IRISH CULTURE AND ENGLISH LANGUAGE COURSES
"TAKING A COURSE BEFORE MY PLACEMENT GAVE ME MORE CONFIDENCE."
Before embarking on an internship placement, it is ideal to set aside time and invest in a period of Irish cultural orientation and/or English language training.
Irish cultural orientation invites interns to explore and understand cultural and linguistic differences that they will encounter in Ireland. It is an opportunity to learn about the people and history of the country, which will enrich the experience as a whole.
During English training, trainees will improve and sharpen their English-speaking skills while integrating with other trainees and learners.
Training courses are agreed in the early phases of the process. Allowing extra time for training and orientation is beneficial. We can book any length of time from 1 week to 12 weeks, but we find that 2 weeks prior to the start of a placement is most helpful.
