The Irish Summer School Education,Dublin

In a modern environment away from the capital, the aim of the courses is to encourage students to express themselves in English with confidence.

The practice of English is not limited to the classroom: every day, during simulation workshops and during leisure activities, all times of the day are used to speak English. This language course in Gormanston Park is more than just a technical workout of the language, it is a complete immersion.

The lessons and the accommodation of the participants will take place in an adjacent, modern building. OISE's classrooms are simple and have all the technical necessities needed for interactive teaching. Gormanston Park also has a large sports facility, a cafeteria and modern shared rooms. There is a well-equipped Indoor Sports Complex, which allows students to pursue their hobbies after school. Whether football, volleyball, basketball or hockey, Gormanston Park offers enough space for all sports enthusiasts.
