„Friends, Romans, countrymen lend me your ears …“ (from Julius Caesar, Shakespeare)
Students of the 6A and 6B have created BLOGS to provide an insight on what is going on when we are staying in Dublin from April 7 – 14.
We would be delighted if you just see, read and comment on our posts:
From 22nd February to 26th February, the students of year four were enjoying an English project week, a week of total immersion into the English language!
Working on various projects, playing games, speaking and listening to natives from different English speaking countries was not only good fun but also rewarding. The projects were presented on an exhibition on Friday (5th and 6th lesson).
The students of the 4th and 5th forms enjoyed the vivid and entertaining production „Undercover Star“ by Robin Kingsland (Vienna’s English Theatre) on Thursday, 11th February. The story revolves around Hannah Grainger, a fashion design student, who accidentally delves into the world of a pop star, Ivy Rose. She gets to know about the up and downs of a celebrity’s life to finally realise how convenient an ordinary life can be. Photos …

– as long as the travelling angels of 6C/D were totally immersing into English language and Irish culture in Bray from October 8th– October 15th, 2015. Guided by their teachers, M.Ofenauer and Ms.Parrer, the students set off to explore historic Irish monuments, like Glendalough and Wicklow Jail, Irish urban and sports life in Dublin and the Irish landscape by doing the Bray Cliffwalk, the Bray Beachwalk and repeatedly taking the Dart to Dublin along the coastline. Morning (and afternoon classes) in ATC language school were intense, so were afternoon and evening activities. Our feet hurt from walking and dancing, but the warm hospitality of our Irish hostfamilies helped us to recover and gather new strength for upcoming adventures. Back in Austria we still hear the sound of Irish music and we will keep the memories of Irish friendliness dear in our hearts!
Go raibh maith agaibh! Thank you Eire for a wonderful week!
The 6A and 6B forms, guided by their English teachers Angela Stadlmann and Armin Penn, spent the week from 6th to 13th March 2015 on a language project week in Bray, a small coastal town south of Dublin. There the students were put up with local host families who catered for them during that time. (mehr …)
This week (March 9th – 13th. 2015) the students of year 4 were enjoying an English Project week, a week of total immersion into the English language. It was both amusing and rewarding for the students to play games, participate in activities and do projects speaking to and listening to natives from a variety of English speaking countries throughout the whole morning. The projects were presented in a presentation party on Friday. Classes. Presentation Party
One week of full immersion into Irish culture, lifestyle and the English language – that was this year’s language week of classes 6C and 6D together with their teachers Johannes Eichhorn, Silvia Zeller and Doris Sommer.
Our enjoyable but still exhausting days always started with morning classes with native teachers at ATC Language School in the city centre. The afternoons and evenings were enriched by a great variety of activities and excursions such as Irish dancing, a visit of the home of Gaelic sports (Croke Park Stadium), Glendalough, and Kilmainham Gaol (jail) – the historic site that led us even deeper into Irish history. A breathtaking cliff walk on the Howth peninsula and a few hours on Malahide’s sandy beaches rounded off our Irish experience. Our Irish hosts welcomed us with warm hospitality, which made it even harder to say goodbye.
After arriving on Monday in front of our language school we were all excited to be picked up by our host families. In spite of cultural differences we were all very lucky to live with nice families and nobody had any problems. After long days they provided us with a good dinner an encouraged us to use our English skills by involving us in conversations. (mehr …)
