English and Sport Academy

Learning English while practising Sports

IELS  offers English and Sports Academies for children aged 9 to 17 during the Summer with the method Play Sport and learn English. Our Academies have been developed in England and Ireland to allow international athletes to improve the use of English language and their sports skills, in those countries where Sports and English language are expressed at the highest level. This method of combining English and Sport is recommended for those who want to learn English and at the same time to improve and practice their favourite sport or learn a new one. It includes English lessons in the morning, afternoon training sessions and complementary social and cultural activities in the evening. The variety of the programme, its integration with sports and the international environment make it a very effective, well-established and recognised educational method recognised by the Department of Education and Skills in all the English-speaking countries around the world.

English Classes

English courses are organised in collaboration with a well-established international language academy that has been hosting students from all over Europe for over fifteen years. Courses are structured on 5 levels (CEFR), divided into 20 lessons per week, to precisely meet the linguistic and organisational standards imposed by ACELS in Ireland the British Council in the UK.
At the end of the course, students receive a certificate of attendance attesting completion of the course and the level of English achieved.

Course Overview

The English course is designed to cover all the aspects of the English language including the various sub-skills and areas of competence: the basic 4 skills ( Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking), communicative language (e.g. turn-taking, asking for clarification), types of interaction (e.g. obtaining goods and services, interviewing), and more linguistic skills (e.g. vocabulary range, phonological control). The course aims to combining the usage of English with Vocabulary, Grammar & Pronunciation.

Sports Academies

Athletes train for more than 10 hours a week which include theoretical lessons, coaching, work on individual technique; mental strength development, and intelligence and skills; techniques for safe play; developing skills and ways of expressing themselves fit for team play; games and video analysis. Athletes are assisted by professional coaches from the best English and Irish clubs, professional instructors and team building specialists.
The educational objective is to ensure proper sports education while respecting all stages of the physiological and psychopedagogical training of each participant. All skill levels will be taken into consideration and fun will be considered a very important aspect of the course.

Cultural Activities

The complementary cultural activities, held in some afternoons and in the evening, are an integral part of the course and play the role of improving language skills.
A cultural trip is organised once a week, in the afternoon.
Saturday is entirely dedicated to a full day excursion to a place of historical-cultural or naturalistic interest.
Three evenings per weeks there are evening activities such as discos, debates and film.

Sport enhances academic achievement by strengthening character, developing new skills and challenging students to always do their best.

General English Course Highlights

Read more about:

Students generally attend classes in the morning which follow the same layout as a General English Course. There are 15 hours English classes per week held Monday to Friday and split into two 90 minute lessons per day. Class size is restricted to a maximum of 15 students and all levels are available from Elementary (A1) to Advanced (C1).

Two teachers, covering different prearranged areas of the syllabus, work alternately with each class. One teacher takes the first 90-minute session which focuses on language in use, vocabulary and grammar practice. After a short break, the second teacher starts the next 90-minute session which covers conversational practice, pronunciation, listening and speaking. This work share provides variety for the students and allows them to benefit from different personalities and teaching styles. All our teaching staff are university graduates and are qualified to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL).

All of the staff at IELS are committed to offering students the best education during their stay. We inspire students to work diligently to improve in all aspects of the English language.

Our experienced teaching staff are well trained and highly qualified in what they teach. They are up to date with the latest methods in teaching English as a foreign language and combine academic excellence with the sensitivity and receptiveness for each student’s individual needs, talents and potential.

All teachers are university graduates with qualifications in teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and are respected for their knowledge and professionalism.

Classes are on from 9:30 until 13:00 with a 30-minute break at 11:00. After class, there is a 60-minute lunch break. After lunch, depending on the programme, there will be sports, activities or a cultural trip. Students must be ready at the designated time.

The first day in the college is somewhat different to the rest. Students are advised to arrive at 9:00 to allow for unforeseen delays as they may not be familiar with the bus timetable or the route. At 9:30 there will be a short introduction by the camp manager and principal. After there will be an assessment test, which is used to determine the level of English so students can be placed in the appropriate class.

After the test students meet in the main hall again. Here a staff member will go through the college rules and some other important information. The students are then taken on a tour of the college. At the end of the tour, students will be divided into their appropriate classes and attend the second-morning class until lunch time. After lunch students on the general course go on a familiarisation trip, while students on the specialised sports courses have training.

Please note that all students on “Play Sport and Learn English” programme MUST bring their training equipment with them on the first day.

Students on the familiarisation tour will arrive back to the college by approximately 17:00. For further excursions to the city centre, students staying with the host families, do not return to the college but travel directly home to the host family.
Students on “Play Sport and Learn English” programme will finish training at approximately 17:00 – 17:30.

Students will receive the English course materials and workbooks as part of the programme. After completion of the English course, a Certificate of Attendance will be issued to each student. It certifies the progress that has been made and the level of English reached.

Sport Academy Highlights

Read more about:
All participants will be assisted, coached and guided by professional sport coaches, professional players and experienced English teacher. All our teaching and coaching staff are native English speaker. Particular emphasis will be placed on the following topics: individual skills and techniques; mini-unit and team skills; communication and the ability to make decisions. Athletes will learn the essential techniques required to play the game safely, they will learn and develop new skills and ways to express themselves in a team environment. During each sport training session, there will be “humbleness” that comes by working with a group and the “conscientiousness” for the safety and enjoyment of all players and staff involved. Athletes will have more than 10 hours a week of training and interrelated activities, which include educational lessons, coaching, individual skills exercises, development of mental strength, intelligence and sport abilities. Games and training will be analysed through video support (if feasable). Players will also gain a greater understanding of the importance of physical fitness, strength and conditioning and what it is appropriate for young players at any age or stage of the long-term player development continuum. There will be general and specific nutritional talks on how best to eat to be healthy while playing sports.

Extracurricular Activities Highlights

Read more about:

In addition to classes and sport training, athletes go on one half day cultural trip per week. These are normally to local visitor attractions such as galleries, museums, sports stadiums or other popular sites. Younger athletes travel to the locations with their group leader(s) and one or more “IELS” activity leader.
One full day excursion per week, usually on Saturdays, is also part of the programme. Students travel to places of interest, normally outside the city by private or public transport. There are no organised activities on Sundays as many groups, host families or friends like to organise their own day.

Evening activities are held several times every week. These can include discos, Party nights, karaoke, quiz night, treasure hunts, sports & games competitions, movie nights, barbecues and much more. Evening activities normally take place between 20:00 and 22:00 but this can vary depending on the activity and age group of the students.

The activities programme provides students with an opportunity to absorb some of the world’s rich heritage in a fun and relaxed way while also allowing students the opportunity to improve their English. This informal and social aspect of the programme is key to improving language skills. It also allows students from different nationalities to get to know each other outside the classroom. Some of the friendships made at “IELS” will last a lifetime.

Accommodation & Supervision Highlights

Read more about:
Boarding schools offer an alternative to the “host family” option for students who wish to immerse themselves in the complete school experience. Boarding offers a unique community orientated way of life and suits students who are outgoing, sporty & adaptable. It offers a comprehensive academic and extracurricular environment which serves to develop each student to their full all-around potential. The “IELS” campus is a self-contained community, which offers children a degree of independence and freedom to explore whilst providing a safe and secure environment. The well-being of our students is at the heart of our boarding provision. With a generous staff to student ratio, we guarantee round-the-clock care within a happy, well-ordered environment. We encourage staff to cultivate a friendly, lively, family atmosphere to ensure all students feel comfortable, contented and supported while they are away from home. The College can accommodate residential students on-site, most in comfortable double or triple rooms accommodation. All the accommodation used by the Language School students is of extremely high quality. Each bedroom is either situated very close to our modern wash and toilet facilities or, alternatively, has its own en-suite shower room. Each student will have their own wardrobe, drawers, desk and chair. The catering facilities provide both hot and cold meals and a wide range of snacks. It is open before school and at break times.

Students attending “IELS” should stay with host families. All our families are inspected and carefully selected by our accommodation officers who maintain regular contact with each host family during a student’s stay. Host families are conveniently located to the colleges and most have many years experience looking after students.
 Accommodation is arranged on a full board basis with packed lunch Monday to Saturday.

Students normally share a room with a student of a similar age but different nationality. Unless specifically requested and if feasible there is only one student of any particular nationality in each family.
 Students normally travel to classes each day by public transport like bus, DART (suburban train) or LUAS (tram) or TUBE. Private transfers can also be arranged at an additional cost. 
Living with a host family gives a perspective into Irish or British family life. The interaction with a host family plays a prominent role in developing language skills.

All of the staff at “IELS” are committed to offering our students the best education during their stay. We inspire our students to work diligently so they can effectively improve their English proficiency.

Our experienced teaching staff are well trained and highly qualified in what they teach. They are up to date with the latest methods in teaching English as a foreign language and combine academic excellence with sensitivity and receptiveness to each student’s individual needs, talents and potential.
 All “IELS” teachers are university graduates with qualifications in teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and are respected for their knowledge and professionalism.

The activities programme provides students with an opportunity to absorb some of the world’s rich heritage in a fun and relaxed way while also allowing students the opportunity to improve their English. This informal and social aspect of the programme is key to improving language skills. It also allows students from different nationalities to get to know each other outside the classroom. Some of the friendships made at “IELS” will last a lifetime.

Students travel to the locations with their group leader(s) and one or more “IELS” activity leader.

All students are supervised by “IELS” activity leaders. During the day, students take part in supervised school classes, training sessions, activities and excursions. During the evening, students will also have a programme of supervised activities.

All the students have 24-hour emergency assistance.
