« A Cork : se rendre au pub ‘An Spailpin Fanach’ le mercredi à 19h, car un ‘language exchange’ a lieu pour toute personne qui souhaite parler anglais et/ou une autre langue. L’occasion de pratiquer le temps d’une soirée et de faire des rencontres ! »

Irland ist wunderschön und in Cork ist viel geboten. Ich war nicht ganz zufrieden mit der Schule. Zuerst wurde ich in das falsche Level eingeteilt. Außerdem war ich nicht zufrieden mit dem Intensivkurs. Hier waren am Nachmittag alle Level in einer Klasse gemischt und ich habe überhaupt nichts gelernt. Daher war das reine Geld- und Zeitverschwendung für mich. Außerdem ist der Großteil der Schüler aus Brasilien. Die Lehrer sind sehr, sehr gut!!!

I feel my English has improved because I can practise it everyday with friends, teachers and the family. What I mostly like about Ireland is the people, the green hills, the beautiful beaches, the Irish accent and of course the pubs!

Duration: 2 weeks

People are friendly and welcoming. In the evening, in the pubs, there is a good atmosphere. Around Cork, the landscapes are magnificent. The school is really professional and helpful if we have some request or needs. The numbers of students is suited to the rooms and the quality of classes is excellent. Their methods are different than in France. The lessons captivated me from the beginning to the end. I was hosted by a very good family. They speak slowly especially for me. The food was excellent. I am very happy to be here, I regret staying only two weeks. I improved my English very quickly and I need to progress again.

I really enjoy my holiday. Cork is a beautiful and lovely city. There are a lot of places where you can meet people and have fun. The C.L.C is a good school with very kind and interesting teachers. It seems easier to learn English with them. My English isn’t as good as I want but I learnt a lot of important things. I think it’s a good idea to have test all weeks. The apartment in Coppinger court is spacious and comfortable. It was close to the school, it’s a good point as well. Now, I’m going to have my work experience. So I hope it will be as interesting as the school. I want to say: thank you for all school staff: Joelle, Kate, Caitriona and all teachers, Laura and Camille.

Host family
Staying with a host family is an excellent way of practising the language daily in a warm and motivating atmosphere. The selected families provide you with a single room and half-board during the week and full board at weekends. They generally live in residential areas of the city, close to public transport, around 30-40 minutes from the school. In addition, students who choose to stay with a host family benefit from a free airport transfer on arrival (between 9 a.m. and 10.30 p.m.).

The school offers a range of activities that allow you to immerse yourself in the Irish culture: guided tours of Cork, outings to the theatre or to traditional music concerts, etc. The school also organises half-day, full-day and occasionally even weekend excursions for you to discover the treasures of the region or make a flying visit to Dublin.
