In Dublin, your classes run Monday to Friday, starting at 09:30 and ending at 12:45.

What time does the school building open?

Our school buildings open at 08:30 Monday to Friday and are not open at the weekend.

Will the classes follow a textbook?

Your lessons are developed by our academic team and are designed specifically to meet your needs. Every week, a programme will be posted up in your classrooms so that you will be aware of that week’s learning goals.

You can buy a course textbook from the school reception and this will be used to provide structure for the lessons and it can be purchased from the school reception.

How will you decide which class I will be placed into?

You will sit a placement test on your first day at our school. This will assess your grammar, writing and speaking skills and is used by our academic teams to place you in the most appropriate class.

Will I be able to move up or down levels during my stay?

We offer a system of continuous assessment during your study and at the end of each week our academic team will discuss which students should move to a different level in order to maximise their language experience.

If you feel you are in the wrong level, speak to your class teacher or to the Director of Studies.
