ENGLISH AND SPORT METHODOLOGY

In the classroom, students are encouraged to learn English through a general English course and inspired to discover more about a particular sport like rugby. Conversations in small groups are always promoted by the teachers so students can interact regarding a specific topic. In addition to a classroom-learning environment, students will be educated in the outdoors or at the sport complex. As result students become more familiar with the vocabulary related to the sporting activity selected. In the follow-up period, students will begin their sporting activity.
Athletes are more expressive in using the English Language after the sport activities. They are more confident and motivated than when they were in the classroom. As result there is a better social interaction and a sense of teamwork among classmates and definitely an improvement in the use of the English Language.
Rugby Summer Camps in England and Ireland provide each athlete with the best possible teaching and coaching staff with the aim to empower the learners to reach their full potential via a high quality and inspiring education.

ACCOMMODATION

Host Families Students attending Play Rugby and learn English should stay with host families. All our families are inspected and carefully selected by our accommodation officers who maintains regular contact with each host family during a student’s stay. Host families are conveniently located to the colleges and most have many years experience looking after students.
Accommodation is arranged on a full board basis with packed lunch Monday to Saturday. Students normally share a room with a student of a similar age but of different nationality. Unless specifically requested there is only one student of any particular nationality in each family.
 Students normally travel to classes each day by public transport like bus, DART (suburban train) or LUAS (tram) in Dublin. Living with a host family gives a perspective into Irish family life. The interaction with a host family plays a prominent role in developing language skills.

College Boarding schools offer an alternative to the “host family” option for students who wish to immerse themselves in the complete school experience. Boarding offers a unique community orientated way of life and suits students who are outgoing, sporty & adaptable. It offers a comprehensive academic and extra curricular environment which serves to develop each student to their full all round potential. The Play Rugby and learn English campus is a self-contained community, which offers children a degree of independence and freedom to explore whilst providing a safe and secure environment. The well-being of our students is at the heart of our boarding provision. With a generous staff to student ratio, we guarantee round-the-clock care within a happy, well-ordered environment. We encourage staff to cultivate a friendly, lively, family atmosphere to ensure all students feel comfortable, contented and supported while they are away from home.
The College can accommodate residential students on-site, most in comfortable double or triple rooms accommodation. All the accommodation used by the Language School students is of extremely high quality. Each bedroom is either situated very close to our modern wash and toilet facilities or, alternatively, has its own en-suite shower room. Each student will have their own wardrobe, drawers, desk and chair.
The catering facilities provide both hot and cold meals and a range of snacks. It is open before school and at break times.

Rugby is ...

  • Sacrificio, Respeto, Humildad y Camaradería.

    Gerardo Cosenza, Argentina
  • Ce jeux m'a appris le respect des autres, les valeurs qui lui sont liée comme le partage, m'a fais découvrir ce qu'était l'amitié et m'a permis de rencontrer de bons copain et des amis. Les exigences de ce sport m'on inculquer des valeurs tels, l'aciduitée, l'exigence le combat... Faisant de moi je le croit une meilleure personne. Le rugby ma parfois procurée des peines et des chagrins, il m'a aussi apporter les plus belle joie et je croix qu'une dès chose qui me procure le plus de plaisir sur cette terre est de disputer un match avec mes partenaires. Ce petit texte est écrit sans prétention, pour illustré le fait que pour moi le rugby est un jeux que je vis passionnément. Il fait partit de moi.

    Martin, France
  • Como mis padres, me enseñó esfuerzo en cada jugada, silencio y respeto a las decisiones arbitrales, trabajo en cada entrenamiento, humildad con tus compañeros y oponentes, honestidad en el juego, respecto a tu capitán y entrenador. Todo esto me ha echo mejor persona y por eso creo que no hay un deporte con tantos valores como el rugby.

    Xoan, Spain
  • Rugby is a different way of living in sacrifice, team work, enjoy, respect and love.

    Guillermo, Spain
  •  Rugby is: sweat, sacrifice, passion, something more than a  simple sport! It turns you into the depths of your soul by helping to survive in everyday life!
