English Language Course – Intermediate

Course Description

We know that the best way to learn a language is in a group setting using authentic and spontaneous speech. That is why our courses are designed to create a safe learning environment that emphasises combining theory and practice. Our course includes excursions to local attractions, allowing you to both practise English and learn more about Irish culture!

By participating in our intermediate-level course, you will improve your oral and written English, as well as your English comprehension skills. By the end of the course, you will be able to speak English in casual and professional settings, such as with friends or at work. We recommend this course if you already understand English well and can manage most daily interactions.

Methodology and specific content are tailored to participants’ profiles, needs and effectiveness.
The course combines theoretical sessions with experiential training focused on participatory and peer learning methods, where participants will practise their skills in group settings. Participants will be provided with practical activities and opportunities to exchange best practices with learners from across Europe.

The schedule also includes cultural activities that will allow participants to explore and experience Irish culture and the vibrant city of Dublin.
