What Students & Teachers Say...

Byeongpil Son

Byeongpil Son

Student at Frances King School

When I arrived in Dublin I spoke very little English but, with the help of my teachers, I learnt a lot. The school really cares about each student. Dublin is a friendly city and I enjoyed discovering different Irish pubs and practising my English while socialising.

Paul Dillon
