Our ONE-TO-ONE GENERAL ENGLISH IMMERSION COURSE + INSTITUTE COURSE will appeal to those who wish to improve their English in everyday situations, using and mastering normal expressions and good use of language with their own personal tutor for an immersion of one two or more weeks before going on to class based lessons at a partner institute in the city of Dublin. This combination course is suited to those who want to improve their general English rapidly in a relaxed immersion situation allowing for excellent preparation before entering a class for the remainder of the course. This formula has been tried and tested and allows for maximum progress and use of time.

Concerning language those specific areas such as speaking practice and listening activities, good pronunciation, correct use of grammar, vocabulary development including some directed reading and writing will be covered to improve your communication skills. Constant feedback and firm but diplomatic correction of errors feature in all courses being essential for meaningful progress. Your tutor will offer all the assistance and encouragement you need to help you improve and achieve your goals for the course.

As with all our courses, your specific needs will be identified and prioritised in the first lesson and the course will be designed to meet these needs. Our one-to-one method allows for continuous monitoring of progress and meeting evolving language needs so you can rest assured that your tutor will be flexible to ensure your course is relevant to your needs.

Following your immersion course you will then go to our fully recognized and accredited institute for the remainder of your course and study at a level that is appropriate for you allowing maximum interaction with others and opportunity to practise what you have learned. This is also a cost effective solution.

ENGLISH LEVEL REQUIRED: This course is suitable for everybody from complete beginner to those with an advanced standard.

FREQUENCY: Courses commence every week from January to December (excluding Christmas).

COST: from €1800 for one week (15 hours) (extra in July and August) one-to-one immersion with full board and accommodation for dates selected followed by a second week (20 hours) at the Institute attending group classes and on a bed and breakfast basis. This is an example and please contact us for a quote for extra weeks.

Information on Immersion course and Institute classes

Every immersion course involves some work on pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, reading and writing. In your language needs analysis you will discuss the approximate amount of time you would like to spend on the various language areas. Your tutor will of course give you professional advice but your wishes are always respected and taken into account in every course! Therefore the content and direction of your course is planned with you and only you in mind.

Lessons for all courses are 60 minutes each including a short rest period with your tutor and take place in the morning and early afternoon depending on the number of lessons you have booked. The exact schedule will be discussed and agreed with your teacher on the first morning; however, it is usual to have the majority, if not all, of the lessons completed in the morning. This schedule will enable you to maximise your free time to explore the city and surrounding area.

There will be a certain amount of homework assigned each day connected to the language covered. This provides a chance for valuable practice of what you have learned and allows your tutor to monitor your progress. The amount of homework assigned is agreed with you and should take no more than an hour or so to complete.

On the final day of your immersion course there will be an opportunity for feedback and your tutor will recommend a strategy for future study. We invite you to keep in touch with us and your tutor as we are interested in your progress and of course hope to see you back at some time in the future. We will of course stay in contact with you when you attend the institute and will help you if you have any difficulties.

Following the immersion course you will transfer to your new accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis and attend group lessons at our partner institute in central Dublin for 20 hours general English per week for the number of weeks reserved. We will keep in touch with you to see all is well and assist you as necessary.
