These programmes combine English Language tuition in the mornings and sporting activities with local clubs in the afternoon. In addition, students have two cultural trips per week. This programme is the ideal way for students to fully immerse themselves in the language by interacting with Irish teenagers and meeting new friends while improving their sports skills.
Students take part in the Classic Junior Summer School tuition programme and then in the afternoons attend the sailing programme with Irish teenagers. Malahide, on the coast of Dublin, is an ideal base for students to learn about water sports. Malahide Yacht Club is just a 15 minute walk from our centre. The estuary itself is a perfect place to learn any of these activities as it’s quite sheltered and the water is not excessively deep – most adults and teenagers are never out of their depth. Each afternoon will include 3 hours of sailing using double handed topaz (2 person boats) and 420’s and Omega’s (larger and faster boats). All levels can be catered for from total beginner to advanced and all instructors are Qualified ISA (Irish Sailing Association) instructors. In addition to English language tuition and sailing, students will take part in Friday and Saturday cultural tours.
