Studying English with Cork English College offers students the opportunity to gain proficiency in English while making friends and experiencing the rich cultural heritage Cork has to offer.

Our qualified and experienced teachers use a variety of published and authentic materials to help students to progress as quickly as possible. New vocabulary is introduced and practised at every stage of the lesson, and particular attention is paid to high frequency, internationally useful words, and phrases.

Special emphasis is given to communicating effectively and accurately, and error correction plays an important role in classes. New language is practised through meaningful speaking tasks and discussions, which include regular integrated work on pronunciation.

You can choose 1 or 2 evenings per week, with classes held on Mondays & Wednesdays from 18:30 – 20:30 (Irish Time) in our main building on St. Patricks Bridge.
