In addition to English language tuition & horse riding, we offer students a range of cultural and recreational activities. We cater for all abilities of riders and there is one hour of riding under instruction each afternoon and 2 hours of horse and stable management. Horse riding takes place in Swords at Kilronan riding Stables. Participants are divided into groups of 8 and have their own instructor. Qualified instruction and suitable horses and ponies for all standards and ages are provided.
Language classes: All students are given a written test on their first day to determine their level of English. The test consists of 25 multiple choice questions. Students are then placed in a class at the appropriate level. On finishing their course, students are given a Student Exit Report detailing their academic progress. Lessons are interesting and motivating - the main aim is to teach students to communicate fluently and not to be afraid of expressing their ideas in a foreign language.
All the students are given 3 month's access to our E-Learning Portal and we encourage students to continue their studies through this media after leaving the college.
Clothing: Ireland’s weather can be varied, even in the summer and there are often showers (light rain). We advise students to bring mostly summer clothing, but also a few jumpers, a rain jacket and an umbrella.
