Alpha College of English (now called Twin English Centre Dublin) was founded in 1989 and started as an executive training centre providing high-level management and technical courses in English to non-native English speakers.
The demand for high-quality English language courses was just as significant, and we started providing General English courses focusing on Business and Specialised Programmes.
Over the last 30 years, we have stayed true to the founding principle of offering the highest quality standards to our students worldwide.
When the school first opened as Alpha College of English in Dublin, approximately 20 students were starting in the school from 3 different countries. Last year, we welcomed 52 nationalities to Dublin, and we always try to ensure the best possible nationality mix in all the classes.
The Irish Department of Education recognises twin English Centre Dublin. It is also a member of the most prestigious quality mark in the International Language Travel industry – EAQUALS.
The general English curriculum covers a rolling 12-week period at all levels, from Elementary to Advanced. Our core classes take place from 9 AM to 1 PM, Monday to Friday, with a short coffee break from 10 to 11.
Whether you are coming to Twin English Centre Dublin as a General English or General Business English student, for an English for Special Purposes course, Teacher Training, Work Experience, or as a Young Learner, we aim to offer you the highest quality courses with the best student support while you are in Dublin.
