We focus on 'Speaking' >

At DLTC English Language School, our belief is that you haven’t really learned a language until you can speak it. Many students arrive at our school with some ability to answer English grammar questions in books but with little experience in using that knowledge and actually speaking the language. Therefore, while our classes also cover grammar, writing, listening and reading, our main focus is getting students to speak the language successfully. We do this by focusing on relevant, real-world topics that are of interest to the student and that are matched to their level. We have 6 class levels available from Elementary A1 to Advanced C1 so whether a student is only beginning in English or aiming for a Cambridge exam, we know our classes will help them succeed at their goals. Our aim is that at the end of the course each student will be able to talk about their summer in Ireland and depart with better fluency, an increased vocabulary and a greater confidence in their use of English.
