‘To have another language is to possess a second soul.’ (Charlemagne)
This is our most intensive programme. Students spend 2 weeks in Dublin, and then go on an intensive 2-week, total-immersion travelling programme around Southern and Western Ireland.
This course gives students the chance to study English intensively over a 4-week period. The first 2 weeks are spent in Dublin staying with a host family. There are classes every morning from 09.00 – 13.00, and then free guided tours in the afternoon so you get to make the most of your time in Dublin before you travel around the South west of Ireland.
This 4 -week intensive course is perfect for students who want to make the most of their time here. They can focus/ concentrate on aspects of the language they want to in Dublin, and then have a 2- week full immersion travelling course during which they can talk to the TJs, guides, locals and generally deepen their knowledge and usage of English.
The fact that the 2 weeks in Dublin is followed by a total immersion 2-week travelling course means that significant progress in levels of English can be achieved.

However, on occasion and only during summer, rooms may consist of 5 or 6 beds; in all cases, rooms are private and only allocated to Travelling Languages’ students. During low season – October to May – accommodation is guaranteed in triple rooms.

Our total immersion Travelling programmes give each student the chance to improve their language skills and confidence in just one week. This course is a combination of 2 weeks in Dublin and a 2-week total immersion travelling programme, and it is the perfect course before a language exam, to build that extra confidence that will enable students to pass their exam; to highly improve their level of proficiency and to deeply immerse in Irish culture. Our courses are the perfect alternative to home tuition courses especially for those students like you who do not want to spend their time only with their teacher.
Because it gives you the opportunity to immerse gradually in the language and the culture and to increase the length of your stay.
This is why we add three afternoons of activities per week in order to make sure students get to practise, meet locals and interact in English. We also include accommodation with a host family.
Moving from town to town is a fantastic way of keeping students engaged. It helps to increase their knowledge, enhance their experience, meet different people and, most importantly, ensure that they practise English under continuous linguistic supervision.
The experience I did with Travelling Languages was great because I've learned English, made friends and visited half Ireland at the same time! I'm Italian, and even if there was another Italian guy in the group, we were forced to speak in English 24 hours a day. I remember that when I returned at home, the first day I confused some English words with Italian words! And Ireland is a wonderful country, with fantastic landscapes and friendly people.
