Es gab 3 Trips die man unternehmen konnte, welche wirklich gut waren. Unter der Woche ist das Angebot der Schule spärlich. Ich habe die Zeit in Irland sehr genossen. Es gab einige Dinge, wie zumBeispiel der Vorbereitungskurs, die Gastfamilie oder der Rückflug die nicht so toll waren aber abgesehen davon war ich sehr zufrieden.

-Einige Klassenräume haben kein Fenster-Zwischenzeitlich waren die Räume zu klein bei der großen Anzahl Schüler Ich hätte mir besonders zu Beginn ein wenig mehr Programm gewünscht, um noch schneller in Kontakt mit den Anderen zu gelangen.

Sarah Assier
Atlantic Language, Galway
Duration: 12 weeks

I spent three weeks at the Atlantic school in Galway, Ireland. The school is very well located and parts of the premises have been recently refurbished, which allows you to work in good conditions. There is a big hallway with a cafeteria and a terrace to relax during the break!

The teachers were very accessible and we worked on our oral, written and listening skills. That was great because there was always a good dynamics during the classes! Depending on the subjects dealt with, everyone explained the specificities of their countries! That was greatly enriching.

As far as the accommodation was concerned, my host family was great!! I will never forget the three months I spent at their place! I had my super comfortable room and I had all my meals with them in the evening, as for lunch I ate at the school. There was a good atmosphere at home and I quickly felt at ease. I was very warmly welcomed (with a good tea of course!) and I shed a few tears when I left! Today, I am still in contact with them and I am planning to go back to Ireland to settle there!

I recommend traveling with ESL because I was very well assisted during my project and when I called several times to have information, I was always well guided and advised!

Go and live an unforgettable experience in Ireland without any further delay!

The school in Galway is perfectly located, only 5 minutes away from the town centre. I loved the large terrace with a sea view… Truly incredible! It's a great meeting point for friends and teachers to discuss the previous evening's activities and those of the next evening. In Galway, it's impossible to get bored, there's dancing, music and all these Celtic legends to listen to… You can only be happy here!

Duración: 3 week

I spent 3 amazing weeks in Galway, at the Atlantic Language School. I lived with a really nice host family and my neighbours were other students from the same school, so it was nice to go to school with them in the morning! The school was great! I made so many new friends in such a short time, and the staff was very warm and helpful – both at reception and in the cafeteria. Teachers were really good as well. It’s nice to have different ones in the morning and in the afternoon, as it gives the opportunity to experience different learning methods. They were all very good at teaching English while making us discover the Irish culture.

The activity programme was extremely good; I visited the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher, hiked on the Connemara, discovered the hurling game and the pub nights… As for Galway itself, it’s a pretty little city with an amazing atmosphere. No doubts about it: if you want to learn English and live a wonderful experience, choose Galway and the Atlantic School! Ireland is a beautiful country with smiley and lovely people that will (almost) make you forget about the rain! I take this opportunity to thank ESL for helping me in the organization of this fantastic language stay and for suggesting Galway. I will cherish these memories forever!
