« Die Organisatoren waren sehr entgegenkommend, wenn es um den Wechsel in eine andere Gruppe oder sonstiges ging. Die nach Themen organisierten Wochen mit passenden Ausflügen sind zu empfehlen.Das persönliche Feedback der Lehrperson zum Ende jeder Woche war hilfreich. »

Pour un séjour de 3 semaines, on a largement le temps de s'intégrer et de se faire de réels amis. Les cours sont la plupart du temps très intéressant et il y a presque exclusivement des travaux de groupe. Les gens (habitants ou touristes) sont très agréables et gentils.Cependant, on a plus l'impression d'être logés dans un hôtel que chez une famille d'accueil ; en effet, en dehors des repas et des discussions uniquement pour être polis, on n'a pas vraiment de réel contact avec les hôtes. De plus, le programme est parfois un peu trop chargé et on n'a pas beaucoup de temps libre en dehors du temps entre l'activité de l'après-midi et la soirée, et le temps imparti entre cette dernière et le couvre-feu.J'ai malgré cela adoré ce séjour à l'étranger qui m'a permis de découvrir une autre culture, ainsi que de m'améliorer en anglais tout en me faisant des amis. Une multitude de nationalités différentes.Les salles de classe sont très lumineuses mais très chaudes. TRES grande diversité des nationalités, et ambiance de classe géniale. Mère d'accueil assez sympathique mais pas beaucoup de discussions malgré tout. Aucun contact avec le père.Maison assez calme et sympathique malgré le fait qu'il faille AU MOINS 30 minutes de bus pour rallier EC de la maison.Nourriture assez basique, souvent du surgelé, mais jamais en manque. Les sorties étaient variées, mais si certaines étaient intéressantes ou divertissantes, d'autres étaient franchement ennuyantes.Les loisirs étaient assez moyen.

Schwerpunkt lag auf dem Sprechen. Das war gut . Es gab noch weitere internationale Gastschüler in der Gastfamilie. Das war auch interessant.

Host family
Learn how real Dubliners live by staying with a friendly host family in total English immersion! You’ll share a twin bedroom (bed linens and towels included) and bathroom with another student of the same gender. You’ll also have access to free Wi-Fi, laundry facilities and a study desk. Full board is included, which means a continental breakfast at home, a packed lunch and then dinner with your family. Host families are located within a 35-minute bus ride from the school. Please note that this type of accommodation is best suited to independent students who will be comfortable getting to the school on their own using public transport (approximate price for one week: €43).

Lively Dublin is the perfect setting for fun! The school staff will take you into the heart of the city centre, where you can discover sights like Trinity College, St Stephen’s Green and Grafton Street, great for shopping! Activities range from trying your hand at Irish sports like hurling or Gaelic football, to bowling and cultural activities like trips to the Natural History Museum or Dublinia. You’ll go on excursions with the programme’s group leaders and your new friends to seaside towns like Howth or Bray and to Croke Park Stadium, which hosts Gaelic sports teams. In the evenings, you’ll spend time with your host families or head back to the school to partake in Irish dancing, movie nights and more!
