#Study&Work – English School Ireland

Study and Work in Limerick – 25 Weeks Programme!

The Academic Year Programme for Non-EEA students is a 25 weeks tuition course within an 8 month study period with 15 hours of tuition per week and is suitable for students needing a student study visa to Ireland and we offer assistance for visas for this course.

Once you have registered onto this programme we will issue you with a letter of Acceptance which you may use to apply for your Study Visa.

As a visa student in Ireland, you must register as a full-time student with the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB – The Irish Police) and then you will also be permitted to work part-time in Ireland (up to a maximum of 20 hours a week and full-time during vacation periods) to support yourself.

At the Rightword Institute, we will help and guide you with this process.

Our highly qualified English School teachers set students clear learning objectives and use the latest modern teaching techniques to provide language practice in speaking, writing, listening and reading, to improve English pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary.

An English School in Ireland which develops all aspects of the English language including speaking, pronunciation, listening, grammar, reading and writing. The focus is on improving your ability to communicate clearly and effectively.

During your English School course, you will be expected to participate as much as possible and work individually, in pairs and in groups as well as take part in whole class activities.

For our General English course, the focus is on getting our students speaking and communicating to each other through enjoyable and interactive activities. You will also develop your use of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.

We adapt our lessons to the needs of the class and supplement the use of textbooks with authentic materials including digital resources and news articles.

Our General English course will also provide our students learning English in Ireland with a better knowledge of the local people and culture, enabling them to become more actively involved with the unique Irish way of life.

At Rightword Institute, you will maximise your English language skills at a pace that works for you. Whether you are an Elementary or an Advanced student, you will improve quickly and gain confidence in speaking, listening, reading and writing in English.

Upon completion of the course, schools issue a certificate of attendance with the number of weeks undertaken and English level achieved.

We have a dedicated social programme coordinator who organises activities, tours and visits throughout the year for our students. These activities are a scheduled part of almost all courses and normally occur after class in the afternoon and evening.

We also organise day and weekend trips to scenic areas outside Limerick, such as Connemara, Clare and Galway.
