1r de batxillerat: Linguistic trip to Ennis (Ireland)


Our school organized a linguistic trip to Ennis, Ireland, for seven days ( from the third to the ninth of April). We were forty-four students and three teachers. All of us stayed in family houses.

Ennis is the county town of Clare. The town is on the river Fergus, which flows east, then south into the Shannon estuary.

The name Ennis comes from the Irish word “Inis” which means “island”.

In the morning our students had classes focused on oral practice. Then they had a break of an hour and different extra activities in the afternoon such as: a photo project, an orientation tour of Ennis ( with its narrow streets and colourful shops), traditional Irish music and dancing lessons, bowling and an excursion to world famous Cliffs of Moher. The last day before going to the airport we enjoyed a panoramic Dublin tour.

It has been a valuable experience and we are looking forward to repeat it next year!
