English Adult classes Ireland

Accredited, weekly English Language classes for adults will be available from this July in Carlow, Ireland. 

Carlow International English Language School (CIELS) and Equinox Education Services (EES), two indigenous, Carlow-based language service providers, are teaming up to provide high quality English Language classes for adults this summer, that are prepared by a Cambridge DELTA accredited Director of Studies.  The collaboration will be the second time both organisations have come together to deliver a high-quality programme based in Carlow and follows on from their successful study and cultural exchange programme between a group of 37 students from a co-educational High School near Yokohama, Japan and student groups from Italy, Finland and Holland in March 2018.       

The English Adult Classes are predominately aimed at adults looking to combine a cultural trip or holiday with an opportunity to improve their English and will be facilitated in Carlow throughout July 2019. Students can elect to study in cycles of either two or three weeks (15 hours per week) in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, where the teachers will focus on a communicative approach to develop a student's learning. Outside of class times both organisations are happy to assist students with planning activities and excursions during their time in Ireland.     

Speaking at the launch of the classes, Danny Barron, Director of Studies at CIELS said "I'm delighted to be collaborating with Equinox in the delivery of these Adult English classes this summer. I believe our combined expertise will ensure that the highest possible quality of teaching standards will be achieved for our students within an environment that will be perfect for their learning experience" He added "places will be limited, but I am confident that demand will mean that we can also roll out these classes to other times of the year".

These sentiments were echoed by Equinox Education Services' Manager Director Noel Doyle who commented "Myself and my team are excited to be joining forces with CIELS again by this time in offering English classes for Adults. Our respective skill sets compliment our organisations, so students can expect the very highest standards for learning English."
