The best and most cost effective way to learn the English language is to travel to an English speaking country and fully immerse yourself in the local culture and daily life. Homestay with a local family, combined with private lessons from one of our experienced teachers, gives you the best chance of success. When you enrol with us we guarantee that there will be no other speakers of your language staying with your host family.
On this course we have morning English lessons focussed on speaking, listening, writing and reading while the afternoons are reserved for exciting trips with your host family to explore Ireland’s beautiful nature and culture. During these trips you will be listening to and speaking English.You will also have the option to go and explore the locality on your own.

About our Teachers:
Our teachers are all fully qualified secondary school teachers who are qualified to teach English as a foreign language. They have experience in teaching from home and are regularly updated about the newest teaching methods and materials. Our teachers are very open and enjoy sharing their home with people who come over to Ireland to learn English. They are committed to making your language holiday an experience you will never forget!
At CLI we only work with Cambridge and Oxford teaching materials.
CLI reserves the right to match the best host family for your needs and occasionally has qualified teachers coming to your host family to teach, in case there are no qualified teachers available in the host family’s home.
