“I’m looking back to my 1 to 1 stage at the Clare English Language School only with great pleasure and saisfaction. I had the chance to stay with an Irish hostess where I felt at home and where I heard many things about the Irish way of life. Your “tailor-made” lessons helped me to speak and to understand more easily and they gave me precious information and impressions of Irish literature. The afternoon (and evening!) programme was especially rich. You gave me a very beautiful and various approach to the country, showing me very typical areas, so that my only question is: didn’t you work too hard? Thank you!”
