My experience at Atlantic Language in Galway was short (3 weeks) but intense. This was my third immersion experience in Anglo-Saxon territory, as I had been to Toronto and Edinburgh, but it was the best one. As to the teachers, I only have pleasant memories. Atlantic is like a big family!
I fell in love with Galway immediately. I had already been there for a short visit a few years ago, but, even though it may sound cliché, its people are lovely and extremely friendly, which is essential in order to feel welcome. Regarding its geographical location, it allows to explore lots of unforgettable territories (Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, Kylemore Abbey in Connemara or Sligo, up north). I was quite busy on the weekends!
Galway is like an everlasting music festival: street musicians, buskers… everywhere! I remember the song that they play before closing the pubs, “Galway girl”, a classic for locals. I want to return!
