Ireland’s climate

While studying in Ireland you may experience temperate maritime climate with mild winter and not so hot summer months. Although it might be raining throughout the whole year, it is milder in the East of the country and stronger in the West of the country. Compared to the seaside cities those which are situated in the centre of the country are far more frosty in the winter and hotter in the summer. Learn English language in our school in Dublin and enjoy the mild climate of the city.

Study, Work and Personal Development
We offer a range of courses suitable for medium to long term study and for people wishing to develop their work skills while in Ireland.
These fall under one of the following categories:
Internships and work experience. These are unpaid programmes suitable for all nationalities
Study & Work. For people who wish to immerse themselves in English and work while doing so. We have programmes suitable for EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA nationals
Au Pair stays. For EU/EEA nationals only. This is suitable for girls aged between 18 and 24 years old.

English with Internship/Work Experience (for ALL Nationalities)

Designed for university students and young professionals looking to obtain practical work experience in a company in Ireland.
The aim is to place the client in a company that is relevant to his/her training and/or profession.
Because this is an unpaid programme, employers expect a highly motivated student. We mainly place people in areas such as general administration, marketing and finance, but we have also placed people in areas such as IT, politics, engineering and law.
This programme is tailored to your client's individual needs and requires at least 4 weeks advance booking.
The length of the initial language course and the placement period can be adjusted to suit – please ask us.
Applicants require a minimum Upper Intermediate (CEFR level B2) level of English.

Au Pair Course (for EU/EEA Passport Holders)

For girls aged between 18 and 24 years old.
This course is aimed at girls who wish to immerse themselves in an Irish family while still benefiting from a structured English language course.
It is also aimed at the budget conscious traveller.
In general girls will do 35 hours per week of light housework, childcare, baby sitting, preparing meals, etc. They are guaranteed two half-days and at least one other full day off per week. In return they receive accommodation and board from the family and a minimum of €90 per week pocket money.
Because we see the girls at least twice per week in the school the school is able to offer a full support service in case of problems and misunderstandings – something you do not get with other Au Pair placements.
This programme is not suitable for everyone. If a potential client does not like children no housework, or their primary motivation is money, then they are unsuitable for an Au Pair position.
