« Yes but .... Just time listening, speaking with different english accents and learning a few vocabulary and grammar. My classmates and teachers came all over the world. I really enjoyed this week despite the fact that it was only a week. It was just a warm-up week to learn English. It was too short. »
School highlights
« I alternated with 5 teachers. Each of them used the interactive whiteboard as a teaching material for courses in an effective way. The mixed class (people who arrived all over the world) and person out of 30 years old. »

La acogida fue excelente. Sin embargo a medida que pasaban los días interactuaban menos con nosotras, a pesar de intentar establecer conversación con ellos. Casi siempre nos dejaban solos en la cocina, cerrándose en el resto de las dependencias de la casa cuando nosotras estábamos en casa.La limpieza de la ducha (bañera) era nula, y la de nuestra habitación era mala.Respecto a las comidas: en el desayuno le indicamos que no podíamos tomar leche, pero tan solo compró un cartón el primer día, el resto de los días no. En muchas ocasiones los alimentos estaban en mal estado, o caducados (barritas de cereales agrias, pan de molde con moho...). Casi nunca tenía café.Las cenas algo mejor (fácil comparado con el desastre de desayuno)Los dos últimos días cenamos fuera por actividades con la escuela de idiomas, le pedimos cambiar la cena por lunch, el cual fue una miseria.La limpieza de la cocina era nefastaEn general la experiencia ha sido excelente, excepto la familia. Es una pena ya que los dublinenses han sido muy amables, y esta familia no lo parece. Ni si quiera bajaron a despedirse el último día, a pesar de haberles comunicado la hora de partida.Sin duda, creo que este tipo de familia no debería de incluirse en esta experiencia ya que merma notablemente la satisfacción global

Je suis satisfait Le professeur pourrait faire en sorte de parler davantage les étudiants que lui même ! C'est ça une pédagogie participative et interactive ! La famille était accueillante et disposée à échanger avec moi pendant les repas.La chambre était correcte sauf le matelas et/ou le sommier qui datait probablement de 25 ans ! :-)La famille était très bien située (15 minutes de l'école / 30 minutes en heures de pointe). L'arrêt de bus était en face de la maison ! :-)Les repas étaient corrects (haricots du jardin ! ) même si la quantité était un peu juste.

Host family
If you want to maximise your language progress, staying with a friendly Irish host family is the perfect way to do it! You’ll essentially become another member of the family, who will welcome you into their home where you’ll have your own private room with either its own bathroom or one in the hallway that you’ll share with the family. You’ll be provided with bed linens and towels, and for meals, you can choose between just breakfast or half board. Your commute time to school will range from 15-45 minutes by public transport.

LIV Dublin comfort residence
If you want to be right in the heart of the action in the centre of Dublin, this is a great option! Enjoy your independence in an en suite single room with a double bed and free bed linen, a wardrobe, desk and chair. Get in a workout at the onsite gym, cook meals in the spacious shared kitchen, play a game of air hockey or foosball with your fellow residents or unwind on the comfy sofas and watch a movie in the TV lounge. You’ll also enjoy the large courtyard with a ping-pong table, free Wi-Fi, laundry facilities and 24/7 security. Your commute time to school will range from 20-30 minutes by public transport.

When it comes to things to do and see, Dublin is an endless source of entertainment! Take advantage of the free activities organised by the school, including walking tours of the city, pub nights where you’ll explore Dublin’s legendary bars and an intro to Gaelic football in the park. Don’t miss going cycling or horseback riding through Phoenix Park, tasting Ireland’s favourite drinks at the Guinness Storehouse and the Jameson Distillery, discovering the ancient Book of Kells in Trinity College and listening to live Irish folk music! If you’re looking to get out of town, don’t miss the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones for gorgeous scenery, or the charming fishing village of Howth, famous for its amazing seafood.
