Insider tips about what future students should not miss: 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.
Other comments: I am completely satisfied: recommendable city and school.
I felt very comfortable in this language school. Small class sizes, different levels, very friendly and open-minded teachers. The teachers rotate so that I also had the pleasure of being taught by different teachers. Everyone has their own methods and approach. I not only learned English there, but also a lot about the country and its people and this has not been limited to Ireland. The classes are mixed differently: different backgrounds, different cultures, different mother tongues. Through the group work, you have the opportunity to learn about all these, to get into conversation and make friends at the same time. The school itself offers various leisure activities and additional hours. Bus tours can also be booked and paid for at the school.
