È stata un'esperienza incredibile. Ho migliorato il mio inglese, ho conosciuto l'Irlanda ed in particolare Dublino. Inoltre ho conosciuto persone provenienti da paesi differenti con culture diverse. In più ho anche visitato vari luoghi di Dublino: è una città molto bella e piena di cultura. La consiglio assolutamente a chiunque voglia fare un soggiorno linguistico. È un'ottima scuola. I docenti sono simpatici e competenti e le lezioni sono sempre interessanti e differenti. Mi sento molto fortunato nell'aver trovato questa famiglia ospitante che mi ha trattato come se fossi un membro della famiglia ed io mi sono sentito per tutto il tempo come se fossi a casa mia.In caso di bisogno ho sempre potuto parlare con loro e chiedere aiuto. Inoltre a cena ho sempre potuto parlare con loro di qualsiasi argomento.Il cibo che preparavano è sempre stato buono e salutare.In casa ho sempre avuto i miei spazi quando ne avevo bisogno.Consiglierei questa famiglia ospitante a chiunque voglia fare un soggiorno linguistico a Dublino. Ho apprezzato molto che la scuola offrisse delle attività per il tempo libero. In questo modo ho potuto visitare vari luoghi di Dublino e non solo.Inoltre il personale è sempre stato disponibile in caso di necessità.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Si, penso di aver fatto dei progressi soprattutto nella lingua inglese parlata. Me lo ha anche confermato la famiglia ospitante uno degli ultimi giorni. Prima l'inglese lo parlavo ma non così bene, dato che non ero mai stato prima in paese di lingua inglese in cui ero quindi obbligato ad esprimermi in inglese. »
School highlights
« I punti positivi della scuola sono stati:- I docenti sempre simpatici ed attenti alle necessità degli allievi;- Le lezioni sempre interessanti e variegate;- Le attività extra organizzate dalla scuola nel tempo libero sempre interessanti e stimolanti;- Il personale della scuola sempre disponibile in caso di bisogno. »
Top tips
« Cose da non perdere:- Cliffs of Moher- Phoenix Park- Kilmainham Gaol (la vecchia prigione di Dublino)- Temple Bar (il quartiere dei pub e dei ristoranti)- Guiness Storehouse e Jameson Distillery- Howth (un villaggio di pescatori a nord di Dublino)- La camminata tra Bray e Greystones (sono circa 7 km)- EPIC Museum (museo sull'emigrazione irlandese, molto tecnologico e moderno)- Irish Rock and Roll Museum »

Testimonials

Florence
Florence
International House, Dublin
Duration: 6 months

For my law studies, I had to carry out an internship and I got even more from it by doing it abroad. I started with a FCE preparation course. During the course, I had interviews arranged with lawyers’ practices looking for interns. The first practice was fine and I spent three beneficial months there, which allowed me to practice my English and enter the working world.
