    Excursions to the city were amazing, all without exception!

    I liked everything very much! Ireland is a wonderful country, and I do not regret that I went there, and not, for example, to the very same England. The campus is very big and beautiful! The rooms are very good, very comfortable bed, everything is as it should be, but the only thing is that the shower did not always work. Sometimes the cold water just turned off and boiling water came out. And so everything is very good. The training is also good, but sometimes it was boring. All teachers are very good and understanding. Nobody shouts if you don't understand something. It's hard to say about extracurricular activities. In most cases, they were interesting, such as magic tricks, Irish dancing, juggling, movies and more. Excursions to the city were amazing, all without exception. I think the price really matches the quality.

    The most memorable moment was the very first day when we visited Phoenix Park

    Summer English School Emerald Dublin Marino College — summer school in Ireland

    In general, I liked the school very much.
    Excellent living conditions: individual accommodation with private showers, a common spacious and bright kitchen in a block of 4 rooms.
    Good 3 meals a day during the week in the canteen - for lunch and dinner there is always a choice of 3 options (2 meat options and a vegetarian option), there are always fresh vegetables and fruit, hot soup. For the first time, I saw that there is a person assigned to coordinate the line in the dining room who makes sure there are no delays and the line moves at a brisk pace. And it does significantly reduce the waiting time (the camp is big, long line like everywhere else).
    On weekends we were given lunches to take away - not a bad option, but some variety could have been added.
    The training is also organized at a high level. At the beginning of the first week the kids had to write a test to determine their language level and were divided into groups according to their results and age. The impressions of the lessons were positive.
    The lessons were held in the morning, and in the afternoon there were either field trips or campus activities. On the weekends there were field trips for the whole day. Very memorable was the very first day when we visited Phoenix Park (the largest park in Dublin) and saw deer living there and even managed to pet them).
    Separately, I want to note that visiting Ireland is a unique experience. Ireland is a country with a rich culture and history, very beautiful nature.

    Definitely worth it! And it's worth coming back again

    Summer English School Emerald Dublin Marino College — summer school in Ireland

    Ireland is a wonderful country. Dublin is a beautiful city. The Marino area (in north Dublin) is beautiful, historic, green. Everywhere - literally everywhere - parks, hidden architectural gems, for example, Casino Marino - a stone's throw from school. It will be interesting to learn about the meaning of the word casino - a surprise awaits. It is easy to get to the center: without changing from the school's door by bus with the memorable number 123:). The school is the kind of school where you want to learn. The conditions are great. The staff is helpful, friendly, ready to help both in school matters, as well as in what you have planned to do your group additionally. The school has a great residence, but we chose to stay with families - and we didn't miss out. The hosts are warm, welcoming people. They treat us like human beings. It is a pity that accommodation is for two people only - it would be desirable to keep native speech to a minimum. I would like to note the lunches in the canteen at school: only freshly cooked food, good portions, supplement is welcomed in every way. Of the things that I would like to improve - after school lessons. This year they were not diverse, at times it was difficult for the young staff to cope with teenagers - they lacked organizational experience. Nevertheless, is it worth going here? Definitely worth it! And it is worth coming back again.
