Travelling Languages moves to new location

August 05, 2013

Travelling Languages, an English language school in Ireland that combines classroom tuition with language immersion while touring the country, has moved to a new, larger premises in Dublin.

The new school and head office is at 6 Clare Street, Dublin 2, in a house that was once famed novelist and playwright Samuel Beckett’s home and family office. The school is opposite the National Gallery and 50 metres from the birthplace of Oscar Wilde, where a monument to the writer and poet is placed.

Salvatore Fanara, Director of Travelling Languages, said the previous location, within the former Guinness Factory, had worked perfectly for the school’s non-traditional teaching method, but had become too small to accommodate demand.

“These premises carry with them about 250 years of history in one of the oldest streets of Dublin,” said Fanara. “Travelling Languages could only be at the centre of Dublin and in an historical building. It could only be in an area full of history, culture and tourist interest.”

All classrooms feature flat screens for audio, video and multimedia activities, while a student common area is on the ground floor and an internet corner with PCs for students is also available, with free Wi-Fi available throughout the building.

“Dublin is only a passage point, where our students arrive and start immerging themselves in what is going to be one of the best and most effective ways to improve their English and learn about a new culture; in the same way these premises are steps from most of the walking tours of Dublin,” said Fanara.
