|Carefully designed, innovative syllabus:||The aim of the course is to improve the communicative English language capability of each individual enabling them to function in English with confidence. Our teachers will focus on developing the students communication skills, with a particular emphasis on the key skills: speaking, pronunciation and listening. There will be a strong emphasis on Irish culture, history and geography. |
Our innovative topic based syllabus reflects our continuing research in language acquisition, learner autonomy and effective teaching practice. Students help sel ect the topics and work with the teacher to establish the content of the lessons – making lessons more meaningful, useful and fun.
All of our fully qualified experienced teachers here at Swan Training Institute have as a minimum a University Degree and a post graduate qualification in English Language teaching; many also hold a masters.
We organise a reliable, efficient transport service whereby we can arrange for the student to be welcomed and collected at Dublin airport and dropped to a pick up point where they will be collected by their host family.
