Testimonials & Feedback of former students

I have been on several language courses in other countries like England, Malta and South Africa. But I must say that mackdonald language academy in Kilkenny really left a very good impression on me. The organisation of the classes, the variety of the trips - everything was very professional and well organised. And I really loved the atmosphere in Kilkenny. Ireland is a beautiful country and Kilkenny is one of the highlights! Thank you very much! :-)
mackdonald language academy is not very big, but that is the beauty of it! The Personel and teachers are very helpful , patient and approachable. I have learnt alot here. My host family is really marvellous - they are lovely and warm people. From them, I am learning to cook Irish dishes. Yes, Kilkenny certainly is a very beautiful city, esp. in autumn with all the beautiful colours ! I love it !!!
I really liked mackdonald language academy. I was here for 3 weeks and this course really helped me with my English. In residence we were also English speaking and that was also helpful.I liked the teachers, they can explain everything very quickly and made everything simple. I will hopefully be back in sometime in the near future.
