  • Really good mix in classes. The book is super interesting (so happy I can keep it!) It is also a good age group in the class. I loved to go on the activities with my class.

  • I love my class! Best team ever and an award winning school. I really enjoyed the duration of the classes, the location and the staff. I just spoke in English here and I can say my English improved a lot.

  • It was a good experience in Apollo Language Centre. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the teachers were very good. I made a lot of friends from different nationalities. In the end I had a good experience in Apollo and I hope I can come again.

  • Actually before I joined Apollo I had been searching for the best school in Ireland to improve my English. I had asked many students about their experiences in Apollo and other schools. They advised me to choose Apollo. Honestly within a few weeks my language improved more than I expected. It was a family environment, not only a language school. Many thanks to all the staff there.

  • The perfect school in Dublin if you want to improve your English! Great teachers and all the staff from the school are really polite! Best school ever.
