The classrooms were a bit to small, the classroom downstair was not confortable. We didn't have enough natural light!
The classes were lively and very nice. We had different parts (reading, writing, speaking, listening) in every different class. The C1 class in the early afternoon (preparation for the exam) was very challenging for me. But I appreciated every lesson!
First of all, thanks a lot for your kindness to give me some useful information related to my arriving in Dublin. I took English Course in ISE for 5 weeks. In general, I would like to say that the course was ok, but it did not make me happy as I expected, for some following reasons:
Firstly, sometimes the lesson was started late. It seems to me no good coordination. The process learning in the class room was good. However, the teacher did not engage the student very much. For example, the teacher let students talked too much as they wanted even no correlated to a lesson or that was not conversation class. So, it wasted time, and it made no good progress for other students to learn more. In addition, there was very few homework. During my five weeks of studying, it was only two home works. Moreover, during the lesson, there was a teacher eating while lesson, and not in the break time. Sometimes it was an inconvenience atmosphere.
For the conversation class, it was good. There was a good topic to speak, to discuss. Also, there was a good atmosphere between students and teacher. It makes student enjoy the conversation. The only thing that I would like to suggest it is the conversation class is from the different levels of English (Pre-mediate, intermediate, upper intermediate and advance). So, sometimes it was boring because of different levels and it made no progress for those who are at the high level.
Regarding accommodation, the family house was good and great. I like it very much because it helped me to study. However, there was unclear information between the school and house family. I was very disappointed with accommodation process for refunding my accommodation cost, I had to wait for 3 weeks for getting refunding accommodation from the school.
