Our philosophy at Shannon Academy of English is that learning English is more than learning the language itself; it is equally about understanding and appreciating its related cultures. That’s why, at Shannon Academy, a key ingredient in all of our English language programmes is the provision of a lot of both academic and extracurricular activities and structured teaching and learning strategies from a curriculum that gives students a feel for “Irishness” and Irish culture.
Every student and group that we welcome to Shannon Academy is made to feel part of our school community, and our host-family network is carefully selected to ensure all our students enjoy their stay here in a friendly and warm, Irish family environment. We have years of experience of working with students from many countries around the world. We work closely with all of our agencies and customers to tailor-make our courses and programme content to each group’s needs and to provide excellent value for money for them, delivering excellence in tuition and cultural experience.
We are fully insured and are compliant with all national health and safety regulations. Our unique location, in the heart of Ireland and at the centre of everything, gives our students easy access to some of Ireland’s most interesting and iconic tourist and cultural sites and experiences, and our programme of activities, day trips and excursions is testament to our central location.
