Why do students come to Ireland to learn English?

Students love coming to Ireland, not only to learn English, but to experience our culture and tourism.


From the Author:

“I’ve been a teacher and writer of English for over 30 years.  I’ve taught English all over the world and returned to Ireland in the year 2000.
Amazed at the number of students coming to Ireland to learn English, I started to ask them why. They told me they heard Ireland is the friendliest place to learn English it has a magical culture & beautiful scenery and they want to learn more about our culture and music.”

Marianne Jordan, Author, Learning English in Ireland. 


 

Here is what our students say:

“Great to see a book devoted to Ireland and Irish things.”
“A nice book to take home is more professional than loose pages and photocopies.”
“We come to Ireland to learn about Irish things as well as the      English Language.”
“The celtic art is very unique and beautiful.”
“I am almost advanced level but I still found this book very interesting.”
“More interesting and fun than just learning grammar”
“The songs are great and I liked hearing the sounds of the individual Irish instruments.”
“An ideal souvenir of our study holiday in Ireland.”


 

Here is what teacher’s say:

Derek Nichol, Director of Studies at the Foyle Language School:

 

“This book is long overdue, obviously, and it deals very comprehensively with a wide range of topics, like culture, arts and mythology. It’s ideal for students coming here for either a short time or a long time, as it culturally orientates them into our ways.  It’s very user friendly, and can be adapted to suit all levels.  There are very good interactive tasks and exercises, and the book comes with audio files that the student can keep and take home afterwards with a range of Irish accents on it.”

 
“The FREE Audio files are PACKED with easy to find listening exercises to accompany the course book. Listen to information, stories, some accents from English speaking tourists visiting Ireland, tradition Irish songs and a spooky ghost story.”
