Is the English spoken in Ireland different?
All English-speaking countries speak the language slightly differently, but you needn’t worry about what you’ll learn on your junior English course in Ireland, as the grammar and vocabulary used in Ireland isn’t that different from the English taught in schools across Europe - British English. Sometimes different words are used, but learning a wider vocabulary and acquiring a more global view of English while visiting new countries and experiencing new cultures is an asset for any learner.
