If you want to meet nice people, and are looking for a language course or a useful and promising internship placement in a foreign-speaking country, then you are in the right place.
We specialise in organising internships with well-known local businesses in Ireland that are looking for committed interns.

We can also arrange language courses on location before the start of the internship. Although many of our interns hadn’t mastered the native language or only had basic skills before beginning their internship they now speak the language fluently. 

Language courses: 
In preparation for your internship we can offer language courses in the native tongue of the requested country. Because quality is very important to us we work together exclusively with language schools in Ireland that are accredited centres and are registered with one of the following institutes: British Council, ACCET /TOESEL/TOEFL / IELTS / TOEIC/ CELT certification and other. This seal of quality guarantees a professional teaching level and well-equipped schools. 
On our website you will find all the information you require about organising your internship in a foreign country. In addition to this we also provide you with information about the various countries and people.

The minimum duration for most internships is 12 weeks. The majority of companies prefer interns to complete longer placements. 

We can offer internships in almost all fields of work. Of course every city has its own special strengths. Simply let us know in which sector you would like your internship to be in. 

To ensure that each intern has the benefit of a contact person on location we have co-ordinators in all the cities where we offer tailor-made internships. This service is included in the price and can be taken advantage of during the entire stay, regardless of how long this may be.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send us an email: 
or simply give us a call: Tel. +353 85 105 00 24

What better place to learn English than Ireland, a country well known for the warmth and friendliness of its people, the stunning natural beauty of its landscapes and coasts and the richness of its music, theatre and literary traditions? George Bernard Shaw claimed that the best English is spoken in Ireland. With many of the most famous names of English literature being Irish – Yeats, Beckett, Wilde, Joyce – and with the Irish being famous for the art of conversation it is easy to understand why.

Large Island
Ireland is the third-largest island in Europe. It lies in the Atlantic Ocean and is composed of the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), a state which covers five sixths of the island (south, east, west and north-west), and Northern Ireland; part of the United Kingdom, which covers the north-eastern sixth of the island. The population of the island is approximately 5.8 million people (2001); 4.1 million in the Republic of Ireland (1.6 million in Greater Dublin) and 1.7 million in Northern Ireland (0.8 million in Greater Belfast).

Ireland is divided into four provinces: Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster. Across Ireland, the 32 counties are still used in sports and in some other cultural areas and retain a strong sense of local identity. Ireland's least arable land lies in the south-western and western counties. These areas are largely spectacularly mountainous and rocky, with beautiful green vistas.

Culture and Tradition

Now a modern and prosperous European country, Ireland still treasures its strong cultural and historic traditions. In fact, the traditional and the modern sit comfortably side by side. Ireland is a safe, un-crowded country with clean waters and clean air. It provides an ideal location for a wide variety of outdoor sports and pastimes, among them fishing, horse riding, sailing, golf and hill-walking. For the less active, there is a range of indoor social and cultural activities too.

If you would like to go to Ireland to experience the culture whilst improving your English through an internship, we can help. 
With our extensive network of companies and contacts we are in the perfect position to offer you all the support you need in your application for an internship in Ireland.
