This is a total immersion 1-week travelling course. Students are engaged in English from the moment they wake up until they go to bed.

A friendly and comfortable environment helps students to feel more confident when using English.

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. The 1-week travelling programme is the perfect refresher course before a language exam, to build that extra confidence that will enable students to pass their exam. It is also 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 you to build your confidence in using English in real life situations (not only while in class). Every day students practise 16 hours out of 24 (assuming they sleep 8 hours per night): that is a massive 96 hours during this 1 week travelling programme.
Moving from town to town is a fantastic way of keeping you 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.
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 are accredited by ACELS and all our teachers are experienced, native speakers, have a degree and are fully qualified with a TEFL internationally-recognised qualification.
The courses are suitable for people who already have an intermediate level. Due to the small class sizes, our teachers can ensure that the learning needs of each student are met. Every activity (inside and outside the classroom) is designed to encourage you to improve your confidence and ability in using the language.
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. You 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.
Breakfasts and dinners mentioned in the “What We Include” paragraph are included. However, you can add the “Half Board” option to your booking.
All our rooms are big and comfortable, all private for our students and only en-suite. Even the rooms we reserve in hostels are as comfortable as any room in a B&B or hotel.
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.
