Online Summer Junior English Course

We provide the following to our online summer junior English course students:
  • 9 hours of course per week:
    • 7.5 contact hours of General English per week (Monday-Friday)
    • 1.5 hours project work each week which is completed offline by students and corrected offline by teachers.
  • Experienced, native-speaking English teachers (qualified to Irish Department of Education standards)
  • Various levels of English classes from Elementary (A2) to Advanced (C2) – classes are 45 minutes each between 09:00-10:40 or 11:00-12:40 each weekday Monday-Friday - the set of times for any student will be according to the student’s level of English. Please note all times for our online summer course are Central European Summer Time (so, for example, 9am on the course is 8am in Ireland)
  • Online assessment test before arrival and personal online oral assessment in advance of course
  • Special focus on getting students ‘speaking’ and using the language successfully by focusing on topics relevant to the student
  • • Students will get to work in pairs or small groups in ‘break-out’ rooms which are controlled by the teacher. This will allow them to work with their peers, to use their English and to get to know other students from all around Europe – a great way to make new friends!
  • Average class sizes of 6 students per class (Maximum 8)
  • Use of all course materials and modern, interactive, online classroom technology
  • Weekly assessment via project work with 1-1 feedback sessions if needed.
  • A short piece of homework or ‘offline’ work most days (a course project) – which is corrected with notes by teacher outside of class time and presented by students at the end of the week.
  • End-of-course Certificate, suggestions for further study, progress report and Statement of Results

Important: We focus on 'Speaking' >

At DLTC English Language School, our belief is that you haven’t really learned a language until you can speak it. Many students arrive at our school with some ability to answer English grammar questions in books but with little experience in using that knowledge and actually speaking the language. Therefore, while our classes also cover grammar, writing, listening and reading, our main focus is getting students to speak the language successfully. We do this by focusing on relevant, real-world topics that are of interest to the student and that are matched to their level. We have 6 class levels available from Elementary A1 to Advanced C1 so whether a student is only beginning in English or aiming for a Cambridge exam, we know our classes will help them succeed at their goals. Our aim is that at the end of the course each student will be able to talk about their summer in Ireland and depart with better fluency, an increased vocabulary and a greater confidence in their use of English.
