ISI won the English Language School Europe Award in 2014 & 2016 (and has been nominated every year since 2012) and is recognised by ACELS, a service of Quality and Qualifications Ireland, for English language education.
Meetinghouse Lane Centre is located in the city centre in an 18th century stone warehouse, converted into a school in 2001. Its interior combines original stone walls and wooden floors with a sleek and modern design. The walls are covered by inspirational art pieces and murals by local artists. Both upcylced and designer furniture are used in the student recreational areas to create a ‘cool café/bar’ feeling.
Parnell Square Centre is housed in a beautiful, redbrick, Georgian building just 10 minutes’ walk from Meetinghouse Lane. The building combines large & ornate period rooms with modern furniture & artwork to create a wonderful and authentic learning space. The area around the school is steeped in Irish history, with many of the neighbouring buildings playing host to significant scenes of the Easter rising of 1916, Ireland’s fight for independence.
We offer a range of programmes to suit all requirements, combining the basic language skills with a full range of specialist classes and internationally renowned examinations. These programmes are suitable for anyone who wants to improve their English, no matter what level or ability and cover General English, Business English and Examination practice.
General English Courses
We offer an exciting range of General English courses for all levels, from elementary to advanced. Some courses can be taken in the afternoon, for a lower price. Students may study for any duration, taking from 15 to 30 lessons per week. All programmes provide a good foundation in the main linguistic skills, with a strong focus on communication.
The 20 – 25 hour programmes allow students to focus on key areas including conversation fluency, business English and examination preparation.
Business English Courses
The Business English course incorporates a General English 15 course plus 5 hours per week of a business elective. These electives are designed to widen the students knowledge of specific vocabulary and grammar in business situations.
The Writing Skills component prepares students for written communication while the Interpersonal and Communication Skills component prepares them for verbal interactions.
Academic Year Programme
These long-term programmes for non-EU students are designed to allow students to progress through at least one level over an academic year period and to gain a professional, internationally recognised English qualification. We offer a 15 or 20 hour programme with the option to study in the morning, or in the afternoon at a discount.
The 15-hour programmes provide a good foundation in the main linguistic skills, with a strong focus on communication. The 20 hour programme builds on the 15-hour foundation by offering 5 extra elective lessons, in a range of disciplines including conversation fluency, business English and examination preparation. The classes are integrated with our General English programmes, allowing for a greater nationality mix of EEA and non-EEA students.
Exam Preparation Courses
ISI offers exam preparation in Cambridge FCE, CAE and IELTS, throughout the year as part of our 20 hour per week General English programme. This option includes our 15-hour per week General English course with an additional 5 hours devoted to exam preparation using specific examination materials and papers.
Our group courses cover most topics very thoroughly. However, if you feel you need extra study, or if you wish to study an ‘English for Special Purposes’ course, such as Legal English, Medical English or Technical English, then one-to-one lessons might suit you best. Each lesson is 60 minutes in duration and the conent can be decided between you and your teacher, by filling in a needs analysis sheet.
