Galway Language School academic Program follows the guidelines from the “Council of Europe” and “The Common European Framework of Reference”(CEFR) who provides a base for teaching languages and recognising language qualifications.
Our tree options offer a comprehensive course that you can take on your own at any time you want; a course you can take following the tutoring of a real teacher in a virtual classroom and Spanish for children. Students are encouraged to make active use of the language from the first day and to interact with other students. Grammar is use as a tool to reinforce students language skills, so during the class there will be time for both fluency and accuracy practice. As the course progress, you will have to pass quizzes, that need to be approved to be able to move to the following lesson, and then you will be able to take a final test to obtain a certificate of completion.
“The Common European Framework of Reference” divides learners into three levels and six sub-levels. They describe what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing at each level. These categories may be applied to all of the languages spoken in Europe.
All our teachers are native speaker, fully qualified and experienced.
Class size and course cancellations
The minimum class size is 5 and the maximum is 10. Please register early to ensure a place in the course that best fits your schedule. Occasionally we will open a class with more students, depending on the course and needs of the School. Galway Language School reserves the right to cancel a course when less than 8 students have registered. Students registered in a cancelled course will be notified immediately. They will be offered the possibility of transferring their enrolment to another course of the same price range. If no suitable course is available, they will receive a full refund of the fee paid.
Course fees are refundable if requested in writing 3 days before the first class of the course takes place. A 10% of the total course fee will be retained as administration fee. You can e-mail or fax your cancellation request to www.galwaylanguageschool.com.
Unfortunately we cannot accept cancellations by phone or post. We cannot prorate classes or transfer un-used class time to another term.
Attendance is the student’s responsibility. If you are unable to attend a class, please inform your teacher at the next session you can attend. There is no need to call the office. We regret that it is not possible to make up a missed class.
