Executive English learningThierry from France
35 years of love with DSE. In 1977, I was 20 and I came with my father for 15 days at DSE for a 7 hours-a-day ONE-to-TWO course. What an experience, what a souvenir. Of course I hugely improved my English but I was speaking with my Father, and all day long (first time in my life) at the point of arriving at the French airport, we were still speaking together and in English. While I needed to “relearn” my English, I discovered with a lot of happiness DSE still exists. I’ve just spent 15 days in DUBLIN again for a 7 hours-a-day intensive course, and it was as good as it was 35 years ago. Thank you Conor and Neilan for teaching me so much, so quickly and in such a friendly way, mornings and afternoons. Thank you Paul for advising me so clearly. And thank you Sara for this so good reception. I’ve just decided I’ll be back next year, but at advanced level.

I highly recommend DSE. Had a really great experience there. 2007 will be in my memory forever. Thanks a million for the assistance and exceptional teachers. Miss you always. All the best from Brazil.

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.
