Our English Courses

We provide year-round English courses at all levels. We are specialists in Cambridge English and IELTS exam preparation courses which equip students with the English qualifications needed to secure themselves a better job, career or for entry to university.

Our experienced teachers, superb nationality mix and bright, well equipped modern school mean our students have a memorable English learning experience in Dublin, all at the very best price in Dublin guaranteed.


Cambridge English Exams

The English Academy School of English is an Authorised University of Cambridge Open Examination Centre, the only one in Dublin City Centre. We were the first active University of Cambridge Computer-based test centre in Ireland. We offer paper and computer-based versions of all the popular Cambridge English Examinations all year round.


Teacher Training (Cambridge CELTA)

The English Academy is also a Cambridge English Teaching Awards Centre running the internationally recognised Cambridge CELTA. If you pick any country in your atlas to go and teach ELT in, you can be pretty much guaranteed that the Cambridge CELTA TEFL qualification will be the one recognised there (including Ireland, of course).
