About the Courses

The course - 1:1 Business or General English

Individual tuition offers a unique opportunity for professionals who require a serious study of practical English.

The content and duration of each course will be negotiated with each individual student and a study programme designed that is tailored to the particular needs of that student. Particular attention will be given to developing oral skills and improving pronunciation and fluency. This will increase your confidence, enable you to communicate more effectively and help you avoid misunderstandings.

The focus of General Englsih may be more on pleasure than business but the content of both will be determined with the language guest. There will also be excursions to local cities and places of interest. Courses usually last from one to four weeks.

About the School


The School is run by Jonathan and Sonia Lawes at Kilrateera which is situated just outside Mountshannon in County Clare in the west of Ireland. Mountshannon is a picturesque village on the banks of Lough Derg. Kilrateera is a traditional farmhouse with panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. The peaceful rural location is conducive to both study and relaxation. The school is set in its own grounds and has its own organic gardens with over an acre of fruit bushes, orchard, vegetable crops and greenhouses.

Accommodation and food

Teaching and accommodation are provided in a self- contained specially converted stone cottage, that combines comfort and privacy with the latest language learning technology. The language guest will have his/her private bedroom with en suite bathroom.

This is a small family run establishment that invites the language student to be a guest with us. All meals will be provided and whenever possible organic and free-range products will be used. Many of these will come from our own garden. You will share all of your meals with our family but have complete privacy in your own accommodation.
