Why study English at Griffith College?

With our flexible English for General Purposes Programmes, you can study for 15 hours (morning or afternoon). You have the choice of topping these hours up with an afternoon elective of 5 hours per week, giving you a total of 20 hours of tuition per week. Whichever Programme you choose, both fluency and accuracy will be the focus of study as we aim to help you with personal and professional development, giving you an advantage in whatever life path you decide to pursue.

Here, at Griffith Institute of Language (GIL) we aim to give all students the following:

  • Confidence in Speaking Listening, Reading and Writing skills.
  • Relaxed and comfortable classroom setting with emphasis on task completion and communication skills
  • Language, historical and cultural teachings that explore the historical and contemporary issues that make Ireland the society it is today.
  • high-quality teaching team ensuring learners get the most from their time with us.
  • Progress opportunities to support transition through to Griffith College's undergraduate or postgraduate programmes, if required.

I’ve always been excited about studying in Griffith College because their method and teachers are really good.  Now that I finished I feel really proud of myself and grateful for all the experiences I had.  Limerick is a really good place, it’s a small and simple city and because of that the here can be very humble.


When I arrived in Ireland I couldn’t understand anyone, but now it’s different, my English level is much better.  Here I made new friends and the teachers are really good.  Now I’m going back to Brazil to finish my college and after that, I want to return to Griffith College and maybe start a new degree here.
