As a part-time student I studied at ELI from May till October 2015. I can only find positive words for this time and I remember a lot of great moments. The teachers of the advanced class helped me to prepare well for my Cambridge exam that I passed in October. Everybody is always friendly and helpful - not only during the classes. Also in the break time it is like a big family - and a lot of activities like trips, dancing or drinking in a pub help the students to become good friends. The time was flying and I felt so bad saying goodbye to everybody. I made a lot of friends from all over the world - and at the same time I could improve my English. I can recommend the school to everybody who wants to have an incredible time. The staff welcomed me from the first moment and the atmosphere is very warm. It was always fun going to school and it is for everybody - with advanced or beginner English knowledge. Thanks for this unforgettable time!
Sending your son abroad for a Full Year´s programme is a great responsibility...and a big challenge. My experience with ELI in Carlow has been superb: well organized and a great sense of empathy and kindness. The Irish family was helpful from the very first moment! And that’s the key of their trustworthiness as an organisation.
”Dear Ruth, I want you to know that I am very pleased with the quality of service your school provides. When I have visited your school, I can see your high quality service for the students. I sincerely appreciate your responsiveness and the way you conduct business. My students are delighted at great service you and your staff provide. I have recommended your school to others because of our satisfaction with your service. I look forward to doing business with you for years to come. Best Regards,”
“Our family is now about to enter its fourth year of doing business with English Language Ireland and it has been such a positive experience for us! Every year, we have made a new friend in another country. We learn a little more about their culture and as a family we learn to adapt to the needs of our guests, be they long-term or short-term. In our experience, English Language Ireland is really dedicated to making sure each and every one of its students learns as much as English as possible, while having as happy a time as possible, while they stay here in Ireland. The school is efficient and professional at all times in its dealings with Host Families and Students.”
“During two summers I improved my English thanks to the help of English Language Ireland. I made friends in Carlow; host families, teachers and classmates too. Going to Ireland has been the best experience of my life. I didn’t think that when I took the plane but all change when I met the friendly Irish people. Hope to see you soon in Carlow.”
"My name is Marina I am 25 and I am from Italy. I was working as an aupair in a village near Carlow and I was studying at the ELI during my time there. At the beginning I felt like a student then I felt part of a big family. I met a lot of people and I made most of my friends there. Everybody in the school was really kind and helpful. They organised a lot of activities and trips. For us it was a great opportunity to get to know Ireland and the Irish culture. I am glad to have been a student there. My English improved a lot and I have just great memories of my Irish experience and my time spent there."
“We want to thank all at ELI for the great job done with our teenage groups sent over the past 3 summers and again this year; carefully selected host families for our students, high academic level, exciting and fun activity programme, all mixed together in the beautiful Carlow town. ELI is a friendly organisation where we received a highly personalised, caring and professional service. We will keep sending groups with your experienced and enthusiastic professional team. Thank you”.
