for the IELTS exam, which I need for my studies. I am very happy with the school and the residence, where I stay in a single room with private bathroom. After class, I stay at school a bit longer to use all the available tools to prepare my exam. At weekends, I like to do excursions in the nature, for example to the Cliffs of Moher. All in all, it’s a very successful trip!

Duration: 3 weeks

I am staying in Bray, a small town close to Dublin. My host family is very nice: every day, when I come back from school, I tell them about my day, which helps me improving my English even more. Teachers and lessons are pretty easy to understand and follow. Courses are diversified; it’s not like in France, where you have a weekly or daily theme. For example, if they see that we are talking about Irish weather, they will ask us to talk about the weather in our home countries. Classes include a maximum of 15 people, which is perfect because we can repeat things that are not clear or go faster and do a game at the end of the lesson. In my host family, I stay in a single room with TV and DVD player, so I can watch TV programmes in English…
