Una modalidad de nuestros cursos de idiomas en el extranjero son los cursos con monitor acompañante pensados principalmente para aquellos niños  jóvenes que realizan por por primera vez un curso en el extranjero, ya que ir acompañados de un monitor y de otros alumnos les ayudará a sentirse más cómodos. Este pasado verano 2017, hemos realizado dos cursos con monitor acompañante, uno a Oakham (Inglaterra) y otro a Rathdown (Irlanda). Aquí os dejamos un pequeño vídeo resumen de la experiencia de nuestros alumnos en este curso: Estos cursos se realizan en grupo y tienen un monitor incluido que acompaña a los alumnos día a…

Hello families… and good bye Rathdown! With a great nostalgia and sadness, here I am writing the last post of what has been an incredible adventure. The kids are sad as well, because this fifteen days, that have been a new and fantastic experience for them, are coming to an end. I’m sure they have plenty of things to explain to you. Yesterday was the last day in Rathdown school. The day went as usual: breakfast at 8:00 am, first English lesson at 9:00 am, then a 30 minutes break, and more English classes until 12:30 am. At 13:00 pm…

Hi there! How are you families? You will probably be getting ready to welcome back your children… but I don’t want them to go! I can’t believe that the two weeks are almost gone! Anyway, your kids are definitely enjoying their stay in Rathdown and will do that until the last minute before taking the plane back to Barcelona. On Wednesday, children woke up as usually and had breakfast before class. Then, they took their daily 3 hours lessons and had some free time before having lunch. In the afternoon program, they had a visit to the Dalkey Castle with…

Hello families! Welcome back! We are starting a new week and soon you will have your children back… But let’s not pre-empt things! We still have a few days to enjoy here in Ireland! On Monday children started the new lessons. They are refreshed after a long and fun weekend. The progress reports of the last week were good for all the kids in English Summer and the teachers seemed very happy. They are doing their best and I will encourage them to keep this great attitude until the end. We had for lunch a very cool menu: The classic…

Hello families, it’s me again! Saturday was a lovely shopping day! One week ago, children enjoyed so much in Dublin city, but we spent most of the time visiting the city and walking around, so the children couldn’t do a lot of shopping. Hence, we decided to go back to the Irish capital exclusively for shopping! We woke up and had breakfast later than usual, and got ready to go. At 10 am we were leaving the school in direction to Gleangeary station. Once there, we took a train straight to Dublin that brought us in a flash to the…
