Thank you ;)

I have been in Mackdonald Language Academy's summer courses several times and that's obviously because i like it. Kilkenny is a beautiful place which has become my second town, i loved spending time at the castle park and going for a walk in the city center. I also enjoyed the classes and trips and met a lot of people from different countries that are now my friends. And i stayed with families who always were good and took care of me so made me feel part of the family, specially those last years, i really had a great time playing with Mia and Sam.
I'm quite sure i will come back to Kilkenny someday, and that's because you gave me an amazing experience. I just can feel grateful.
Thanks a lot.

Twice an amazing time

I was twice in Kilkenny, July 2012 and July 2013, both courses were a great experience. I made lots of new friends. with which I'm still in touch. My host family was so lovely, I became a family member very fast. The classes were also very good, the teachers were nice people, I've learned a lot. The people in my class were from different countries but we had so much fun together :D
I regret that I found this language academy so late in my life :'(
But someday I'll come back just to see what's going on :)
Thank you very much for this wonderful time!

The treasury of experience and knowledge

I've stayed in Kilkenny for 3 weeks and the only thing I regret about is that my journey was so short! In the Mackdonald academy everyone can find a comrade, because there are children of all age groups. I'm 18 and I did not have any hope to meet someone to spend time with. But I was surprised to make a few really good friends there! The same I can say about yonger boys and girls : after 3 lessons and lunch they already spoke and loughed like they were old friends! The athmosphere was very kind and cosy, no one staied alone. Elder students were very attentive to their little colleagues, children played valleyball, football and hurling all together! What about activities, they were very exciting and so different! We visited beautiful places, dark caves, a forest with deers, ancient univercity and strongholds! All guides had legible perfect speech. In my host family I never felt any discomfort, I found common languege at once! And I really miss them, they filled my journey with warmth and care. As a conclusion, I'd like to say it is not only english skills I got there, also I saw the country, made good friends and got a few lessons of life.
