Travelling Languages has selected the best and most comfortable
accommodation in the centre of each city we visit.
A friendly and comfortable environment helps students to feel more confident when using English.
We mainly reserve rooms with 3 beds and an en-suite, to allow students to get ready together each morning and to be on time for class. 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. They are the perfect refresher course before a language exam, to build that extra confidence that will enable students to pass their exam. Our courses are the perfect alternative to home tuition courses especially for those students who do not want to spend their time only with their teacher.
Our small classes make sure that each student receives the necessary attention by the teachers and the presence of TJs allows students to build their confidence in using English in real life situations (not only while in class). Every day you practise 16 hours out of 24 (assuming they sleep 8 hours per night): that is a massive 208 hours during the 2 week travelling programme.
Moving from town to town is a fantastic way of keeping students engaged. It helps to increase your knowledge, enhance your experience, meet different people and, most importantly, ensure that you practise English under continuous linguistic supervision.
Because it gives you the opportunity to immerse gradually in the language and the culture.
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.
The course is organised in order to discover the most breath-taking places Ireland has to offer. However, if students have any particular requests or would like to visit a specific place, we can adapt the programme accordingly.
We provide each student with an entrance test to make sure that everyone has the right level to interact with each other and get the most out of the course. Students need to pass an initial on-line test to be admitted to our courses, to complete a needs analysis survey and to pass an oral assessment, in that way the teacher is able to customise the lessons to meet each student’s specific needs.
All our rooms are big and comfortable, all private for our students and only en-suite.
In order to guarantee a real total immersion we organise rooms so that students of different nationality share the same room, however, if you prefer, a private room can be booked at a surcharge.
