Dublin is the right place to level up your English. The abundance of courses catering for any language demand might leave you uncertain which one to choose. LinguaTrip will help!
Dublin is the city you should visit at least once. The Guinness Brewery and 1000 + pubs are enough to make the city a shrine for tourists. But Dublin has a lot more: ongoing social and cultural events, numerous walking routes, parks, and free museums. And of course amiable and somewhat childish Dubliners. That’s why English learners from all over the world come to Dublin every year not only to get the taste of the local atmosphere but also to study the language.
LinguaTrip.com will share with you everything we know about Dublin language schools and programs.
First things first. Before we tell you about the variety of courses in Dublin, there’s one thing we’ve got make clear. Many of you might have heard that Irish accent is the most “nasty” one. It can be extremely difficult to understand, especially if you talk to teenagers or retirees. Well, yes. Irish people don’t speak with RP (Received Pronunciation), but English school teachers can. So all the material will be explained and worked through with a clear British accent.

Before going to another country as a language tourist take care of your visa, accommodation, money and a local SIM-card.
Visa. It should be thought of in advance because the terms of issue are different in different countries. Consult our visa manager to find out what type of visa you need (short- or long-term). We’ll help you to fill up the form, collect and translate all the documents and register for an appointment at the consulate.
Accommodation. Accommodation may be provided by the school or you’ll have to book one on your own. Three options are available: stay with a host family, live in a school residence or find lodging independently. If you want to quickly adapt to living abroad and start practicing English for casual conversations, choose a host family or a school residence. The last option is the most expensive, but the most private.
Money. It’s cheaper to change your local money for euros before the departure. Don’t forget to take some money for excursions and entry tickets to museums or theaters.
Local SIM-card. All the schools will provide you with a high-speed Internet connection, but you may not always have it outside the classroom. So, it’s better to buy a local SIM-card to stay connected at all times.
James Joyce once said “I'm crazy about Dublin. If you went back 3,000 years in my ancestry you wouldn't find a drop of Irish blood in the veins, but I love the place”. And you’ll see why as soon as you immerse into the life of this bustling city that always welcomes English learners.
