What our students say

Adult Basic Education

  1. For a long time I had thought of coming back to further my education.  What stopped me was lack of confidence, no self-esteem. When it came to signing forms or even reading out something, especially when I was getting my eyes tested, I was always afraid.

    I decided to take the chance and go down to Klear.  It was the best step I have ever taken. I started English, Spanish and computers. My confidence and self-esteem have started to come back.  I have met lots of people and I enjoy it very much. I also plan to go and do my Leaving Cert and maybe further.

  2. I came to help my writing skills, something I’ve always wanted to do because I left school early. It was a chance to meet new people.  The groups are small so I feel really comfortable. Since I started to come to KLEAR I feel more confident about filling in forms, writing letters of complaint, expressing myself more clearly.  It’s something I look forward to coming to every week.

  3. I came back to do my Leaving because I left school at 14 and always wanted to come back to education, and I have a great teacher called Geraldine who makes learning interesting and fun.

Hobbies & Interests

  1. When it was time for me to finish up work, I had a lot of free time on my hands. A friend of mine who was in KLEAR suggested I might like to try a course. As I had left school very early, it was something I had always wanted to do.  Returning to education has brought new challenges to me. I have many new friends and my goal now is to get my Leaving Cert. English, something I hope to do well in, thanks to KLEAR.

  2. It was the best decision I made to come and meet new people and I have learned so much on the different courses I have taken. The teachers are so caring and nothing is too much for them.

  3. When I retired I needed something to fill up my time.  Also I wanted a challenge and decided to set myself a goal.

English Language Courses

  1. I am taking this opportunity to polish my English. I have a difficulty with spelling and accent because my native language is French.  I also find it hard to pronounce words in English. I have joined KLEAR beginning of this year, my English has improved and I am very grateful.

  2. I’m going back to education because I need to improve my ability to understand and speak English.  With all things that I have to do at home, there is no chance to learn anything. It’s good to have the crèche where to leave the toddler.  It’s good for her to socialise there with the other children and good for me to mix with Irish people.
