You looked like Santa Clause!! 

Thank you very much for your kindness! I will never forget you!!



I think this is one of merits of studying abroad in Ireland. You can find different cultures between your countries, and you can learn new things. You can find new way of thinking, and you can think about new choices. Studying in Ireland will make you change yourself, and it’s really good opportunity to make yourself different. I think I changed a lot after I came to Ireland. I met a lot of people in here, and they told me about their experiences of their life. I was shocked a lot, and impressed with their opinions, because all these thinking were absolutely new things for me. If I didn’t take this opportunity to come to Ireland to study, I wouldn’t know these precious opinions from foreigners. Their opinions were sometimes about school, about personality, jobs, or lifestyle. All of these became big help for me in thinking about my future, school life, everything. Ireland was great experience for me, and it will be great memory for me throughout whole my life. I hope you can also meet great people, see great places, and have great moments from your exchange experience. It wasn’t easy, but I can affirm that the experience of studying in Ireland will change yourself and your life forever.

Thank you for five weeks! I relied entirely on you in Ireland and Swiss. I like you! See you again!!



In 2018 I was 20 years old and studying business administration in Germany. As part of my studies I was given the opportunity to take an internship abroad. I selected Ireland for my internship country because from an early age I have always wanted to travel to Ireland where the scenery is so beautiful and natural. I spent three weeks working in Ireland and found the country so gorgeous and all people friendly and lovable. On weekends I visited various towns and cities, and which were all unique and lovely. Ireland is so multifarious. There are beautiful Cliffs in places such as Howth Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, which contrast so much with modern cities like Dublin. Not forgetting the little Irish Pubs with live music and Guinness, which all made for an unforgettable experience. I enjoyed my time in Ireland and I’m definitely coming back!

For the final year of studying business and finance, my college gave me the opportunity to travel Ireland to spend three months as an Intern with Equinox Education Services in Carlow in 2018.

Thanks to Equinox I have gained great work experience and got to enjoy living with a wonderful host family. I also got the opportunity to explore many beautiful places in Ireland and meet people from other parts of the world. My spoken and written English has improved steadily during my time here and I would have no hesitation in recommending Equinox to anyone wanting to learn English in this safe and beautiful country.
