DOUBLE YOUR CREATIVITY WITH RITE UNIVERSITY

Activities

Our programmes aim to create a positive learning atmosphere both inside and outside the classroom and help students to make immediate connection with their teachers while maximising the study experience through our carefully – crafted activities.

Here is a look at the four key programme elements you’ll find at Rite University:

1. Lessons

Students are tested upon arrival and, based on the results, they are divided into classes according to their level. This method allows students to get the maximum benefit from our English lessons, creating an atmosphere that is comfortable and enjoyable, as students work at their own pace to improve their English.

Our qualified native English language teachers work with students to improve all skills in English; reading, writing, listening and speaking. Lessons are designed by our teachers to be enjoyable as well as beneficial, allowing students to engage with the English language in new and exciting ways.

Above all, we believe that language is a reflection of culture, and the input of the native teachers allows for the students to learn the English language in the way that it is spoken in its country of origin. At the end of the programme, the students are examined again to assess their progress, and get a chance to show what they have learnt during their time with us, at the final show. We encourage and reward creativity and expression as much as their improved knowledge of the language.

For this reason, this activity has proved extremely popular with all our students.

2. After - Class Activities

  • Project work

Project work allows students to work together other in discovering key characteristics of their destination country culture and customs. Students work together to construct a project according to their selected programme category.

They improve their public speaking skills, learn to work as part of a team with a common goal and also engage in peer learning: sharing knowledge on a particular topic.

By engaging with elements of different cultures in this fashion, students get a deep understanding of the country they are in and learn to respect a culture that is different from their own.

We believe that students should enjoy their learning experience and the projects provide them with the rewarding feeling of knowing that they can achieve goals using a foreign language.

  • Sport activities

Sports and games play an important role in our programme. We believe that shared physical activity and healthy competition strengthens group dynamics and helps in building interpersonal skills. Students are introduced to Irish sporting traditions in class but are also afforded the opportunity to physically sample these sports for themselves.

Hurling, Gaelic football, Tag Rugby, Camogie, handball and other sports are facilitated along with more well know and popular sports such as soccer, volleyball, badminton and tennis. Students also get to experience a typical style sports day that are common in their destination country; students take part in sports and childhood games that would be typical in Ireland but may not be found in other countries.

Students are also exposed to a number of traditional pastimes: such as card games, board games and storytelling.

3. Evening Activities

We understand that constant activity could be tiresome and that students need free time to socialise, build friendships and relax after a full day of activity. Our teachers organise entertainment in the evenings that allow students to interact and have fun with each other and the teachers.

These include group activities such as table quizzes, mini sport competitions, karaoke, and movie nights. These activities are light hearted and often prove to be most popular with our students.

4. Excursions

Our excursions are designed to give students the maximum amount of exposure to the most culturally rich, historically significant and geographically beautiful sights. Students participate in at least five of these excursions. All excursions are led by our native language teachers and students gain a cultural and historical insight into the areas they visit.

Students then gain a deeper understanding of these areas during project work, where they further explore the visited sites and their experiences with them.
