One of the most experienced English schools in Dublin, our partner school was founded over thirty years ago! The course centre is located in the very heart of the city, on the same street as Dublin Castle and just in front of the legendary Temple Bar district. In two prestigious buildings, situated less than a minute's walk away from each other, the school houses 25 classrooms, an internet café, two computer rooms and two rooftop terraces with trees. Internet is accessible free of charge in the two buildings. The classrooms are equipped with modern facilities and a multimedia centre. A library and a room for listening to audio recordings are available for use. In the cafeteria, equipped with a plasma screen TV, you'll be able to eat, drink and chat with the other students from throughout the world.

Beaucoup de beaux paysages et de choses à faire, bonne humeur des irlandais, voyage parfait ! Très bonne école en plein centre de Dublin. Les professeurs sont pédagogues, à notre écoute et très agréables. Il y a de toutes les nationalités, j’étais la seule française dans la classe ce qui m’a permis une immersion totale Très bonne ambiance dans la classe, je me suis rapidement sentie à l’aise autant avec mes camarade qu’avec les professeurs Marie est très aimable, elle discutait toujours beaucoup avec nous pendant les repas et a été une très bonne hôte. Le seul point négatif était qu’il fallait partir une heure plus tôt le matin pour prendre le bus pour l’école à cause notamment du trafic dans le centre ville

Do you think you've made progress?
« J’ai progressé énormément en partie grâce à la famille d’accueil pendant 4 semaines où j’étais obligée de parler uniquement anglais. Mais j’ai surtout progressé grâce aux rencontres que j’ai pu faire à l’école avec des personnes de nationalités différentes avec qui j’ai passé la majeure partie de mon temps. L’école m’a permis également d’avoir plus de vocabulaire »
School highlights
« L’échange avec les élèves de toutes nationalités facilite notamment grâce aux travaux de groupe »
Top tips
« Visiter Dublin et faire un tour aux pubs (le Temple Bar est incontournable évidemment mais j’ai une préférence pour l’ambiance de Oliver St John Gogarty qui se trouve aussi dans le quartier de Temple bar). Visiter le musée Guinness et celui du whisky pour les amateurs. Aller au Trinity College, très belle université à deux pas de l’école. Voir également la cathédrale Christ Church et Saint Patrick. En dehors de Dublin il faut visiter Bray et Howth en bord de mer qui se trouvent en périphérie et on peut y accéder facilement en bus ou en train. À faire aussi : visiter Wicklow, notamment Glendalough et éventuellement Kilkenny avec son château (activité proposée par l’école). Aller aussi jusqu’à Galway pour voir les falaises de Moher »

« Oui, en à peine trois mois j'ai vraiment l'impression d'avoir améliorer mon anglais. Le fait de comuniquer constamment en anglais fait progresser à une vitesse fulgurante. Les cours permettent en plus d'avoir une base de grammaire sur laquelle se baser en cas de doute. »

Irlanda es, en mi opinión, un país ideal para realizar una estancia lingüística. Su situación, su coste no demasiado elevado, el carácter abierto de sus habitantes y la escasa globalización respecto a otros países de habla inglesa como Reino Unido o Estados Unidos lo convierten en un destino perfecto para aprender inglés, y además goza de un espléndido paisaje y patrimonio. La ciudad de Dublín, en la cual he realizado mi estancia, es joven y dinámica, escapa de lo habitual. Quizá, si tuviera que elegir de nuevo una ciudad irlandesa para realizar una estancia lingüística, sería alguna que no estuviese tan masificada, ya que el número de extranjeros era muy alto y puede que esto dificultase la completa inmersión lingüística. Aún así, no obstante, no me arrepiento de mi decisión porque Dublín, más que ser una ciudad para visitarla, es para vivirla. CES es una escuela que consta de diversos aularios concentrados en el centro de Dublín y perfectamente situados. Sin embargo, algunos de ellos deberían mejorar su infraestructura, ya que no todos contienen mesas suficientes. Aún así, estoy muy contenta con la escuela por el trato recibido, por su estructura y funcionamiento, por la calidad de la enseñanza y por las distintas nacionalidades y culturas que se congregan allí. Estoy muy satisfecha tanto con el profesorado como con la dinámica de las clases, pero si que es verdad que, respecto al material del curso, el primer día nos mandaron comprar un libro de texto que posteriormente a penas utilizamos, y la mayoría del material didáctico usado fueron fotocopias que nos entregaba el profesor en clase. Este es un aspecto que se debería revisar, ya que el libro no era precisamente barato. La experiencia de vivir en una casa de famillia ha sido muy satisfactoria. El alojamiento era excelente, y la comida en general muy buena. El contacto con la familia no era demasiado frecuente debido a la jornada laboral de los padres. El barrio era muy agradable y a pesar de situarse en la periferia, estaba bien comunicado con el centro de la ciudad mediante las líneas del autobús. Personalmente creo que la opción de la casa de familia es mejor que la de la residencia. Aunque es imposible participar en todas las actividades que propone la escuela, la oferta era muy variada, con más de una actividad diaria, y con excursiones todos los fines de semana, sábado y domingo, que nos permitieron descubrir muchos de los sitios emblemáticos tanto de Dublín como de Irlanda; eso sí, a la velocidad del rayo. Muy satisfecha con el servicio de ESL, ya que te brinda toda la información necesaria pero a la vez te deja ser independiente y no te trata como a un niño de preescolar en su primera excursión. Solo actúa como intermediaria entre la escuela y tú. Para repetir.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Vine por mejorar mi nivel con la expresión oral, y en parte, creo que lo he conseguido. Viajar al país donde se habla la lengua que quieres aprender es, en mi opinión, la mejor manera de interiorizarla, y ese ha sido mi caso. Aún así, se debe seguir repasando todo lo aprendido una vez finalizada la estancia. »

CES, Dublin
Duration: 12 weeks

I chose Dublin because I had visited the city one weekend in the past and I loved it. And it’s quite different from usual destinations such as London or Brighton. I really like the classes. There are only 12 people per class, which is great as it allows working in groups. Teachers are great and encourage communication. At school, there aren’t many French speakers: a big plus, if you want to learn English! The school staff is very nice, relaxed and helpful. My flat is very close to the school; only a 10-minute walk! It’s perfect to go to school in the morning and to go out in the evening! Dubliners are super open, welcoming and warm; speaking with them and making new friends is very easy. And the atmosphere in pubs is the best! Dublin is the perfect destination to learn English and live an exceptional experience!

CES, Dublin
Duration: 4 weeks

When I decided to go on a language stay abroad, I had quite a few questions… lots of them, as a matter of fact! ESL answered all my queries and helped me make the best decision. The result couldn’t have been better: I had an incredible month and was hosted by a wonderful Irish family who treated me like one of their own. My experience at CES was also excellent, as I probably learnt more English than I had in the previous 2 years studying it in Spain. The teachers were very professional and I made good friends from all around the worlds. Together, we enjoyed the beautiful Irish landscapes, as well as Dublin’s amazing nightlife, with live music on every corner and in every pub at any moment of they day. At the pub, you can also enjoy traditional meals and the country’s favourite beverage, beer, while you discover Irish culture, traditions and – especially – its people… some of the nicest and friendliest people I’ve met in Europe. A trip I will repeat, without a doubt. I have fallen in love with Ireland.
