Access English Campus has been hosting students since 1976 and its prestige and immense experience is widely appreciated. Open for Summer English language learning for mixed-nationality students between the ages of 10 and 18 years, it offers participants a personal opportunity to practice the language, forge their developing character, live with their peers, learn about other cultures and become confident in speaking everyday English. Our extra-curricular activities emphasise the use of English and learning about Irish culture and history, along with visiting places of interest on scheduled afternoons and weekends. Evening activities include role play, cinema, situational English, conversation workshops, blind dating, language competitions, karaoke, quizzes, treasure hunts, talent shows, Irish music and dancing. Students also submit projects based on research and interviews with native-speakers of English during their stay in the city. Teachers monitor and help students with this work. Students live in a modern complex with access to the college via a private pathway. The residence is divided into apartments with either individual or twin private rooms, along with a kitchen/sitting-room. Some rooms are en-suite and others have a maximum ratio of a bathroom per two people. The kitchen has got all modern conveniences eg, microwave, oven, fridge, iron and television. Bedrooms are supplied with bed linen that is changed weekly and towels that are changed several times a week. Within the compound there is a self-service laundry with washing machines and spin-dryers that are used once a week. Students are usually back in the residence by 10pm, depending on the daily programme. Rooms are allocated according to group, gender and age. Group leaders live in the same residence. The Course Director, teachers and group leaders are responsible for students during their stay in Ireland. They organize the classes and the extra-curricular activities, mindful that the welfare and participation of every student is important. Parents, if they wish, can speak with group leaders before the commencement of the programme to discuss any matter that they consider opportune regarding their child’s trip to Ireland. Personal contact between management and pupils is constant throughout the summer schedule. Access to the residence complex, apartments and individual rooms is by electronic keycard specifically assigned to each student. Group leaders possess a master keycard that permits them access to all areas to ensure the safety and well-being of the students under their care. The residence complex is monitored by closed-circuit cameras 24 hours a day. Students can immediately contact their group leaders at any time during the day or night.
