We’d love to welcome you to our centre in the heart of beautiful County Kerry, Ireland. For all of our courses, participants live at the Eclipse Centre in very comfortable accommodation. All meals are included Monday through Friday. The local pub, shop and post office are a 15-minute walk away or you can take a bicycle and it’s even closer. For teen courses, there is a resident adult in the house for the duration of the course. Weekends, you are free to explore the area or enjoy the many activities available at Eclipse.
University Level CoursesUpper-Intermediate/Advanced Courses are 3 weeks long (see dates below) with 20 hours of instruction per week. The focus of the classes is on improving your spoken and written command of English. We will work on some of the more difficult aspects of grammar, depending on individual needs. Grammar, by the way, needn’t be boring! Students interested in practising writing skills will be given the opportunity to do additional writing outside class: essays, news summaries, reports etc… and all work will be corrected and discussed. In addition, German and Dutch native speakers can work on translation skills if desired.
Price: €560.00 per week – includes accommodation & meals Monday-Friday
Intensive Exam Preparation CoursesCourses are 10 days long with classes 5 hours a day on 9 of the days. These courses are scheduled to fit your schedule and your exams. You will be able to contact our language instructor, Susan May, in advance and discuss the format of your university exams and how best to prepare for them. Whatever kind of final exam you have, you will be able to work specifically on the skills you need: essay writing, translation, text analysis or anything else. Susan taught university level courses in Germany for 8 years and has a good deal of experience in exam preparation and marking.
These courses need a minimum of 4 participants
