Cork English College is recognised by the Department of Education for the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language and is the official TOEIC examination centre for Cork. Our teachers are University graduates qualified to teach English as a Foreign Language. They are chosen for their expertise, experience and ability to ensure productive and enjoyable courses tailored to the student's individual needs, interests and aims. Our curriculum is based on a combination of language structures functions and vocabulary. Classroom activities ensure development of the four skills (speaking, reading, listening and writing).
We've always aimed to be the leading provider of E.F.L. (English as a Foreign Language) in Ireland through the provision of a service of outstanding quality and professionalism in a warm and friendly environment, and we do that by following two simple rules:
• We provide a service of outstanding quality and professionalism.
• We never lose sight of the fact that we are a family-run business and strive to preserve our warm and friendly environment.

In 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.
