Being a small school, the relationship between pupils and teachers and pupils and pupils turns out into a strong friendship.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Galway is a beautiful town and, in my opinion, it makes sense to go for three months or more, as I did, because the Irish air needs to be slowly breathed. The locals are fantastic and you feel good. You should visit very well Ireland, which is wonderful and the best thing for guys, who want to spend a whole year, (which I recommend) is to book few month in the family and then find an accommodation in ans apartment on the spot, or for the luckiest, even a job because it's much nicer not to stay in a family.

The school provides a good service, it's raising up again after a "sad" fall occurred a little ago and it's doing that really well. The Irish are very nice and the school staff super helpful

It is worth to explore the surrounding of Galway! In the west, the nature is very beautiful. For the evening: O'Connor's bar in the quarter Saltill.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
They basically teach grammar, which, for me, is an old-fashioned teaching method that gives worse results than the communicative methods. I had three teachers in four weeks and I only liked the last one. I was in two homestays, two weeks in each, and they barely talked to the students. I chose that type of accommodation to talk to Irish people but it was almost impossible. 15 minutes a day tops.

Choose your level well, each level change means another 50 euros spent on course material.
