CEC was founded over 35 years ago by our present Managing Director, Valery Cullen. CEC is a family-run organisation that takes great pride in the service and personal contact they provide for each of their clients.
CEC curriculum is based on a combination of language structures functions and vocabulary graded according to level. In addition, classroom activities are carefully balanced throughout the day to ensure systematic development of the four skills (speaking, reading, listening and writing). They have an extensive range of resources from which to select the most appropriate materials for use in a particular class.
Our fully qualified and experienced language trainers are expert in adapting recourses and teaching methods to suit the specific interests and requirements of individual students.
During the orientation session, the students are welcomed to Cork and to the school. They are familiarised with the timetable, the activities programme, the layout of the building and the facilities provided.
We have a fully comprehensive library, incorporating both educational and recreational reading materials. The Study Centre is located on the top floor of the school.
