English as a Foreign Language
The English as a Foreign Language courses use a communicative approach where students practice the four key skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. Grammar will also be taught. Materials are supplied except for a textbook. Class size is limited and groups are taught at Intermediate (Course Code: 87) and Advanced (Course Code: 92) levels.
Preparation for IELTS: Intensive
(Course Code: 82). The International English Language Testing System examination is a requirement for non-native speakers of English who wish to use their professional qualifications in an English-speaking country, and also to study at degree, masters or doctorate level. Preparation is offered for all parts of the examination, which takes place in University College Dublin (UCD), among other venues. This course offers students the chance to prepare for the IELTS examination in a concentrated way – 5 hours of class per week over two evenings.

Beginners Spanish, Italian, French and Russian
Beginners Spanish (Course Code: 80/94), Beginners Italian (Course Code: 96) and Beginners French (Course Code: 85) are for those wishing to learn the basics of the languages so they can communicate when they meet native speakers, both here in Dublin, or on holidays/business.

This term we are offering Beginners Russian (Course Code: 88) and Continuation Beginners Russian (Course Code: 89).
