Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Absolutely don't buy at the beginning the text books suggested by the school, but just wait until you'll be placed in your right and definitive level, otherwise you will be forced to buy more books
Other comments
You can organize yourself independently from the school trips to the Cliffs of Moher and Connemara Park, because you are you will not save anything at all doing it troughout the school

Visit Connemara, go out as much as you can, meet people from there, talk.
Other comments
The host families should be better selected : closer to the city center and with a true relationship between host and student.

Our two teachers were enthusiastic. They deserve great praise for their perseverance and the ability to understand "our" wide variety of accents ;-) Versatile lessons with various tools.... funny, informative, certainly "challenging", never boring. The "free lessons" were also very informative, some really excellent and sometimes more "useful" for knowledge building than the actual lessons.
Other comments
Sometimes the knowledge level of the participants in a group differs strongly. At the admission interview, it should be spoken more about the individual's desires, aspired goals etc. The written categorization test isn't really meaningful.

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.
Other comments
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.
