What Our Students Say

Alice Tuttino 18yrs,
I spent two weeks in Ireland with language and culture west in 2019, and I was really impressed by the experience I had. I really wanted to live again this adventure in 2020, but I couldn’t because of Covid-19. Aisling offered me the opportunity of an online english course, and I was really pleased to take part in it. We had some lessons and we talk about how we felt in that period (lockdown was just finished in Italy, where I live), and we learn new grammar and vocabulary. In the end I felt like my english was improved thanks to the online course, and I’d recommend it to anyone who would like to practice their language despite the pandemic!

Una piccola grande scuola dove ci si sente in famiglia”
Abbiamo avuto la fortuna di far frequentare i corsi del Language and Culture West at Donmar Cottage a nostra figlia tutte le estati dagli 11 ai 18 anni. In un ambiente informale e ricco di calore umano, dove ha potuto conoscere persone di ogni età e nazionalità. Il loro abbinare studio ed esperienze con attività quotidiane ,ha permesso a nostra figlia di raggiungere un livello di conoscenza di inglese da consentirle di completare gli studi superiori in Irlanda e adesso di frequentare il college a Galway.
Consigliato a tutti ,a chi deve iniziare e a chi deve perfezionare il proprio inglese. Janet,Donal e Aisling accolgono tutti come in una famiglia.
