All of the courses and programmes we run at Shannon Academy of English are designed with the specific needs of the students in mind.

  • Course content is innovative and engaging, to provide meaningful, interactive, English language tuition focusing on spoken discourse.
  • At Shannon Academy of English, language classes are small – a maximum of fifteen students per class – and all teachers hold the internationally and well-recognised Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) qualification.
  • We firmly believe in providing the student with the ability to assess their own level of English and map out a personal plan to advance to the next level.
  • At all times, we aim to balance learning and fun in the classroom and to provide interesting activities and cultural experiences.
  • All our students are placed with kind and welcoming host families or, in some cases, in high-quality, self-catering accommodation.
  • We have an open-door policy for all staff, families, students and companies and are available 24/7.
