Teachers very good, both David and Touria. Even though I think that one week for English and CLIL it not enough. May be it could be better to have a two weeks course or to split in two different courses.

Course well organised, and the teachers were great, specially Roisin who introduced us the CLIL methodology. But it would have been better to have more time for CLIL and less of English course.

Only few days before the course's start, I was told that, because of a bank holiday, the course would have begun on Tuesday. Because of that, it was more intense and demanding during the rest of the week, with 4 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. I had great teachers (Roisin and Touria), I enjoyed the classes, but I would have appreciated more CLIL and less English.

All of ulearn's teachers that I got to know (Roisin, Declan, Fintan) were extremely nice and open and made me feel very welcome. They were motivated and eager to improve our language and CLIL-skills. I would have appreciated a different focus: more CLIL (e.g. 3h in the morning including work on own material) and less English (1,5h in the afternoon). Apart from that I enjoyed the course.

The two courses, language and CLIL were both interresting. Teachers were really good and expect us to become better. I only regret that the language courses were not enough in a close relation with CLIL courses and a little far from teachers requirements in english.

What I liked most about this course, was the fact that it had two components (intensive language course and CLIL). A teacher can benefit from this course in two ways - improve language skills and learn something more about the methodology. The teachers were very proffesional and helpful.

I really enjoyed my time in Dublin. The General English lessons have been very useful to brush up un my language abilities. Staying in an environment with almost only native speakers improved both fluency and language awareness and had also positive effects on pronunciation. The CLIL section was also very interesting although we already use lots of the ideas and methods in our everyday work in primary school. Many ideas have to be adapted because the demands are too challenging for beginners with no vocabulary knowledge, grammar structures or language awareness.

I really enjoyed the course and recommend it to everybody who is interested! In the mornings we had General English and in the afternoon we get an overview about CLIL. It was very interesting, because actually I'm not a teacher for language subjects. One star is missing because the themes in the morning lessons weren't really transferable for every days teaching. But nevertheless - I liked both!

Roisin and Patrick the two teacher we had were very sympathetic and it was a pleasure to meet and learn with them. Concerning the CLIL course, we had only 1h and half of clil lessons a day. I think it would have been better if we have had clil lesson in the morning in two parts and 3h. The first with general information and exchanges with others participants (as we had in the afternoon) and a second part with practice in groups about what we could have learnt before and eventualy by topic (geography, maths...). And general English lesson in the afternoon. (1:30 instead of 3h even if what we learnt were very interesting. Very good exchanges with the goup.

The Course was amazing and it was a very good experience. I improved my fluency in the use of English language and at the same time gathered more information about CLIL. It was important to understand the relation between the theory and the classroom practice. I would like to thank Patrick, my English teacher and Roisin my CLIL teacher.
