Last summer, I did a 12-week course in Bray. It was my first experience abroad and I have to admit that I was very nervous until the moment I landed in Bray, about 40 minutes’ from Dublin. Then, everything was amazing. I only needed a few weeks to adapt to the new place. The ATC school, a few meters away from my residence, is the most famous one in this field. Programmes are very good! We worked on all the different language skills: reading, speaking, writing and, of course, grammar. I liked the fact that we were being tested every week; in my case, this allowed me to go to a new level in 6 weeks – this was a big challenge for me – and I finally understood what learning English really means.

The residence was much better than what I expected; there was a nice atmosphere, but I could have my own privacy. It was very close to all the best attractions in Bray. It was really cool: I met fabulous people! I will go back in a few months and I hope my stay will be as good as the first one!

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…

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!

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.
