English Language School - Education as a Foreign Language Activity Holidays
Language Holidays in Ireland
Share English Language School and Adventure Centre offers Quality Teaching, Culture, Activities, Accommodation, Meals and Fun all in the one location!
Our aim is to provide a unique opportunity for students to practice and improve their English in relevant situations, experience adventure sports and interact with other Irish children and Irish instructors.
Our British Council Approved language programmes are suitable for individuals or for closed group sizes of 12 or more and for ages 12 - 16 years and up. All teachers are Celta qualified with experience of teaching international students.
Only 2 hours from Dublin and 1.5 hours from Belfast, our Centre is located just outside Lisnaskea on a 65 acre site in County Fermanagh on the edge of Upper Lough Erne, one of the most beautiful inland waterways in Europe.
SHARE - Ireland's largest residential adventure centre, is very busy during the summer months with international students from various different nationalities and local groups creating a great way to socialise with other children and adults in an English immersion course.
Lisnaskea is a safe and friendly Northern Irish village near Enniskillen which is very close to the border of Northern Ireland and Ireland. With its rich cultural history, Fermanagh is steeped in myth and legend making it a unique Irish cultural experience. Students, staff and instructors form a close bond throughout their stay leaving students with a lasting memory and learning experience that will stay with them forever. Many students return to volunteer and work at Share in future years. For more information on language courses in Northern Ireland please contact Rory
Share offers a unique, total immersion activity-based course for young learners. Local and international students are mixed together on an environmentally friendly adventure programme which adheres to the ethics of leave no trace, and includes activities such as Canoeing, Kayaking, Windsurfing, Sailing, Film Making and overnight Canoe and Camping trips with Bushcraft and Survival Skills. These activities form the basis of the programme which means a large proportion of the language learning component takes place outdoors. During the programme, students have the opportunity to gain internationally recognised qualifications in a variety of outdoor sports.
Qualified English language teachers accompany professional instructors on all activities to ensure an authentic, immersion experience and guarantee language learning support. Teachers give ongoing, dynamic tutorials throughout the day and students get the chance to apply their existing knowledge of English in a real context. More importantly, they learn language needed to communicate in an everyday situation, to clarify meaning, to ask questions, to explain, to greet, to interact and everything else that arises when interacting with local speakers of the target language. Each day ends with a 2-hour classroom session to review the language that has been practiced and ensure learning objectives have been achieved.
The course includes full-board accommodation, evening and weekend activities and excursions, and airport transfers on arrival and departure from either Belfast or Dublin airports.
