Student Reviews

I studied at ATC Language Schools in Dublin and chose the intensive English course.
The lessons were fantastic! The teachers were highly qualified and experienced, and they provided me with plenty of opportunities to practice my English skills through interactive exercises.

The best thing about studying at ATC is the supportive and welcoming environment. The teachers and staff are always eager to help you reach your language goals and are just like good friends.

Thank you so much for your help and support in every situation, for being so incredibly friendly and providing an atmosphere that felt secure and reliable with every arrangement we made. We would happily recommend ATC and your great city to our colleagues, and look forward to visiting again next year.

about your course with atc

When students choose ATC’s Bildungsurlaub Programme they will develop their overall level of English, grow in confidence in communicating in English and learn to use English in their daily lives, outside of the classroom.

All students will take an online placement test before they begin their course. The level test will cover the students’ understanding of grammar and vocabulary. ATC academic staff will also arrange a speaking and listening assessment before arrival, together these will confirm the students’ level, enabling the academic team to place the student at the correct level.

Students will also be invited to join an academic induction where a member of the ATC academic team will provide an overview of the programme, timetable and contact details for each department.

The syllabus for each level will work alongside a course book, which each student will have. Teachers will also use additional material from a variety of media sources to supplement and support the lessons.

Teachers on this course will use authentic materials such as newspaper and magazine articles, websites, YouTube videos and other sources of media to encourage discussion and develop students’ spoken fluency and accuracy.

Students will focus on grammar & vocabulary, listening & speaking, reading & writing in both lessons, ensuring a spread of skills and language points across both lessons.

Each week, teachers provide an overview of the syllabus to students which includes that week’s learning outcomes.  Students will take a weekly test and every second week the teacher will carry out a speaking or writing assessment including individualised verbal and written feedback to highlight student’s areas for further development.

Teachers at ATC Language Schools use the communicative approach, taking a learner-centred approach with a strong emphasis on communicative tasks. Students use meaningful and authentic language to promote learning in a motivating and engaging setting. Students work on a variety of interactive and collaborative pair and group activities to meet daily learning outcomes. In our Task Based Learning lessons, students will use the target language to communicate with their classmates and carry out a task to achieve a specific outcome. Students develop their language skills through their usage of English where the emphasis is on achieving a goal while building confidence and increasing motivation as they work collaborative with their peers.

All teachers with ATC Language Schools are degree qualified and all hold an internationally accredited English language-teaching certificate.
