About Us

At Cork English Academy we offer our students an all-embracing experience, combining the best English language training with an exciting social activity programme, beautiful facilities, excellent accommodation options and a caring support network in the centre of Cork. We look forward to welcoming you to our school and to the beautiful City of Cork.


General English Plus

The General English 20 or 15 hour per week group course in the morning is supplemented with either 5, 10 or 15 hours of individual lessons in the afternoon. The individual lessons give the student the opportunity to focus in greater detail on their own particular needs and goals. Examples: Business English, Examination Preparation and English for Specific Purposes.


Examination Preparation

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and First Certificate in English (FCE) Cambridge ESOL examination preparation classes are offered in the afternoons and are available as an add-on to students who are studying General English classes in the mornings.


Work Placement

Students combine English language tuition with a work placement in an Irish enterprise appropriate to their qualifications and experience. This provides participants with an excellent method of learning and using English in a practical way.
