How are the courses structured?
A full English language course cycle is organised around a twelve-week programme which roughly corresponds to a full course book. Students are free to join courses at any point during this cycle depending on your level.
The courses are aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR), the international standard for English language learning: Elementary (A1) to Proficiency (C2).
The online classes offer flexibility and the chance to customise your studies to fit your personal needs and preferences. You will be taught in an inclusive and open environment and receive every help to reach your study goals.
You can study for as long as you want and advance at your own pace. You decide when you feel ready to move levels in consultation with your teacher.

What happens in the online classes?
Live online lessons take place on Zoom and last for 60 minutes. There is a maximum of ten students in any class.
The classes are organised around the latest course books and generally cover one main point of grammar and vocabulary per week. The four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing are all covered.
Follow-up exercises and activities outside of class time are shared through Google Drive and Google Classroom.
The live online classes are interactive and have a strong communicative methodology. You will learn with other students at the same level as you and you will get lots of speaking opportunities to gain confidence and fluency.
Tools such as Zoom breakout rooms provide the opportunity for pair work or small group work, similar to a physical classroom.
The teacher will also introduce you to colloquial language and expressions and guide you through pronunciation work designed specifically for your needs.
What materials are used?
All books and materials are provided free of charge through downloadable PDFs and links.
Before and after each class, you’ll be able to access a wide range of online exercises connected with your live classes, to practise your listening, reading, grammar and vocabulary skills in your own time.
These exercises are an excellent way to gain knowledge of a topic prior to engaging in class discussion, or to help you consolidate what you have learnt in the live class.
What technology will you need?
- a desktop/laptop computer (preferred) or a mobile device (tablet, smartphone)
- a reliable Internet connection
- a headset or headphones with a built-in microphone
- a working webcam
- access to Zoom
- a Gmail account to access Google Classroom activities
Levels, testing & certificates
Before starting any course, you should complete a short online level placement test to get an idea of your current English level.
After completing a 12-week module, students can normally move up to the next level. If you feel you are ready to move up a level earlier, you can contact me at any time. You can also, if you wish, do a level change test.
You will get a certificate of achievement on successful completion of a module. The certificate details your CEFR level and the number of study hours you have completed.
‘Irish Culture & English Language’ Self-access courses
With your online classes, you also get discounted access to digital online courses on ‘Irish Culture and English Language’ at your level. These courses are completely self-access and are based around different Irish cultural topics, with videos, songs, PDFs, quizzes and interactive activities.
You can practise and engage in your own time, learn lots more about Ireland and it’s people and you will get instant feedback to track your progress. In the Discussion Boxes, you can share ideas and interact with other students.
Exam preparation courses
We can offer preparation for IELTS exams, Cambridge (First Certificate, CAE etc,), TOEFL, GMAT / GRE / LSAT (Verbal reasoning & writing sections), TIE and others.
In exam preparation classes, you will improve test-related skills, gain test awareness and learn about test formats and different question types. You will be guided to develop effective test strategies and given tips and techniques to help you perform better on your test day.
