How does the Summer Language School work?

Our Summer Language School is available for student groups aged 12 to 17 years. We recruit teaching staff for our Junior Centres who will motivate and encourage junior students to build on the English they already know. We also use AI English learning software tools and bring learning to the student participant, at their level.

Mornings at the Junior Centres are divided into two sessions and usually have two teachers and each student has a tablet and AI English Learning software, to hand. The first session concentrates on reading skills, writing skills and key grammar. The class of max #12 students is organised so that learning is fun and interactive, resulting in consistent progress. After a mid-morning break students concentrate on improving their oral skills using role-play, debate, project work, learning about their surroundings in Ireland and the cultural landmarks visited during their stay.

Our school is based in a small town in the beautiful Irish countryside. This friendly, semi-rural setting provides peace of mind for parents and teachers about the safety and security of students while they are away from home. In contrast to schools in larger cities, our students benefit from becoming part of the friendly local community during their stay.

Our programs are action-packed with fun and exciting activities, ensuring students are engaged, occupied and motivated at all times. LXI deliver a full day on site - 9am to 4pm daily on the school grounds.

The 2024 Summer Language School is limited to max #24 students.


The Language Xchange Ireland Summer School has been chosen for its excellent academic and sports facilities as well as its beautiful location. Our premises are the second level school attended by local teenagers from September to June and is conveniently located close to Language Xchange Ireland Host Families in the cultural and crafts town of Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny. Sports facilities include playing fields and basketball courts. These facilities allow LXI to arrange a widely varied and challenging sports and activity program.


We want our students to enjoy there stay with us, so we have organised an action-packed program. Students will visit historical places and take part in many activities including arts, crafts, dance and sports. Students will also have an opportunity to make lots of new friends and attend social activities and other evening activities such as our supervised alcohol-free disco on a Friday night.
