Ireland is an extremely beautiful country! The school was great, but the host family has left bad impression.

Cosy 20-classroom school in Bray with accommodation located 5 minutes away from school.

School offers 3 free classes per week for those who want to practice speaking skills!

ATC Bray has 20 classrooms in Dunluice House, all of which are laid out to facilitate communicative learning and maximise students’ interaction with their teachers and with each other. The school has Wi-Fi internet access available throughout the building.

The classrooms are bright, spacious and warm, and many have magnificent views across the Irish Sea. There is a student study centre available for students who wish to study independently using the materials available in our library. The students can use this room to do their homework or practise/ improve their skills in English. The student library contains a wide selection of both educational and recreational reading materials. Teachers are always available to assist students with their studies. The ATC computer room is equipped with 25 computers and is open for students from 13.30 to 17.00 Monday to Friday.

The school also provides a comfortable cafeteria where tea and coffee are available for students. In addition, we have a student common room and private garden and patio area, with ample seating for our students.

All our teachers are native English speakers, who have a university degree and a professional qualification in English Language Teaching. Our trainers are dedicated professionals and have many years experience in teaching English to students from all over the world. Our teaching staff is guided by our Director of Studies who works closely with the teaching team in monitoring the progress of our students. Progress tests are done in class on a regular basis and in negotiation with teachers and the Director of Studies.

Our curriculum is based on the CEFR, Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, and focuses on student-centred learning. Each lesson is 60 minutes. Classes are available at all levels year round. ATC classes hold a maximum of 15 students, but you can expect an average of 8 to 12 students in class at most times of the year.

Students studying with ATC can choose from a comprehensive range of courses; from General and Intensive English to Exam Preparation Courses for IELTS, Cambridge FCE and CAE and Teacher Training Programmes for native and non native speakers.

Ireland is an extremely beautiful country! The school was great, but the host family has left bad impression.

The school organised a lot of interesting activities for students, many of them are free.

The only thing I did not like at all was my host family. They made a good first impression but then... I had a lot of misunderstandings with them. The food was awful: only ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat products, pizza, pasta, toasts. I asked my hosts to cook anything else but they decide not to take to heart my desires. Anyway, the house itself was comfortable and cosy.

excellent

Since I lived in a family, I had an opportunity to communicate in English not only with teachers and new friends at school, but also at home with native speakers every day.

The classes are taught in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, everyone is very nice, teachers are really professional and love their work. I liked the selection of study materials. Especially the extra classes and open lessons on the culture of Ireland. Additional classes are thought of as lessons on speaking, but, actually, they are much wider and also expand your vocabulary, etc.
