ESL Courses

ESL Courses (English as a foreign language)

For the first time in Fermoy, a wide range of English as a Second Language classes for both adults and children will be available. Courses will be specially designed using the latest communicative methods and materials to cater for the demands of all those living, studying and working in a second language environment whatever their current level of English.

For primary school children, after-school classes will be available where the emphasis will be on learning the social and academic language necessary to fully integrate in a safe and friendly environment. The children will be provided with the opportunity to learn and communicate without the fear of taking up too much of the teacher’s time and will be supported and encouraged by experienced and qualified language learning experts.

After-school classes for secondary school pupils will have a strong emphasis on academic language and will help ease the transition through school by preparing the pupils for the exacting English language demands of the school curriculum without ignoring their social need for language. Once more, they will be afforded the opportunity to develop in a non-threatening atmosphere which will further aid integration.

Adult classes will take place during the day and in the evenings. Adult courses will be specially tailored to fit the needs of the group.
