Berlitz Dublin is one of the oldest schools in Dublin!

Location: Berlitz Dublin is located in the bustling and enchanting city of Dublin, the capital city of Ireland. The school is housed in the Dublin 2 area of the city, often referred to as the city's creative hub, a short distance from the city centre, the Temple Bar neighbourhood, and a 2-minute walk from Trinity College Dublin. There are many amenities, eateries, links to public transport, museums, and attractions within walking distance, including the Merrion Square Park, the National Gallery of Ireland, the Natural History Museum of Ireland, the Book of Kells, St. Stephen's Green and much more. The school is right in the middle of some of Dublin's most attractive and infamous areas.

Course selection: Berlitz Dublin offers an extensive range of courses throughout the year. In addition to General English courses, suitable for students of all levels over various schedules and intensities, the school also supplies IELTS Exam Preparation, 40 plus Sports and Culture, Business English, Cambridge Exam Preparation, English for Medical Professionals, English for Aviation, and Executive English courses. Junior programmes are also available for students aged 16-18 years.

Social and cultural: Dublin has an abundance of cultural and social happenings that are not to be missed. A trip to the local Temple bar for a drink, visiting Dublin Castle or scouring through the city's many museums; there is something for everyone.

I liked the kindness and courtesy of the staff and teachers. I was particularly impressed by the two extra private lessons that they offered me (due problems during the 2 weeks of my course) by the excellent teacher Denise Harford. Good quality of the 2 private lessons.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss More accurate information BEFORE THE BOOKING about the course organization and didactic, specially for course of only two weeks. The first week of my course was also the final week of academic syllabus. Students completed their final exam the previous week so teachers do a lot of external exam prep and games on that week. I didn't need to spend 4 hours learning how to pass the IELTS exam! The school also had an issue with the photocopier which made it difficult for teachers to do their planned lesson (Result: more than 4 hours watching Netflix series...)

Other comments Even though the Director of Studies understood that some of the classes may not have been ideal for me and kindly offered me two private lessons, I must say this was not enough for my expectations - and the cost- of a Super-Intensive General English Course.

Great teachers, very pleasant atmosphere
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Don't mix students who are only there for a week and students who stay for months. A student who is only there for a week wants to learn with more "pressure" and take in as much as possible.

Questions and answers about Berlitz

  • Students need to be at a C1 level to join the C1 class. On average, after attending a 12 week course at C1, students should be ready for the official exam. If someone has completed a B2 level then they can join the C1 class. If someone is at B2 level then the exam would be FCE for them. We do a level test of each student and find their current level to place them in the right class and guide them for the right exam.
