The DLTC English Language School in Dublin, Ireland, provides a wide range English language courses to foreign students of various levels, needs and ages. We offer the English language courses listed in the course information below. For more information on each course, please click on the course required.
Why study at the DLTC?
Genuinely small group sizes (7/8 students per class average) * Speaking-focused * Great value ...
Speaking-focused - the DLTC puts special emphasis on getting students to speak English successfully. We believe that you can answer grammar questions at home but that you don't know a language until you can speak it. For this reason we give up to 50% of our general English class time to speaking and conversation practice - about topics that matter to you. The other 50% of class time is devoted to grammar topics, reading and writing. The content of private English courses may differ.
Small Classes - To ensure students get good teacher attention and every opportunity to practise their speaking, class sizes are kept small. The sizes may vary but in general there are no more than 11 people in an English class and the average during the year is about 7/8 students per class.
Great Value! By offering our English courses directly over the internet, we can offer our top-quality courses in to you at a lower price than most schools in Dublin or Ireland.
We're great at what we do! At the end of every course we ask our students to tell us what they thought - look at what they say about us in our Students Comments section and on our Facebook group DLTC Language School

Students are generally provided with course materials to use during their English lessons. For some courses (e.g. Cambridge exam courses), students may prefer to buy a copy of the coursebook.
All students are given a course certificate of attendance at the end of their course stating their level of English and the length of the course (in hours).
Free computer, internet, and wi-fi access.
Various levels English courses are available at levels from Elementary to Advanced. Students complete an English level test either before they arrive or on the first day to determine their level so that we can place them in an appropriate class.
Student progress is continually monitored by teachers to make sure that students are progressing - changes to levels can be made as students progress.
Tea, coffee, and cold drinks are available to students during breaks.
All our language teachers are well experienced and qualified to Department of Education & Science required standards, as well as having years of experience teaching English as a foreign language both in Ireland and abroad. So whether you want to improve your general English or prepare for Cambridge English exams such as the First Certificate, CAE or IELTS, we have the experience to help you succeed.
The school is located in Dun Laoghaire, one of the most beautiful and safest suburbs of Dublin overlooking Dublin Bay. It is only 20 minutes from Dublin city centre and 20 minutes from Co Wicklow, the picturesque garden of Ireland.
We are an enthusiastic and dynamic school with incredibly friendly staff and teachers who are always willing to help you with your needs.
