I had a really nice host family and I really enjoyed my stay in their house. It’s where you learn things about the real Irish life
English in Action
The ISI “English in Action” summer camp is a fun and exciting way for teenagers to learn English. Located in the city centre just five minutes from O’Connell Street, the programme includes 20 hours tuition per week and over 30 hours of stimulating social & cultural activities. Classes combine General English with task-based lessons where we put English into action through fun activities aimed at building confidence when using English in everyday situations. We offer accommodation with carefully selected host families, 35 minutes from the city centre with direct access to the city by public transport. The activity programme combines sporting, cultural and fun activities designed to keep the students engaged and inspired. Our programme includes activities every afternoon, two evenings per week and one full day bus tour at the weekend, so students will experience a fun packed programme they will remember
The programme includes 20 hours tuition per week which is split between General English and task based projects covering different themes. These themed projects encourage students to develop and improve their communication skills by putting ‘English into Action’. Our highly qualified and experienced teachers have been specially selected for their dynamic and energetic teaching approach which encourages maximum student participation. Sample themed projects include;
Paparazzi: Students research, create and publish the weekly ISI gazette notice board. In teams the ISI Paparazzi decide on article themes, and cover topics and stories included on the social programme and their experiences at school.
Glee: Students must prepare a performance for the weekly talent show. This can be a song, a play, a dance or a comedy act and although structured in format, students are encouraged to be as creative and adventurous as possible
Craic: Students learn about contemporary and traditional Irish culture, from Yeats to U2, and experience Irish culture in a fun and exciting way.
*Craic is an Irish word which translates as fun.
The camp takes place in Belvedere College, a prestigious and historic private high school in Dublin’s city-centre.
