Study alongside other students in their thirties at our fantastic partner school just steps from the heart of Dublin! The 30+ programme was especially designed so that students over age 30 with similar interests and life experience could come together in an English class that facilitates participation and lively discussion. The building boasts 4 modern and bright classrooms on a separate floor just for 30+ students, plus a lounge, study area, library and free Wi-Fi. There’s a café right next door where you can get your tea or coffee fix, or bring your breakfast or lunch and dine in the student lounge with your peers. When class is over, you can stroll up to St Stephen’s Green, shop along Grafton Street or go for a pint in Temple Bar!

La acogida fue excelente. Sin embargo a medida que pasaban los días interactuaban menos con nosotras, a pesar de intentar establecer conversación con ellos. Casi siempre nos dejaban solos en la cocina, cerrándose en el resto de las dependencias de la casa cuando nosotras estábamos en casa.La limpieza de la ducha (bañera) era nula, y la de nuestra habitación era mala.Respecto a las comidas: en el desayuno le indicamos que no podíamos tomar leche, pero tan solo compró un cartón el primer día, el resto de los días no. En muchas ocasiones los alimentos estaban en mal estado, o caducados (barritas de cereales agrias, pan de molde con moho...). Casi nunca tenía café.Las cenas algo mejor (fácil comparado con el desastre de desayuno)Los dos últimos días cenamos fuera por actividades con la escuela de idiomas, le pedimos cambiar la cena por lunch, el cual fue una miseria.La limpieza de la cocina era nefastaEn general la experiencia ha sido excelente, excepto la familia. Es una pena ya que los dublinenses han sido muy amables, y esta familia no lo parece. Ni si quiera bajaron a despedirse el último día, a pesar de haberles comunicado la hora de partida.Sin duda, creo que este tipo de familia no debería de incluirse en esta experiencia ya que merma notablemente la satisfacción global

Je suis satisfait Le professeur pourrait faire en sorte de parler davantage les étudiants que lui même ! C'est ça une pédagogie participative et interactive ! La famille était accueillante et disposée à échanger avec moi pendant les repas.La chambre était correcte sauf le matelas et/ou le sommier qui datait probablement de 25 ans ! :-)La famille était très bien située (15 minutes de l'école / 30 minutes en heures de pointe). L'arrêt de bus était en face de la maison ! :-)Les repas étaient corrects (haricots du jardin ! ) même si la quantité était un peu juste.

Intentar no poner alumnos de la misma nacionalidad en clase. Se trabaja mucho en grupos y en mi clase a veces éramos 4-5 españoles El desayuno para estudiantes siempre croasan ( no había opción de cambiar así que tuve que pagarme un desayuno más saludable)la cocina compartida estaba siempre sucia y las basuras hasta arribaLo peor fueron las fiestas de estudiantes hasta pasadas las 12 de la noche casi todos los días y el poco caso que me hizo el recepcionista cuando me quejé. tuve una estancia de 1 semana sin poder descansar debido al poco respeto y falta de personal que asegure el cumplimiento de las normas y velar por el descanso de los alojados

Sí, con restricciones.Su pregunta no permite matices...La ubicación, en la confluencia de dos vías importantes, implica un nivel de ruidos q dificulta el trabajo del profe, la audición, etc; si se cerraban las ventanas el calor era molesto... Mi nivel de inglés no me permite comunicarme más y mejor El personal bastante atentos y amables La aglomeración de estudiantes en el salón de la entrada, en ciertas horas, junto al hecho de existir un futbolín y la bulla correspondiente de los alumnos q jugaban resultaba molesto
