The library is not too confortable, its light, the shelves, ... There are not many social activities with the school, or complementary activities in the school: movies, one extra conversation lesson free (one per week), There is not a place where students can spend their free time or exchange experiences (student room or café)

Cork is a very lovely city: very quiet, very safe. There are a lot of very nice traditional pubs. Irish people are very friendly and open, always available. Student residence is a good occasion to meet people from other country, to talk with them, to share experiences.

The test at the beginning of the course was too easy and there was too less space between the students, Finbarr is a good teacher, he is balanced, uses different methods, includes grammar, vocabulary as well as discussion and culture, he is relaxed and interested in the students countries and personalities, the rooms in the language centre are too small, there is no bicycle parking
