Irish educational system
There is a common framework in the European education system, but for matters of courses validation we advise you to consult the school your child is attending or even your country´s Ministry of Education.
Host Family Time
Living with the family is the best option for practising English and learning about local culture and traditions. The family homes are spread over a wide area making it almost impossible to meet students of the same nationality.
Our families are responsible for the entertainment of the student and weekend planning. Our students are always placed in the same house with an Irish brother / sister of the similar age and with the same hobbies. The families will have constant interaction with the student and they will always be treated as a member of the family.
