Description

CES English Language Centre organises a language camp for students in Dublin. The school is located on the same street as Dublin Castle, Trinity College and Christchurch Cathedral. The famous National Gallery of Ireland, the Oscar Wilde House Museum and the Dublin Needle are within walking distance, as is wonderful Stevens Green Park.

The centre is well equipped with 33 classrooms, student lounges and a computer room. There is a rooftop summer garden and a CES café. Classes with native speakers are combined with a sports programme, excursions and creative workshops. All of this is also in English so you will never be interrupted in your studies. Walks and excursions provide a better insight into Irish culture and values. For instance, you can learn about traditional fishing skills in Howth Village and find the Irish landscape wonder of Powercourt Gardens. Excursions to the National Gallery or History Museum are included. In the evenings they hold games, disco and Irish music.

Children stay with host families. All host families live in the suburbs of Dublin, 30-40 minutes away from the city centre by train. The rooms are for two or three people and have shared facilities. Meals are provided three times a day.

    ¡Gran experiencia!

    La mejor escuela en Dublín, realmente me encanta el ambiente de la escuela, los profesores brindan apoyo todo el tiempo y los encontré amigables y apasionados por su trabajo. La escuela tiene muchas actividades que ayudan al desarrollo de cada estudiante. El curso fue muy útil. Mejoré mucho mi nivel de inglés. Además diría que es un lugar donde hice muchos amigos y conocí al amor de mi vida. ¡Gran experiencia! El único inconveniente es que hay que revisar los niveles de inglés porque bajo mi punto de vista están mal.

    This was my first trip abroad and my first time at a language camp, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I really enjoyed my trip to Ireland. I remember the activities (especially discos) and very cool staff. Very good teachers and interesting lessons! In the future, I would like to change lunches: we had tasteless sandwiches every day. But for breakfast and dinner we were well fed. Thanks to the group leader Olya for the trip!

    That was great!

    Just a few days ago, we returned with our class from a trip to Dublin. We visited a wonderful country with the whole class. We managed not only to practice English, as we have a class of lyceum with profound study of the language, but also to get acquainted with the children who live in Ireland. This is a great experience and a lot of positive emotions for the rest of my life. Thank you for this opportunity to Travel Class. Everything was well-organized, there were no emergencies. The cost was not expensive. We will definitely plan our future trips only through you.

    Ireland is a country you want to return to again and again.

    Off-season English School CES Dublin — language school in Ireland

    Ireland is a country you want to return to again and again. And our group is no exception. Absolutely everyone in our group would like to come back to Ireland together with the group/parents or visit this country by themselves. I won't hide that Ireland captivated me from the first visit and has a special place in my heart. Everyone has their own reasons to fall irrevocably in love with this emerald island. Here are just a few of them: landscapes of incredible beauty, full immersion into the English-speaking environment, cheerful and open-minded locals, rich cultural and historical heritage, delicious cheese, endless green fields and inevitable feeling of harmony and inner peace.
    So if you're still thinking about where to go on holiday and improve your English then look no further than Ireland. You will not be disappointed, I guarantee it!

    Once you have decided on a destination country, the next step is to choose a school. Our group had summer school at the Centre of English Studies (CES), one of the best language schools where I worked as a group leader. The children studied in the Mercy College building and lived with host families within walking distance of the school. It took 30 minutes to get from the school to downtown on the regular buses. The placement area is quiet, peaceful, and safe - a Dublin bedroom community with neat gingerbread houses and perfectly mowed lawns. This was my first experience staying with host families in all eight trips with Jey Study groups; before that, we stayed with kids at a college/university campus. And I can say with confidence that homestay is the best thing you can choose for a complete language immersion experience. If on campus the children have an opportunity to communicate only with Russian speaking kids (for some reason or other), then in a host family children will not only have to (need is the best motivation) constantly communicate with native speakers, but they will also see the country from a non-tourist side: they will see with their own eyes how the Irish live, what they do in their free time, what interests them, how they live and how they communicate with each other. I think this is the best way to really get to know the country you are visiting.
    The program of CES is very rich, and every day of stay is scheduled, so that the students of this school have no time to be bored. Every morning except Saturday and Sunday there is a 4-hour English class at their level, and then a long lunch break, during which they share impressions about the wonderful lessons and the charismatic teachers. In the afternoon there are a variety of activities: sports, music, art & craft, museum visits, trips to nearby coastal towns or to downtown Dublin for shopping - every day something new. After a full family dinner the children practise their English at evening activities (disco, bowling, quizzes, fish&chips). At the weekend school provides two full-day excursions on Saturdays (we had a trip to the beautiful county of Wicklow and a visit to Belfast) and two free Sundays, which we can plan at our discretion: book extra full-day excursions or just relax and enjoy the local rhythm of life.
    I enjoyed my trip to CES Dublin so much that I myself plan to return to the school to prepare for my international certification exam (the CES adult center is open year round). So I am thrilled myself and I recommend you ;)
