What our students say

Adult Basic Education

  1. I was next door doing a course and when I finished I came to KLEAR to study Leaving Cert. English. Best thing I ever did. I did not look back. Made lovely friends and have a saint in Geraldine, our teacher.

  2. I went back to education because I had no confidence in my spelling or writing and hated when I was asked to fill in forms in front of somebody.  I panicked. I heard about KLEAR and felt I should try it. My sister went first. Since then I have gained confidence in my writing and spelling and feel much better about myself.  We have great conversations about everything.

  3. 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.


Hobbies & Interests

  1. 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. 

  2. 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.

  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’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.

  2. 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.



  1. I want to thank Aileen and the girls at KLEAR as my son is graduating this year and has loved his time there at KLEAR.

  2. My daughter attended KLEAR and she loved it.  My daughter had great fun and enjoyed learning at KLEAR.

  3. My two children have attended crèche and ECCE at KLEAR and I would highly recommend it.
