Image of English School in Cork City, IrelandIn addition to our library of resources , extensive use is made of authentic material including video, television and radio recordings, newspapers and magazine articles and so on. In this way, students are encouraged to become familiar with the ways English is used in day-to-day life. As many students are anxious to improve their spoken English, there is a strong emphasis on development of oral fluency. Teachers use role-play, group and pair work, drama, debate and discussion to give students maximum opportunity to speak English.

Homework assignments and supervised self-study allow students to develop their skills outside the classroom.

Student progress is monitored throughout the course and there are frequent opportunities for students to give both written and verbal feedback. Each student receives a final report and certificate on completion of their course.
