Student, Teacher and Parent Comments

26/08/2016: Our son is back from his second Irish experience with you. He told us everything went well and he is happy of the period he passed both with his host family and with the school. We read the report of his English lessons: it looks like he is improving his ability in speaking English. But what, we parents, care more about and that your organization seems to satisfy, is that he is growing and becoming more mature and independent. Thank you for all you do. - Barbara, Parent of Summer Junior Student

12/08/2016: Sólo unas líneas para deciros que mi hijo ha estado muy contento y muy bien estos días que ha pasado ahí. La estancia ha sido fructífera, ya que partía con un conocimiento mínimo del idioma y creo que estos días le han servido para al menos aprender a comunicarse y perder el miedo a hablar Inglés. Ha estado muy contento con la familia y quiere repetir el año que viene tanto la estancia como la familia - Cristina, Parent of Summer Junior Student

19/05/2010: "Ich bin zur Sprachenschule DLTC (Dun Laoghaire Tuition Centre) gegangen, was eine sehr gute Wahl war. Die Lehrer waren sehr nett und immer hilfbereit, ausserdem wurde im Unterricht viel Wert auf Kommunikation, Sprachfertigkeit, Hörverstehen, Lesen und Schreiben, sowie auf die englische Grammatik gelegt. Ich habe in kurzer Zeit viel lernen können und somit in höhere Kurse aufsteigen. In der DLTC wird man meiner Meinung nach sehr gut auf die verschiedenen Exame vorbereitet. Das Lernen macht Spass, weil es in einer lockeren freundlichen Umgebung passiert. Ausserdem bietet die DLTC ab und an kleine Ausflüge oder Veranstaltungen für ihre Studenten an, sodass man auch die Studenten anderer Kurse kennen lernen kann.
