Je suis resté avec Catherine et s famille ces dernières semaines car je voulais améliorer mon anglais. Elle m'attendait à l'aéroport et s'est très bien occupé de moi. Depuis que je suis ici, nous avons fait des excursions d'une journée pour explorer la belle campagne et j'ai appris aussi à jouer au golf, au tennis et fait du kickboxing.


I had an excellent language stay during the Halloween periods in 2023 with this family for 10 days.

The house was in a very quiet small town of Templemore. The room in which I lived was very warm. It is a very welcoming and smiling family with two very nice children too. During this stay I was able to discover the different cultures, city and language of this country. We were able to have a pleasant time with the family such as admiring the Halloween parades in the cities of Galway and Limerick. We were able to create a link with the children as in the morning we took them to school, so we did fun activities. We were able to visit different monuments in the cities near Templemore: the castle "Rock of castel", a park "Cahir park", the forest of Templemore where we can walk, the sea in Galway so I was also able to take a 2-hour horse ride in Rusheenmore. I also participated in the Halloween walk in the evening in the forest next to the house with the children. It was full of unforgettable moments and where I enjoyed it. Thank you very much to this family. Signed Olivia
