We would like to thank you for our latest trip to DSE. All students have enjoyed their trip to Ireland and they are very thankful for such a great opportunity to study English at you school. The results of visiting the school are wonderful. Every student passed the exams successfully. We also would like to say a word about host families. All of them were very kind and hospitable and treated our students as members of their families. All our students and their parents highly appreciate all the work you did for them.

It's not only our students that your lovely staff have turned into Irish fans, we teachers can't wait to visit again next year.

I really enjoyed my stay at DSE summer school in July 2011. I met many students from different countries. I had different teachers, but I liked all of them. Special thanks to Denis and Rebecca. I stayed with lovely family, Mary and Tony. They are really nice people, very kind and careful. They were my teachers too. Hope to come again next summer and to stay with them. Thank you.

Opening bank accounts? Let me save you some time: AIB Bank will not open bank accounts for students staying on courses of 8 months. That means all English language students. Their pathetic excuse? They are "made implement these rules" by the Central Bank of Ireland. It's funny (not) how the Central Bank of Ireland do not agree and how other banks have chosen to interpret the rules differently. Disgraceful behaviour for a state owned bank. If you need a bank account our partners in Bank of Ireland will happily open one for you. Just ask at the DSE reception desk. #aibbank #useless #boi #bankofireland ... See MoreSee Less
