Les irlandais sont des gens très accueillants Salle de classe un peu petite. Le nombre d'élève dans la classe est parfois trop nombreux. Les profs sont à l'écoute et très professionnel. Bernie est très accueillante. Elle prend du temps pour échanger, est très intéressante et connaît beaucoup de choses sur son pays.

Duration: 3 weeks

I am studying in this school for five weeks now, and stay here until December. I like the teaching methods of the school. Every day we have two hours of grammar and two hours of speaking, and this five days a week and we are more or less fourteen in a class. The school also organizes special courses for exams like the First, the Advence, and you have the possibility to do intenssif lesson or buisness lesson in the afternoon. I think this is a wonderful experience because we meet many people from different environment who opens our minds. I live in a host family which is, I think, the best of Bray ☺. I live with a Lady who takes care of me very well, she is really good. I also think that the Irish are particuliary friendly, so take advantage of this to discover a new country that is beautiful and to study.

ATC Language & Travel, Bray
Duration: 13 weeks

I subscribed for a 13-week course at ATC in Bray and half of my stay has already passed! I chose Bray because I wanted to go to Ireland without going to a big city like Dublin. I started with an intensive course and then I did the preparation course for the IELTS exam, which I need for my studies. I am very happy with the school and the residence, where I stay in a single room with private bathroom. After class, I stay at school a bit longer to use all the available tools to prepare my exam. At weekends, I like to do excursions in the nature, for example to the Cliffs of Moher. All in all, it’s a very successful trip!

ATC Language & Travel, Bray
Duration: 3 weeks

I am staying in Bray, a small town close to Dublin. My host family is very nice: every day, when I come back from school, I tell them about my day, which helps me improving my English even more. Teachers and lessons are pretty easy to understand and follow. Courses are diversified; it’s not like in France, where you have a weekly or daily theme. For example, if they see that we are talking about Irish weather, they will ask us to talk about the weather in our home countries. Classes include a maximum of 15 people, which is perfect because we can repeat things that are not clear or go faster and do a game at the end of the lesson. In my host family, I stay in a single room with TV and DVD player, so I can watch TV programmes in English…

Our partner school organises excursions and outings at an extra charge in order to favour the meeting of students and to allow you to discover the various places of interest in Bray and in the surrounding areas. A guided town visit, outings to the theatre, cinema, discos and pubs without forgetting the famous Guinness brewery offer so many possibilities to speak English in complete relaxation! Sports have an important place and the school will propose to you to go horseriding, to play golf, to go fishing, to go sailing, to go for walks or even to go on full-day excursions. You will also be able to spend quiet afternoons watching a DVD in the student lounge. Choose your activity, the school will be happy to organise your outing!
