Alvaro, Uruguay

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Hello, my name is Alvaro. I’m from Uruguay and I’m 37 years old. I came here to improve my English level in order to find better job opportunities in the IT department. At the moment I’m working remotely for a Uruguayan company. I kept the job because I knew I would struggle here in finding a new one at the very beginning.

Why did you choose Ireland for your study destination?

For me, Ireland was the best possible option. I chose Ireland because of my age and it was one of the English speaking countries that allowed me to work as well as to study at the same time.

What are your favourite spots in Ireland?

Since I’ve been in Dublin, I visited a few places. I love the parks, especially Phoenix Park which is enormous. Besides Dublin I went to Bray and I was able to visit the cliffs. It was very interesting and I enjoyed it very much.

What do you like about Atlas?

Atlas is a great place and the perfect institute to learn English. The teachers that I had were excellent and the building and facilities are great.

If you were to recommend Atlas to your best friend, what would you say?

No doubt: Give it a try! It’s really recommended and is one of the top places. I will definitely recommend it to my friend who is thinking about doing it as well!!
