Lesson Themes

This programme consists of 20 hours tuition per week, including General English and English in Action Projects, designed to encourage interaction in a practical environment. With General English lessons taking place in the classroom, English in Action Projects are a wonderful opportunity to engage with local, native speakers through street surveys, interviews, educational role plays, and short trips to the vast array of local markets.

Our highly qualified and experienced teachers have been handpicked for their dynamic and energetic teaching approach, guaranteeing an engaging and rewarding student experience. Students will cover 2-3 topics per week.

A sample of these topics are listed below:

  • Crime & Punishment
  • Music, Movies & Art
  • Pop Culture & Social Media
  • Irish Culture
  • History & Folklore
  • Adventure & Travel
  • Shopping
  • Money & Advertising
  • Health, Medicine & Science

English in Action Projects also take students outside the classroom. Students are encouraged to present their findings from each project to the class in the form of a lively presentation, debate, etc., and are encouraged to make use of the whiteboards and computers to illustrate their findings.

The class is given an opportunity to ask questions about the presentation, and a vote is taken at the end of the lesson to decide which projects were the most engaging, informative, and educational. Below are some descriptive examples of the engaging English in Action Projects the students will participate in:

  • Tourist Office Visit
  • Garden of Rememberance Excursion
  • Artistic Exhibitions
  • Street Surveys
  • Interviews
  • Historical Market Visit
