Language Xchange Ireland offers groups of students an opportunity to improve their ‘Business English’ through our structured, multi-tiered English Learning Programs. For programs with a Voluntary Work Placement component, students' skills and interests are matched with a local company or business - known as a Voluntary Work Placement Provider.
Voluntary Work Placement programs provide student groups with an opportunity to gain international business experience, improve English language skills and enhance life skills through the experience of participating in a Voluntary Work Placement, living with an Irish family and attending social and cultural events and activities.
LXI offers a range of programmes to our students in Waterford:
Our programmes are tailored to meet the needs of students who wish to gain international English language experience and develop confidence speaking English in a business environment.
