The way of teaching: very dedicated and sympathetic teachers have been - absolutely at eye level - communicated with us significantly, in other words: the foreign language in everyday life, or in communication over interesting topics made relevant, thus creating the possibility of using it to improve your own handling.

Good work vibe. The school focuses on oral practice. The extracurricular visits with Tom are very nice and help us to progress in English. The staff is friendly, available and helps us in all the steps.

Not all teachers are good enough. Some obviously do not prepare anything. We are made to buy an exercise book but in the end we use it little.

Other comments At Kenilworth you feel like a part of a big family. The school director and teacher Colm Maguire and the Administration Officer Ann Phelan are working really hard to make the lessons and stay as interesting and enjoyable as possible and they do a great job. My daughter attended in the same time as me the course for teenagers in Summer Centre at Terenure College. She improved her English and had a fantastic time during her stay as well.. I recommend Kennilworth to everybody who wants to learn lots of English and have lots of fun. I am sure you won't waste your time and money.

I think it's the best type of accommodation because it allows you to learn more about Irish culture and traditions, but above all to improve your English because you have many more opportunities to practise it.

Other comments If you are young enough (18-21), you may like to visit Terenure College, the junior Kenilworth School. You'll find more young people to share your free time in the afternoons (playing sports or doing some trips to the city centre) and at nights (You will always remember Trinity College, O'Connell Street and Temple Bar).

Other comments This school is great. Teachers are very very friendly, they are very near to their students, they help us in what they can if you ask for something they always help you without any problem. I encourage everybody to go to this school, it is wonderful. Of course you have to work and study but as teachers are so good it´s easier learn and pay attention in class.

Other comments In Kenilworth school, I had a very great time. I met fantastic people! Available professors and sociable students . A beautiful and unique experience that I will never forget, just like Mrs. Betty that hosted me. The irish landscapes are unique in the world, where the atmosphere that you find there is not found anywhere else. Irish people are a friendly people and always ready to lend a hand.

Quality of teaching / language progress: The adult-only courses allow you to share ideas and opinions with the other students in the class and thus practise the language better. The lessons were therefore much more engaging.
