Improve your speaking and writing
On this course, you will learn to discuss more complex issues and also write about them. After the course, you will be able to understand the news or a film without subtitles and discuss the plot, etc. The topics will be selected according to your and the other students' needs and interests, but we usually talk about some of the following topics: work, technology, feelings, holidays, living abroad, voluntary work and entertainment.

Tara recommends
Food and drink: Seafood is amazing in Ireland. The Galway Oyster and Seafood festival is well worth a visit. Irish lamb, traditional bread, cheese and anything dairy are also a must. 
Learning tips: Music can be a fun way of learning a new language. Listen to songs whilst reading the lyrics or singing along. This is how I improved my Danish pronunciation. Reading a book and discussing it with a friend is also enjoyable and productive.
Places to visit: Connemara, in the west of Ireland. Oscar Wilde referred to it as “A Savage Beauty”
Literature: Poetry, plays and crime novels. What she’d recommend ; The boy in the striped pyjamas ( John Boyne), The Field ( John B Keane), The Lost Symbol ( Dan Brown), The poetry of William Butler Yeats.
