The Best of Both Worlds
After nearly two years of disruption you may be keen to return to some sort of pre-pandemic normality, especially in terms of being free to seek out new experiences, learn and travel. Despite lockdowns the world has become more open and more connected, but in different ways – increasing amounts of interaction is conducted online through Zoom, Skype and other methods of video conferencing. What has not changed, however, is that English is as important as ever in academia and business. The language is still the most widely spoken in the world.
In 2022 at GCI we are in a position to provide you with the best of both pre- and post-pandemic worlds, with comprehensive English teaching, up-to-the-minute technical support through Zoom and Moodle, along with the opportunity to travel to Ireland and reside in carefully selected, safe accommodation either with host families or in residences located in the city of Galway.
Why Galway Cultural Institute?
At Galway Cultural Institute we offer programmes to students from over thirty countries around the globe annually, and have been doing so for three decades. If you have decided to learn English in Ireland you will find that GCI has a fantastic selection of courses designed to improve your English language skills and abilities.
For 2022 we are offering more than forty modules, from four week evening English online classes to intensive courses of thirty-six lessons a week that will see you gain a Cambridge Advanced Certificate upon completion. Course prices are designed to suit every pocket, and the Institute provides you with a safe, welcoming learning environment in the centre of Galway.
At GCI we are mindful of your ever-changing needs, and our facilities and services are carefully considered with your wellbeing and growth at the forefront of our decision-making. Wi-Fi is freely available throughout the Institute building, while our thirty classrooms are spacious, modern (each contains interactive whiteboard technology) and make for a comfortable learning experience.
Staff at GCI are all skilled, fully-qualified native English speakers who are dedicated to providing you with excellent English language training, and deliver ongoing, continuous support when you choose the Institute to learn English. At GCI we also use Zoom for online learning, and the education platform Moodle where you can find and follow details of your class, store copies of your completed work, use resources for research and information, plus find links to events and additional courses that may be of use to you while you study.
Our building is ideally located for you to enjoy Galway, and also has a library, café, student spaces for relaxation, as well as bike rack storage and, of course, the beach looking out at Galway Bay just a short hop across the promenade.
