Dublin Centre of Education is an educational institution First and foremost, the DCE English Language School has an optimal location right in the city centre, which allows students access to the shopping centres, the food stores, the Luas, the buses, and more one stone’s throw away. This is vastly important because when students stay short-term, not only are they here to improve their English, but also to visit a new country. Therefore, location is always a priority when choosing a place to study.
The 25-week program is a General English course that’s spread out over various levels, from Beginner to Advanced. These classes compose of 15 classes compulsory every week,
We have extremely well-qualified teachers, with at lot of experience. They have all been certified with the CELTA certification and equivalent. Their conduct is extremely professional and organised, which gives the students the learning tools they need to progress.
Our student base is widely multicultural. The majority of our students are from Europe, including Spain, France, Italy, and more, but we also have nationalities from all over the world, including Brazil, Mexico and more. All students are over 18 years of age.
Students who are offered a place must go through a mandatory entrance exam. This involves a small written piece about themselves, a multiple choice questionnaire and a 5-minute conversation. After this, the students will be placed in the class that’s appropriate to their level of English. For long-term students, an end of course exam is required in order to get their certificate.
The school offers weekly outdoor activities. These activities include tourist sight-seeing where students can visit Dublin’s main attractions. For example, seeing the museums, Dublin castle, Kilmainham Gaol prison, Killiney beach, even some movies, and of course, the pubs.
