Pese a tener una ubicación hay casas que se encuentran muy lejos de la academia. Una fantástica familia, siempre comunicativa y atenta. Pese a no ir incluido en el precio me daba la comida todos los días e incluso me llevaba algún día en coche.

Solo visité Dublín y algún pueblo de los alrededores, son todos bastante bonitos y con encanto, y puedes encontrar fácilmente cosas que hacer En las clases no da tiempo a aprender suficiente pero conoces mucha gente con la que practicar tu inglés.Con respecto a la diversidad de nacionalidades, al ser Irlanda un país europeo bastante conocido, me encontré con bastantes españoles e italianos, en eso no había mucha variedad Estuve solo dos semanas por lo que no hubo tiempo de aumentar mi nivel Tuve mucha suerte con la familia, fue muy agradable y muy flexible con los horarios, las comidas. Se podía hablar perfectamente con ellos, y te ofrecían su ayuda en todo. Experiencia genial.

Hatte Glück in eine sehr liebenswürdige und herzliche Familie zu wohnen ! Anzahl der Schüler variierte, manchmal waren es zu viele in einem Raum Die Lehrer haben sich sehr fest Mühe verständlich und klar zu unterrichten Die Familie ist beispiellos gastfreundlich, hilfsbereit und herzlich, habe mich von 1.

Die Mitarbeiter waren hilfsbereit in allen Lebenslagen und die Schule war sehr gepflegt, wobei der Hausmeister ständig für frische Farben und Spaß sorgte Der kleine, ruhige Ort mit ländlicher Umgebung war genau das Richtige für mich. Irland ist immer eine Reise wert ! Finde es toll das mit Büchern gearbeitet wird, die der Reihe nach durchgearbeitet werden. Manchmal waren es mir zu wenig Übungen. Stimmung in der A2 Klasse war super. In A2plus störten einige Schüler durch SMS und eine andere die nur kam wann es ihr passte noch durch ständiges hinaus und herein zum telefonieren. In B1 störten einige durch zu spät kommen und ständiges Unterhalten, sogar Spanisch. Carmel war die beste Gastgeberin die ich je hatte.

ATC Language & Travel, Bray
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.

ATC Language & Travel, Bray
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!

ATC Language & Travel, Bray
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…

Host family
Most of the families carefully selected by our partner school live only a short distance from the school, and students can reach the course centre on foot. These families offer accommodation in single or double rooms with half-board during the week and full board at weekends.

Residence (from 18 years)
The residence is located 700 metres from the course centre and is particularly suitable for more independent students. Staying in a single or double room, you'll have a private bathroom and will share the lounges and equipped kitchens (with a TV and DVD-player) with the other residents. You'll have free Wi-Fi throughout the building, free bed linen and towels and washing machines and dryers.

Shared apartment (from 18 years)
Right beside the school, there are apartments where you will be able to stay in a single or double room, sharing with other international students. Bathrooms, a lounge with a television and DVD player and an equipped kitchen are to be shared. Washing machines and dryers are available, towels and bedlinen are provided, and you will be able to access Internet everywhere you are.

Our partner school organises excursions and outings at an extra charge in order to favour the meeting of students and to allow you to discover the various places of interest in Bray and in the surrounding areas. A guided town visit, outings to the theatre, cinema, discos and pubs without forgetting the famous Guinness brewery offer so many possibilities to speak English in complete relaxation! Sports have an important place and the school will propose to you to go horseriding, to play golf, to go fishing, to go sailing, to go for walks or even to go on full-day excursions. You will also be able to spend quiet afternoons watching a DVD in the student lounge. Choose your activity, the school will be happy to organise your outing!
