about it from a colleague."

– Transition Year group, Dublin; November 2009
"The DVD was beautifully put together. Totally up-to-date. Good clear
Irish in use. Some questions in the quiz were difficult for a First Year group.
I loved the questions i.e. Rubik's Cube thrown in – and money!"
– First Year group, Dublin; November 2009
"The DVD was very good, covered all issues, topics etc. Just long
enough, kept the students' attention, aimed at good level - Transition Year
students. The DVD was very relevant. Leaving Cert Geography students would find
it relevant to their study of regional geography. The quiz gets the students
thinking about Europe – may be more curious about Europe in the

content. The publications and maps on display in the foyer are informative and

– Third level group, Limerick, October 2009
"The presentation provided a good overall view of the EU. Very good
Q&A session. The DVD was very accessible. More detail on the new Member
States and the candidate countries should be helpful. There was a good mix of
different types of questions in the quiz."
– Transition Year group, Dublin; October 2009
"The duration of the presentation was just right. The level of detail
and jargon was perfect for this group. I thought the quiz was excellent.
Perhaps it may have been a little difficult for this age group. However, I
think they enjoyed it and it challenged all students and led to good
discussion. I think you offer a very good service. Thank you for a lovely

"Our students enjoyed the quiz which was new since we last visited! It
was very good, suited their level – they knew enough but still some questions
– Third Level group, Dublin; October 2009
"As European Studies is one of the main subjects in out TY programme, we
feel that a trip to the office is a must. We are heavily involved in the
European Youth Parliament and are doing the Comenius programme and so a history
of the EU is good for the students."

"We wanted to educate our Summer French students on Ireland and the EU,
but not by the conventional means of sitting in a classroom and with a short
lesson from our teachers. We went on the net and came across your website. From
this, we then decided to send our students to your centre. The feedback from
our students was very positive about your centre. They found the presentation
very educational, and they really learnt a lot about Ireland and the EU. They
really appreciated that your presentation was given to them in French. Because
of all this positive feedback, we would like to send 2 more groups to your
centre again next summer. The quiz was a great success with our students. They
really enjoyed the challenge of the quiz and the competition! And of course to
give their answers in English – very educational! Overall, we think this is a
great idea for educational students and would have no hesitation on
recommending your centre to students of all nationalities. Thank you and all
your colleagues for accommodating our two groups last summer."
– EFL group, France; July 2009
"The presentation was of the right level and the person in the Q&A
was excellent with the group. I thought the way in which we were accommodated
was excellent – I recommend most highly."
