Why Study English in Dublin
For Studies: Dublin is a great city to pursue higher education. The number of international students travelling to Dublin for third-level education has significantly increased, according to an article published by the Irish Times in May 2019. If you are interested in studying at a university in Dublin, Trinity College is one of the most prestigious institutions in the city. They require all international students to show proof of English proficiency, accepting international exams such as IELTS with a passing grade of 6.5 overall or TOEFL with 88 internet-based, 570 paper-based and 230 computer-based scores. Some other options are Dublin City University, Maynooth University or University College Dublin, with similar language requirements. These international exams are quite challenging, so don’t hesitate to contact us to get started with English classes as soon as possible! We will prepare tailored lessons that adapt to your requirements and needs. And if you are actively job seeking, you will find many international companies that ask candidates to have English proficiency, such as LinkedIn, Accenture and Medtronic.
For Culture: Knowing English is also essential to get to know more about Irish culture. For example, you will be able to make the most out of Irish Day Tours, which show the most iconic destinations in the region, such as the National Gallery on Merrion Square and the Little Museum of Dublin on 15th St. All their tours are fully guided by English-speaking locals who will tell you engaging stories of Irish history and folklore. Another event you will be able to truly enjoy if you have a good command of the English language is the TradFest, a festival that has been taking place every January since 2005. This is a free event showcasing traditional and folk music in historic locations around Dublin. You will be able to understand the lyrics after taking some lessons with us! You can also join the St Patrick’s Festival every March 17, a celebration full of music, theatre, céilís (dances), art and marching bands.
For Social: Those who want to practise their English while meeting some local friends can join the Daily English-English Conversation MeetUp Group, with 14,000+ members that meet every Monday and Thursday. The objective of the group is to practise English, and they especially welcome people who are in Dublin to study, to work or to find a job, so don’t be shy and take advantage of this opportunity of putting into play what you learn with Language Trainers! And if you are a sports fan, why not attend a match to meet people with similar interests and use your English for social purposes? If you are a football lover, for example, you will surely find some fans of Bohemian F.C or Dublin United F.C. to talk about your favourite team’s goals!
