Irish Experiences

Even if already some time passed by after our Dublin journey I want to post my opinion about this really interesting and educative week. I was very surprised in some points, but mostly in a positive way.

Host families

I think we could have caught it worse and also better with our family. Don’t get me wrong, they were really lovely people and treated us nice. But the house was really tiny and also cold, at least we had a heating for our beds. As cold as our rooms was the food on the first day, but it was definitely eatable.

The language school

Expect from the weekend, we had two lessons school every day, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. In my opinion the school could really have been skipped because I think was not our language level and I didn’t learn any new vocabulary or grammar or anything. I think it would have made more sense to visit more attractions or get more in contact with the local people, so that we learn to speak and interact with foreign people.

No underground

What I really have to criticize is that there is no underground in Dublin, so we had to go by bus everywhere, except a few time when we took the train. That’s also why we missed our bus stop one time and drove to the last stop, where luckily our meeting point for the evening program was.

So all in all I enjoyed the week even if there are some points to criticize like the school or the busses. We had a great and enjoyable time there and also made some interesting excursions. So I can just recommend going to Ireland to EVERYONE !
