Student Reviews

I finished my course in ATC Bray and I have improved my English. I want to return. I want to thank my teachers for their lessons and I would like to recommend this school because for me it was a great opportunity to see a new country and visit wonderful places around Ireland.

I left a piece of my heart there and I’ll always remember this amazing experience. I’ll never forget the evenings on the beach with my friends, the things we shared and all I learnt in ATC! My English has improved so I’m delighted! Thanks ATC!
