Hi! I really enjoyed my trip in Dublin with Atlas language School
However the school is better for child than teenager and I would prefer to be with adults to study than to be with teen of my age. We were like child( we have to come back with the private and it wasnt allowed to comme back with our own. )
Also the social activity were great but shorter. We have not a lot of time in the museum for exemple. They prefered to let us freetime to make shoppings. But for myself I would prefer to read and enjoy the museum
I recommand this scool because I learned a lot and I want to come back alone in Dublin. Its a lovely town for a student, if you dont care about the weather!
My experience in atlas was unbelievable. I studied during 6 months there. I changed my levels many times to stick with my improvements. Almost all of my teachers were very good and very good persons as well. A lot of activities are proposed during the afternoon or evening, some overnight trips across Ireland. It s a good opportunity to practice English and make a lot of friends from all around the world.
What you need to know going to Dublin is related to the housing prices, they are super high and the ones proposed by the school are following the same trend.
My experience has been very satisfying. Not crowded classes allow individualized teaching. Teachers are kind to students and very helpful persons. I really liked the structure of the school and the availability of common areas for socializing.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
I think it was the best choice studying in Atlas Language School. The teachers at the school are really good and you can notice that they really like teaching english. The location of the school its very good as well so it´s really easy get there.
I would recommend the school to other people who want to improve their english in Dublin.
My class was very nice. The number in it allowed me to study in an effective way. Plus the teachers were very nice, funny and chill. It made the atmosphere in the class very relaxed.
The location was perfect because it wasn't too close to the city center and not too far. And it was also very beautiful right by the canal.
The facilities are the thing that disappointed me a little bit. By that I mean the computers were very slow and full of unused things of students that left that there after having used the computer.
The activities were nice but nothing crazy. Plus if you hadn't a friend there it was kind of boring. I think the school should organize group activities of 4 or 6 people with a random formed group for people to meet other people more easily. Because if you don't know anybody, it is not that easy to make new friends.
I wasn't in a house organized by the school because I thought it was a bit expensive. So I looked up for a house on my own and after 2 weeks in a hostel, I found a house in Dublin 12. I was in a room with two Brazilian guys. It wasn't perfect but it was ok just for 2 months.
I worked very hard in my classroom. I liked the teachers and it was very fun because I had a very special birthday with them.
Facilities and activities were also ok.
This trip to Dublin, for me it is a fantastic experience because my English language has improved very much. I met beautiful people like my host family, Andy and Dolores, my friends who come from different countriesNäytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
I really enjoyed my two weeks in Atlas Language School. I met a lot of amazing people and made new friends from all over the world. Our teachers were very good and funny and our lessons were amazing. I think I improved my English a lot. Activities were great. My host family was great, I couldn't have better. I'm glad I was able to meet them.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
I really enjoyed my overall experience in Atlas, and I would recommend it to everybody who wants to improve and study English. The teachers and the classes were always good. The only thing I would have loved more is if there were some sports activities with the school. Everything else was perfect.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

I had classes with Atlas Language School and stayed at a homestay. I'm really satisfied with my experience.
The school location was good. It took about 15 minutes to walk to the city centre, and it was a nice place near the river. There was also a bike station next to the School.
The classes were very interesting and dynamic. There were people from all over the world, so we learned about different cultures and the English language as well.
In my opinion, all the staff were kind and friendly, and were concerned about how we felt. The teachers were quite good too. Heather and Ian were above all, in my opinion. They were really interested in our learning and I was never bored in their classes.
In addition, there were a lot of extra-curricular activities in the afternoon, evening or during the weekend. Some of them were free, while some cost a small sum of money.
My host was lovely. I applied to have a vegetarian diet and she tried to cook different kinds of food for me. Moreover, she tried to talk slowly in order for me to understand her, and she usually corrected my mistakes.
My homestay was near the school, about 20 minutes walking from there.
I am delighted with my choice. If and when I would want to improve my English again, I'll choose Atlas School again.
Sorry, I am so busy with my work, in Denmark I can't spend so much time writing to you. It is still difficult for me to express my thoughts in English but I 'd like to assure you that every every thing was perfect and I did enjoy all.
I didn't take part of social activities (no time for that!)
I liked pretty much everything, the host family I lived with were some of the nicest people I've met and I'm still in contact with them. The classes were meant to teach us and also have us interact with other students of the same level. We had tests every Friday to check our progress and the teachers kept track of our improvements.
They had activities everyday, from extra classes (like public speaking, or "English around the world" where they taught us some differences in the language in different countries) and trips. Normally there were local tourist trips on Wednesdays, and on the weekends there were trips all around Ireland. The only problem I saw on these trips was that there were a limited amount of people that were allowed to go, so you had to have the money ready to pay on Monday or Tuesday so you were on the list. (I can't blame them though, I can see the problems lending the money or letting people pay after would bring.)
Once I heard a rumour about a host family stealing money from their student, but as I recall, the problem was fixed right away and those guys are no longer a host family.
The location was perfect. It was pretty much in the center, it had a bus stop on the corner, and was close to the Luas (the metro/subway). It was also close to most of the host families' houses.
I remember once we had a problem with an activity. The driver of the bus preferred to take us to a not-so-cool town instead of staying on a beautiful Irish landscape. We stayed in the landscape for around 20 minutes and we sat on benches in the town for like an hour. (I think it had to do with the driver's allowed driving hours, but having known the driver from pretty much all the previous activities I thought he would listen to our complaints. He was a nice guy though.)
The facilities were great, having perfect-sized classrooms, a cafeteria, a study room, a computer lab and many other cool school rooms, but I went in the winter and in some classrooms the radiators weren't working so the people were kind of freezing. Lucky for me, a guy in my class complained a few days before I arrived, so it wasn't a problem for me.
Long story short, it was amazing, I really had to make an effort to remember those details that I didn't like but my ratings above say everything.
P.s. The dates below aren't exact, because I don't remember the exact dates right now, but they are really close to the exact ones.
Classes were really cool and amazing, teachers were friendly, and the activities were very interesting!
I liked everything. In my opinion there were no dislikes.
We went to many sights in Ireland.
I'll never forget Atlas Language School!
All of the teachers in the school were fun. The classes are very diverse. My homestay family was attentive to me.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
I really enjoyed my stay in Dublin. My host-family was really kind to me, I had a big bedroom and the house was clean and spatially. I felt like home.
I also liked the school and the teachers were all friendly. I think that we played too much games. I didn't really understand if it helped to improve our english. It seemed a little bit as if it wouldn't be taken really seriously. I preferred to speak a little bit more, maybe about facts, and to have discussions.
Another thing that I didn't like was that the activities in the afternoon were often repeated. I for example went 4 times to the wax museum, but I didn’t really have the opportunity to go to the seaside, that was a pity. I was really bored and also a little bit annoyed.
I liked the excursions on Saturday!
I would have preferred if we had had more free time, maybe in the afternoon to go for a walk in the city center or explore Dublin.
But time has gone really quickly and I made a lot of friends. I would return if I had the possibility!

I confirm that at Atlas Junior Program we have from Elementary to Advanced level.
He can leave Ireland and re-enter if he pays for the multi-entry visa. Of course, he can join a local gym that offers swimming. The school staff will happily assist him in finding the ideal version for him.
You are absolutely right, he does not need to pay the Christmas Supplement as he will not be spending Christmas there.
It is fine for both students to share a twin room in the host family. All students will have to take the bus to school each day so it’s important they know this. Also, what about the trips and excursions which involve a few hours bus journey? Yes, this should be fine. Hot lunch Monday-Friday in the school canteen is included in the price, packed lunch from the families at weekends. We will provide these details once the booking is made on the booking confirmation letter.
The bus journey will be around 15 minutes each way to school. I’m afraid we won’t be able to stop many times on the journey so if this student’s complaint is very serious, I’m not sure he should come, to be honest.
I’m afraid the full day trips on Saturdays are compulsory for all students. We wouldn’t have any other activities on offer and the families expect the students to go on the excursion
All our Junior families are located about 30 minutes by bus from school, as you may know we have a private bus who take students from the family to the school and vice verse. Students have pick up points close to their families house, and the bus stop at the pick up points to get them. We can try to find a family walking distance for the student however he would not be able to join the private coach then, and he would have to make his own way to the school. Regarding the trips I am afraid most of the activities they will be using the private bus and they can be from 30 minutes to 2 hours on the bus, to be very honest if the journey is as long as 2 hours they might make a stop, however considering the number of students we have to manage and we are responsible for, I am afraid making more than one stop would not be possible.
Regarding the fact he would like to start on Thursday we could exceptionally organize that to him, however if he is arriving on Tuesday and leave on Thursday I would strongly recommend to him to start the course on Wednesday 5th of November and finishes on Wednesday 3rd of December.
I have sent an e-mail to our examination and compliance manager regarding acceptance and CAE exam dates I will get back to you later today, but I think we'll be able to make an exception since she would be staying for so long! Does the student already have a FCE? Regarding the timetable, I have just spoken to the Dublin team who guaranteed 4 lessons of CAE preparation per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays evenings (19:00 to 20:50) with the possibility to pushing this number to 6 lessons per week, 10 lessons of A2Z Method and the possibility of tailoring the remaining 10 lessons according to her needs: she could for example do Skills or Grammar and Vocabulary, which she could be able to decide when she arrives, what she would like to do. We would then possibly reach a total of 24 lessons per week of a course tailored just for her needs. If you could maybe discuss this with the student and give me some feedback, I could then pass it on to the academic team in Dublin. We could then see exactly what she wants and offer the most suitable for her.
It will depend on her current level of English, the CAE exam is a C1 level test. If the student is currently A2, by the end of the 18 weeks she should be able to pass the PET (B1) or FCE (B2) exam. We will have an FCE exam preparation course from March - June and another one from June - August. We recommend the students to join our morning course plus the exam preparation course in the evening. We normally recommend our students to book the exam on the following link: http://alcexams.ucd.ie/cambridge/bookexam/
<http://alcexams.ucd.ie/cambridge/bookexam/ We offer the exam preparation, but we are not an examination center. Students must book a place for the exam in University College Dublin. The age should not be a problem.
We currently do not have a full-time CAE preparation course available in Dublin, but only in Manchester at the moment. Since the Dublin school is smaller than our Manchester school, we are able to offer a more tailored course. Regarding the CAE examination, this is the link that was given by my colleague. I believe that dates for July are not available yet! I believe that they will be able to book online, she would also be able to ask the student support team to help her with her booking. While students usually have to buy course books and materials in our London and Manchester schools, material fees are free in Dublin, where teachers lend course books to the students and provide materials for modules. Regarding activities, please see below for more information:
Monday – Movie Club (at school)
Tuesday – School Outing (an admission fee might sometimes be charged for
Wednesday – Walking Tour
Thursday – Tea Party (at school)
Friday – Night out (drinks in the pub) - only for 18 + students.
Weekends – Day trips are organized to various places around Ireland:
Galway, Cliffs of Mother, Belfast and Titanic, Giants Causeway, etc.
There will be UK public holidays during your clients course, therefore, four school days have been automatically added to the end of her course. Would she not like to benefit from these days? If not, I will take them off the invoice manually. Also, could you please ask your student to take our online test before confirming, in order to assess if she is the right level for CAE? http://www.a2z-english.com/testmyenglish.
The price is a package price, that includes the course, accommodation, activities, excursions and the private bus. The airport transfer is an additional money and the students can book additional evening options if they like.
To check availability I need to know if they would like to have a class only for them or mixed if they all are C1 level. Please find our online assessment test link below:
If they are a closed group we can plan a program special for them including different kind of activities they might be interested in, however the price would be different so we would have to do a new quotation according to what they are looking to do. Otherwise our normal Program includes the following:
- Access to afternoon electives, we offer 3 afternoons week electives as Pronunciation class, English Through Music, Irish life and culture, film club among others.
- Access to Social and cultural Program at discounted prices
- End-of-course certificate
As the student is a complete beginner we would advise private lessons first just to accustom and then the student can join the open classes.
I confirm that students with different gender can share a room in the residence as long as they are not under age.
During summer months July and August Griffith Hall residence can place 2 students in the same room, and if students are looking to stay in a twin room together outside summer, or any time of the year Terenure Park would be the residence available.
