ESL Program Introduction
General English, Business English and Exam Preparation courses are run year-round. On the first day, students will meet with the Academic Director and develop clear learning objectives based on their level and needs. While there are specific levels of English required for our Professional and Exam Preparation courses, we offer General English courses for all levels of English, from Elementary to Advanced (based on the Common European Framework of Reference). These courses are designed to give students the language skills to live, work, study and travel in an English-speaking environment.
In addition, we also specialise in designing language programmes for groups and individuals with specific requirements.

Many students find staying with an Irish family a very rewarding experience as it offers them a unique insight into Irish culture and provides the perfect opportunity to improve English by practising it in a natural everyday context.We work with many Irish families in the area who provide accommodation for students during their time in Ireland. These are large, well-kept houses where students have their own room and study facilities. The families are very friendly and meals are provided every day (full board). The price for host family accommodation is additional 185 per week + 60 accommodation placement fee (which you pay just once regardless of the number of weeks you wish to stay).
For students who do not wish to stay with a host family we have a number of modern, fully serviced apartments available for short-term rent around the city (self-catering). Due to demand, apartment accommodation generally needs to be booked at least 4 weeks before a student is due to arrive. The following options are available:
This stunning 4 bedroom house is located in beautiful Dublin 6, just 5 minutes by bus or 20 minutes on foot to Atlas. The house has bright, modern bedrooms, with one bathroom for each room. There is a spacious common area, as well as a large deck outside to enjoy the fresh air.
These modern apartments are located on Newmarket Square, Dublin 8, and are approximately 10 minutes walk to the school and the city centre. The apartments are bright and spacious. Each 2 bedroom apartment can accommodate 2 students per room. Each apartment has a large, furnished living room, kitchen and bathroom.
