Teaching Methods:
Many students tell us they lack the confidence to speak English. We base our teaching on the Communicative Approach to language learning and we focus on communicating in English - to develop that missing confidence.

How do we achieve this? Very simply, we make it fun to learn - Kinsale town becomes your extended classroom. All your sports and creative activities are through English and shared with Irish students. We will give you temporary membership of Kinsale library (another opportunity to integrate). Our teachers will take you on historical walks and to a weekly market where you will be encouraged to communicate.

Back in the classroom, we will help you develop and improve your grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Small classes mean we dedicate more time to each student. Our classrooms are in quiet areas where you will not be distracted.
