Learn English Testimonials

From Students

Our students know us best! See how much some of them enjoyed their time with us, and learning with us:

‘My name is Marina. I am 25 and I am from Italy. I was working as an au pair in a village near Carlow and I was studying at English Language Ireland during my time there. At the beginning I felt like a student but then I felt part of a big family. I met a lot of people and I made most of my friends there. Everybody in the school was really kind and helpful. They organised a lot of activities and trips. For us it was a great opportunity to get to know Ireland and the Irish culture. I am glad to have been a student there. My English improved a lot and I have just great memories of my Irish experience and my time spent there.’

Marina Ciccotelli

Au Pair from Italy.

‘As a part-time student, I studied at English Language Ireland from May to October 2015. I can only find positive words for this time and I remember a lot of great moments. The teachers of the advanced class helped me to prepare well for my Cambridge exam that I passed in October. Everybody is always friendly and helpful – not only during the classes. Also in the break time it is like a big family – and a lot of activities like trips, dancing or drinking in a pub help the students to become good friends. The time was flying and I felt so bad saying goodbye to everybody. I made a lot of friends from all over the world – and at the same time I could improve my English. I can recommend the school to everybody who wants to have an incredible time. The staff welcomed me from the first moment and the atmosphere is very warm. It was always fun going to school and it is for everybody – with advanced or beginner English knowledge. Thanks for this unforgettable time!’

From Parents

It is a big decision to send your son or daughter abroad to learn English, and parents want to know they are making the correct choice of school. All who send their children to us end up delighted with their decision:

‘Sending your son abroad for a full year´s programme is a great responsibility…and a big challenge. My experience with English Language Ireland in Carlow has been superb: well organised and a great sense of empathy and kindness. The Irish family was helpful from the very first moment! And that’s the key of their trustworthiness as an organisation.’
