Students live with host families or in the student hostel – the Broadstone Residence. Want to relax in a pub at the end of the day? – that certainly won’t be a problem in Dublin! Countless pubs and restaurants invite you to linger. It’s not good to spend your whole time learning! Enjoy a well-earned break and broaden your horizons with one of the many recreational activities on offer in Dublin.

A typical day at Alpha College Dublin

Oh, no – it’s raining! In Ireland, they have an easy-going attitude towards the weather – it can sometimes get rather damp. But that’s not a problem; you just have to have the right clothing! Nico travels to school in the morning by public transport – it takes him about half an hour. This is the average time for students attending the Alpha College of English.

He wants to get there early today so that he can look something up in the media library that came up in class yesterday. Nico is improving his general English language skills here in Dublin. He chose the course in Dublin because the Irish way of life has always appealed to him. He had always wanted to travel to Ireland. And so, the opportunity of studying at the language school in Dublin was just right for him... He has never regretted his decision. During his stay, he notices the great progress he is making each day in his English language skills. He likes Dublin because of the many young open-minded people he encounters. He spends his free time visiting theatres, concerts, art galleries and museums, or enjoying the nightlife. In Dublin, there is always a lot happening! He finds the traditional Irish music particularly appealing and he goes to concerts as often as he can. Homesick? – Not in Dublin.
