Why Silvia fell in love with Ireland, Dublin and Alpha College

Marianne CurciCollege News, Student Testimonials


“Some years ago the stork supposed to bring me home , had taken the wrong way and missed the right country.

I really love the Irish style (personally more than the English one.. but shh ;)) I love your way to make everybody feel comfortable and at home, I love your red hair and freckled faces and as a good scout-girl I love the green that covers all your beautiful country!

I love the Irish sky.. always moving ; you know that in Italy we have a song called “the Irish sky” ? It’s just amazing! If you want to search for “il cielo d’Irlanda” I really suggest it to you! πŸ™‚

Starting from the architecture I am totally charmed by it! I really like your not skyscraperlike houses, all comfortable and unique. I love your coloured doors, a quirky peculiarity that makes all your houses different one from the other!

I love all your parks , huge or not, they are the perfect place where to sit and draw.. read or just wondering about your life. They really inspire you! πŸ™‚

Then I like your public transports! Always efficient and on time! I am really in love with your post office! πŸ™‚ it’s so huge and gorgeous! (You should try an Italian one! There are no comparisons at all!)

I like your young lifestyle and the plenty of cultural and funny events spread all over the country and organized all over the year!

I would like to live in Dublin and my secret dream is to move there and attend the college there as well.. who knows.. πŸ™‚

I have been studying English during summer holidays for 7 years, and apart from this year I have never ever came back twice to the same place and school.. this was before being at Alpha College! I completely fell in love with Ireland , Dublin and with the school!

I can really improve my English here! I liked so much the teachers that are perfectly prepared, very kind and with a lot of interesting activities to do! I enjoyed so much the visits organized by the school with the best “tour guides” I have ever had. An explosive mixture of fun , kindness and preparation! Awesome!

I like also the “social places” as the canteen.. a comfortable place where to enjoy your meal in company πŸ™‚

Well I really don’t know what to add more, apart from the fact that I would like to come back for the third time and more and more!”

Silvia sent us this email after her second time in Alpha. Thank you so much Silvia and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
