Well, you are probably wondering what a One-to-One Immersion
Course is all about! What's the tutor like? Where does he or she live?
When do the lessons take place? etc.
Say for example, you have decided on a 20 hour general
English course in Dublin for one week. Remember to tell your tutor
when you will be arriving well in advance of your course and do not
forget to book your flights to arrive at your tutor's home in the afternoon.
On your arrival in Dublin on Sunday, unless you have asked for an
airport transfer, you can take a taxi or coach to your tutor's house
- a 25- 60 minute trip depending
on the location of your tutor. You will be met at the local coach stop if taking a coach. You will be welcomed by the family and made to feel
at home. Sunday evening is usually spent relaxing and getting used
to your new surroundings.
Your one-to-one lessons take place from 9 am to 1 pm Monday to Friday
with one or two short breaks for coffee, tea or refreshment of your choice. Your level will be assessed
and your specific needs identified by your tutor in the first lesson.
Do not worry as your tutor will carefully consult with you to ensure
that those issues important to you will be studied. During the morning
there will be many different activities covering
speaking, pronunciation, listening, and a little grammar to name a few! The lessons will be varied
and at a speed suitable to you so that you should never feel bored or stressed! You
will be learning and practising English from the first moment. Some homework is recommended for the next day to allow practice of language covered

to explore the city or surrounding area with your tutor. This will give you an opportunity to do some sightseeing and

to see etc.
Each day there will be a review of the previous day's

will be covered and you will be encouraged to use the language learned
in speaking practice. All relevant language skills will be covered and
