About Us Immersion Languages


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 that day.

After lunch you will be invited to explore the city or surrounding area with your tutor. This will give you an opportunity to do some sightseeing and make some plans for the following days. You are free to do as you want and your tutor and family will give you advice on where to go and what to see etc.

Each day there will be a review of the previous day's work and practice of any important language areas. Important grammar points will be covered and you will be encouraged to use the language learned in speaking practice. All relevant language skills will be covered and any matters important to you will be part of the course. Your suggestions will always be welcome and taken into account.

You will receive regular feedback from your tutor and your progress will be carefully monitored. Your tutor will make some relevant suggestions for your continuing improvement once the course has finished.

The whole purpose of an Immersion course is to 'immerse' you in the English language while you enjoy the comfort and hospitality of your family. In this way your experience should be a pleasant one and a very satisfying way of improving English. we want your Immersion course to be an experience to remember and hopefully,we will see you again some day!

Remember you are always welcome to stay in touch with us after your course has finished!
