“Emerald Cultural Institute is one of those schools that never fails to impress. Such care is taken over every single aspect of the operation. This visit meant that QE saw, once again, how the school sets a very high standard in the industry. Even this is not good enough for them, though, as they embark on an ambitious phase of further development.”

It was the best choice I have made. This school offered me different things compared to the others, I received the best welcome and the environment was very familiar. After two months of studying I improved a lot thanks to the great teachers and classes that I had.
I fell in love when I first entered the school at Palmerston Park. It is a lovely place with a magical atmosphere. After 4 months studying English and living in Dublin, I know for sure that I had made the right decision!
The CAE course offered by Emerald can not only help you pass the Cambridge exam, but it also enhances you English skills for any life situations, owing to the excellent and experienced teachers.
You can improve your English knowing people from all over the world and enjoy a fabulous Irish atmosphere, with fantastic teachers! May your road lead you here, you’ll never regret it!
It was a wonderful month in Dublin. The host family was perfect and I had a lot of chat with them. The school is very good: wonderful teachers and small classes, to every student is given a lot of attention. They really take care of their students. The extra activities were beautiful. In one month my English was really improved.
I really appreciate for everything from Emerald. The online class was really helpful. Every teacher in Emerald is amazing and awesome. They have been doing best for students. So I would say that's why Emerald is the best language school.
I've thoroughly enjoyed my experience working at Emerald over the last five years. One of the highlights for me has been mentoring students from all over the world. It has brought me closer to the students and they enjoy seeing a friendly, familiar face around the school, someone they know they can come and talk to anytime.
As of today I’ve finished all of my C1 level courses. I can’t express to you how much Eugene’s teaching has helped
me out. My progress and journey of learning English has been a very positive one thanks to him. Not only do I appreciate my teacher’s efforts, but I feel so blessed that I’ve met wonderful friends at Emerald.
I would like to thank everyone at Emerald for all the care and support they offer to all students. Honestly, today between online classes and face-to-face classes, I would not feel insecure in choosing online classes. Teachers gave the best of themselves to maintain the same quality of teaching as face to face classes and Emerald offers all the support to improve the quality of classes every day.
I have been supported a lot in many ways by my tutor since I started course in this school. Especially when I was struggling with the CV for my internship, he kindly gave a lot of practical advice. I can consult him whenever I am worried about something even if it is small thing.
I have been a teacher in Emerald since 2012. The first thing I noticed when I started here was how kind and welcoming the staff were, many go beyond their job in helping their students. Emerald is a school that is not afraid to innovate. We are persistently looking to improve the quality of our teaching, add to our courses, and better our services for students.
