Parents of Past Teenagers Speak

Parents of Past Students express their gratitude

Dear Alan,
From the first stories and pictures our daughter Mirte shared with us we learned that she was having an excellent time in Ireland. We would like to express our deepest gratitude for all the wonderful work you and your staff have done for this. We have also sent an email with our special thanks to the Host Family. Mirte enjoyed the stay in their family very much.

Dear Mr. Williamson,
I want to thank you for giving our Demetrio the possibility to attend your summer course in beautiful Ireland, Now my son has a more positive view of the English language and is very pleased to have met students from other countries. He’d like to return again next year.

Dear Alan,
We would like to thank you very much for the time Isabella had at the summer course. She liked every part of the course, including the lessons, drama, etc., was very lucky with the host family and to find new friends. She was so happy about the course that her brother would like to come next year.
As parents we very much appreciated the organisation including the pick-up at Dublin Airport, the information you gave beforehand and the e-mail exchange we had.

Dear Alan,
First of all, I’d like to thank you for your brilliant care for our children. They were so happy to be in Ireland. They liked all the activities which were waiting for them. They like sports activities so it was a good choice to go to your course. My children also told me, they love their Host Families, their hospitality, kindness, cooking. They were so satisfied that started make plans to come back next year.
Thank you so much.
Best wishes,
-Lenka from Slovakia, August 2015

Dearest Alan,
We met Giulia at the airport yesterday evening and we have found her grown-up, enriched and beautiful-looking.
She is missing Ireland … the English course  … the activities … the kind care … all the new friends … Bébhinn  … the loving-kindness … meals … water … air …
We are thankful to you, to the Host Family and to everybody on your team.
Best regards,

Dear Alan,
We would like to thank you for the three great weeks our boys had in Ireland. They both enjoyed it very much. For Pepijn it was, again, a great experience; he had even more fun than last year. Gijs had some worries before the course but in the last week he kept calling home and saying that he wanted to stay in Clare and not go home. They will always remember the time they spent in Ireland. The boys made a lot of friends and are continuing their contacts on Facebook. They miss Ireland very much.

There are many, many more e-mails from parents but this at least gives you a flavour of their feelings.
