Location


Accommodation

  • Homestay
    One of the best ways to learn more about the people of Ireland and England is to choose homestay accommodation. Family life is informal and the people are welcoming, friendly and talkative, so students will have plenty of opportunities to practise their English. The homestays are carefully chosen by the school's Accommodation Officers and all homestays have been visited and approved by them. Students will live in a house with a garden in a pleasant suburb close to good public transport. Students travel to and from school by bus or train. Having chosen a homestay suitable for them, details will be sent and the school would suggest students make contact with them to confirm their arrival time. Students will have a light breakfast and evening meal in their homestay. Dinner usually takes place between 6pm and 7pm which allows students to join the evening programme or take part in some of the activities during the long summer evenings. Dublin - accommodation is half board Monday to Friday and full board at weekends. Accommodation is €175 per week and is in single room between October and June. There is a single room supplement of €30 per week between 2nd June and 30 September. Dublin Junior Students - accommodation is full board. 

    Crestfield & Auburn House
    CES have two year-round self-catering houses close to each other in Whitehall (4kms from the city centre). Whitehall is a mature residential area with a wide choice of buses to the city centre. The majority of bedrooms are en-suite with a choice of single, twin and double rooms. A small number have a separate or shared bathroom. All bedrooms have satellite TV, a study desk and free Wi-Fi access. Students share a kitchen and also have a communal living room.

Surrounding Area

  • CES is located in the very heart of Dublin on the same street as Trinity College and Dublin Castle. The school has two prestigious buildings within two minutes’ walk of each other and a short stroll will take students to the cobbled quadrangle of Trinity College or the Georgian splendor of Dublin Castle. The schools are surrounded by all of the best shops, restaurants and cultural attractions.

Facilities

  • The school has a total of 25 pristine classrooms, all with facilities for tape recorders, TV and video. The multi media centre has the most up-to-date technology and software with free broadband internet access, Wi-Fi and personal laptop access points.  A listening centre and self access study library are available and a teacher is on duty every afternoon for advice and guidance on additional study.  The school can also help students prepare for an exam in their own country. The school at CES knows that a comfortable environment and caring staff are essential to effective language learning. The reception area in the entrance hall doubles as a booking office for tours and activities and students are encouraged to join in the visits and in the fun –don’t make the mistake of missing out on what CES and Dublin have to offer! The CES CAFE provides light snacks and drinks. It is the ideal environment to stay and chat to friends after a busy day and our leisure area with plasma screen TV provides up-to-date news throughout the day plus a movie every afternoon.

Ireland CES institute testimonialAt first when I decided to take English courses abroad, I only considered schools in the U.S., English, Australia and Philippines. However, one of my friends recommended me to study in Ireland, a beautiful country in Europe.
Above all, the school is located at the perfect place. The school is located on Dame Street, right below Temple Bar. The school building was modern, clean and well-equipped.
Students can use class materials and study supplies for free at CES. I printed out and organized news articles, and exercise questions for self-studying. It helped a lot!
Students can also lend books for free, with a small rental fee. There is also a study area, where you can discuss with your classmates after class and ask questions to friendly and enthusiastic teachers.
I met new friends and teachers and made wonderful memories with them. Every teacher at the school was friendly, kind and caring.
The classmates were from all over the world so I could meet various people.
After class, every student can join different social and cultural activities. We played soccer every week, and really enjoyed it!
You could find so much more at CES other than this. I made wonderful and unforgettable memories there. I miss CES very much.
-----------------------------
영어 어학연수를 가기로 마음 먹은 이후 이곳 저곳을 알아보는데 보통 영어를 배우러 가면 미국,영국, 호주, 필리핀 정도까지만생각이 안 나기 마련인데 아일랜드라는 나라를 알게 되고 좋은 어학원이 있다 하여 조사해보고 다녀오고 나니 갔다 오길 정말 잘했다는 생각이 드네요~ 우선 지리적으로 위치가 아주 마음에 들었어요. 지도 상에서 템플바바로 아래에 있는 Dame Street에 위치해 있고요. 건물은총 3개를 사용하는데 건물 모두 깔끔하고 좋았어요.
CES어학원은 프린트를 무료로 사용할 수 있었어요. 종이 또한 준비할 필요도 없었고요. 저 같은 경우에는 수업자료정리,공부하면서 필요한 이것저것 자료들을 정리하고 만드는 걸 좋아해서 프린트를 많이 쓰는 편인데 덕분에 정말 잘 사용했던것 같아요 ㅋㅋDVD와 책을 보증금을 내고 무료로 대여도 할 수 있고요 소규모로공부할 수 있는 공간도 있었는데 항상 선생님 한 분이 계셔서 공부하다 질문을 할 수도 있었고요~
그리고 가장 중요한 학원 수업분위기와 선생님들 그리고 친구들!  다행히도 정말 학원 선생님들이 다 유쾌하시고 친절하시고 세심하게 학생들을지도해 주셨어요
또 한 국적에 치우 치지 않고 다양한 국적의 친구들을 많이 사귈 수 있었어요.
그렇게 즐겁게 수업을 마치고 방과 후 에는 친구들과 함께 학원에서 하는 액티비티도 참여했었어요 봄, 여름, 가을까지는 매주 피닉스 파크 에서 축구가 있었는데 전 축구를하진 않았지만 구경 하는건 좋아해서 많이 놀러 가고 그랬어요!
그 밖에도 정말 좋은 친구들과 즐거운 추억을 만들고 온거 같아 한국에 돌아온 지금도 생각이 정말 많이 나네요~~
-----------------------------------------
英語の語学研修行くことに決心した後、あちこちを調べてみましたが、普通、英語の語学留学というとアメリカ、イギリス、オーストラリア、フィリピン位しかまでしか思いつかなかったのですが、アイルランドという選択肢を知り、行って来れて本当に良かったです。
まず、地理的な位置が非常に気に入りました。Dame Streetにあって建物は3つ使用しましたが、すべてすっきりして良かったです。
CES語学学校は、プリントを無料でできました。ペーパーを用意する必要もなく、授業資料の整理などを良く整理できました。私は特に、勉強しながら必要な資料を整理して作成することが好きなので、プリントが無料なのはかなり助かりました。
DVDと本もデポジットを払えば無料で貸し出しもしてもらえて、小さい勉強できるスペースもありました。
常に先生の一人がいて、勉強しながら質問をすることもありました〜
そして最も重要な学校の雰囲気と先生方とお友達!幸いなことに、本当に先生方が面白く親切で丁寧に指導してくれました。
また、ある国籍に偏ることなく、さまざまな国籍の友達をたくさん作ることができました。そして楽しく授業を終え、放課後に友達と一緒に学校主催のアクティビティにも参加しました。
春、夏、秋まで毎週フェニックスパークでサッカーがあったので見物によく遊びに行きました!
そのほかにも、本当に良い友達と楽しい思い出を作って来ました。日本に帰ってきた今でもしょっちゅう思い出して恋しいです~

今天想跟大家分享關於愛爾蘭的遊學日記,在課堂上常會玩有趣的遊戲,老師不論怎麼樣都會鼓勵你做的很好。學校在每天也會有不同的活動,像我有和同學一起參加愛爾蘭的球類運動,也有和學校的旅行團一起去滑雪,感覺生活很多采多姿又沒有考試的壓力。
後來我離開時,同學有幫我們這群辦歡送會,甚至在學校認識的台灣同學到現在都還有連絡。感覺跟不同國家的同學上課很開心,也可以了解很多有別於台灣的不同的世界。

住寄宿家庭,不過離學校搭公車通勤要三十分鐘,每天都會經過大橋,看到漂亮的海和無數艘帆船。我住的房間非常奢華,很大又一個人睡雙人床,還有一張書桌。對於住宿有一些限制,不過大致上還不錯,我有三個室友,偶爾也會和他們一起出去走走。
都柏林就是一個大都市,雖然也有一些不錯的景點,也可以在路上看到各式各樣各個國家的人,這人多車多的大城市,還真不習慣,我花了好幾天才適應過來。這次是我第一次自己一個人出國,除了在愛爾蘭待兩個月唸語言學校,結束後我還再到旅行。感覺這趟旅程最大的收穫是做了自己以前不敢做的事。在唸語言學校的期間,我周末都會自己安排各個景點去自助旅行,在旅行前不僅要做好功課,到了當地也要靠著地圖慢慢摸索,或是問旅遊服務中心。
真的非常推薦大家去愛爾蘭念語言學校唷,一定會有很多收穫,一訂值回票價~~

僕はなるべく英語の環境に身を置きたかったので、日本人が少ないのは絶対条件でした。

まさしくcesは日本人が少なくクラスに僕1人だけ日本人でした。とても学びやすかったです。
授業では発言重視のスタイルだったので会話力がめきめき伸びているのが実感できました。
さらには、ホームステイをしていたのでご飯を食べる時も家族のみんなと楽しく話しながら
食事できたのも良かったです。
学校の立地もよくダブリン自体も落ち着いていて住みやすい街でした。
お酒も好きなのでパブでみんなとまた盛り上がりたいです。
