I had a language course in ISI this year and really liked my stay there. The lessons are really helpful and as soon as you get better you always have the possibility to change your level to a higher one, which helps you always to improve your English even more. The activities in the afternoon are really interesting and vary in different ways. There are sightseeing trips around the city, social activities (e.g. soccer) and every saturday a trip to a different location in Ireland. Thumbs up!

Enseñanza buena, ya que las clases son de 6 a 8 a alumnos. La ubicación es centrica, como todo en Dublín. El material que pagas por 35 euros, no compensa. Además sino pides el libro, bolsa gym, etc no te dan nada y lo pagas. La diversión para los grupo de por la tarde, es nula; ya que las actividades que organiza la escuela se hacen a las 14:30 en adelante. Es decir al estar en clases, no puedes ir. En resumen, de lo prometido por ello a lo recibido, hay una gran distancia.
Reply from ISI Dublin: Muchas gracias por la retroalimentación, estamos muy agradecidos en saber que disfrutaste de la oferta educativa que ofrece ISI. Los €35 referentes al costo de materiales cubren 3 cosas: 1) uso del paquete de libros en clase, 2) un libro de ejercicios, el cual es de tu propiedad, 3) todas las fotocopias/material que provee el profesor en clase. Todos los estudiantes son notificados en su primer día que deben presentarse en la recepción de la escuela para recoger su libro de ejercicios y un bolso. Esta información también esta incluida en la guía del estudiante. Lamentamos que los puntos anteriores no te hayan sido clarificados. El costo de las clases del turno vespertino tienen un 25% de descuento comparadas con las de turno matutino – el compromiso del estudiante de turno vespertino es que no puede tener acceso completo al programa de actividades sociales. Estando este punto aclarado, ISI cuenta con un programa de clubs (drama, historia y cultura) los cuales comienzan a las 4.40pm, posterior al termino de las clases de turno vespertino. Además, por lo menos una actividad en la tarde/noche cada semana, una fiesta de integración estudiantil (por la noche) una vez al mes y excursiones cada Sábado. Esperamos que hayas tenido la oportunidad de integrarte a alguna de estas actividades.

El problema ha estado con la familia,la escuela no tiene actualizada la información y tampoco te pregunta si quieres estar con perros o cualquier tipo de mascotas. La f me han tratado correctamente pero era imposible coincidir en las cenas con ellos y si se coincidia no tenían ningún interes en hablar contigo. Con lo cual toda esa parte de intercambio la he perdido. Tambien estaba con una estudiante española en la misma casa con lo cual noera de ayuda. Por lo que dudo que vuelva a esta escuela.
Reply from ISI Dublin: Hello Leonor, Thank you for taking the time to review our school. I am sorry that you were not happy with your accommodation. We work hard to find good host families for our students. We have 2 full time members of staff that work on accommodation and are available to speak with students directly about any problems they might have. Students that do not feel they are "matched" well with a host family will be moved as soon as possible. During the summer periods we cannot guarantee one Spanish per family but were possible we do aim to have a mix of nationalities in the homestay. We want all our students to be happy in their classes and accommodation. We encourage all students to come and talk to the school staff about any complaints, problems or issues they might have so we can help them. We have noted your complaint regarding you host family on their file. We hope you will visit Dublin again and keep practising your English. Best Wishes, iStudy

Los profesores son muy amables y el personal excelente. Estoy contenta con la academia, lo único que predominan los estudiantes españoles y eso dificulta el aprendizaje.
Reply from ISI Dublin: Hello Iris, Thank you for reviewing our school. We really appreciate your feedback and I hope you enjoyed your stay. During July and August we have an increased number of Spanish students in our school. If you would like to avoid studying with other Spanish students we offer afternoon classes at a reduced price and there was less Spanish students studying at this time. Kind Wishes from iStudy

He quedado muy satisfecha con la escuela y con las clases que he recibido. La metodología de la escuela era basicamente trabajar el oral, o al menos así funcionaba mi nivel. El personal y profesorado era muy amigable y hacian muchas actividades durante el dia. El único problema que he visto ha sido que apenas habían actividades para los alumnos de tarde. Por otro lado, habían DEMASIADOS españoles, lo que dificultaba bastante el hablar en inglés..
Reply from ISI Dublin: Hello Alicia, Thank you for your feedback. It is correct that during July and August there are more Spanish students in the school. We offer morning and afternoon classes and the afternoon classes are a lower price and have less Spainish students compared with the morning lessons. The school also offers cultural excursions in the morning, afternoons, evenings and at the weekend. We hope you enjoyed your staff and you will come back to Dublin again. Thanks iStudy

La ubicación es buena, aunque cuesta un poco localizar la academia al encontrarse en una pequeña calle cortada. Las actividades organizadas son buenas y responden a los múltiples intereses de los alumnos. El problema es que hay muchos españoles en estas épocas del año, y esto dificulta que se pueda practicar más el idioma que quieres aprender.
Reply from ISI Dublin: Hello, Thank you so much for reviewing our school. iStudy school has a very central location 5 minutes walk from Henry Street or Temple Bar, but it is true that the school is in a Lane that is slightly hidden. A map with clear directions to the school it sent to every student with their accommodation details. If a student gets lost of confused they can call the school and we will (a) direct them to the school or (b) a staff member will meet the student and bring them to the school if they are lost. Keep practising your English and we hope to see you in Dublin again. iStudy
