MLC has been working with Irish host families and international students since 1976. We are known for our professionalism, but because we are a family business, we have also come to know many of our host families on a personal level and can offer a friendly service and practical advice at all times. We are parents ourselves, we have hosted students ourselves… and we illustrate to our students and their parents exactly what they can expect from staying with a family in Ireland.
Decades of Experience
founded in 1976 by the formidable Clodagh Brady, MLC has several decades of experience in organising unique and memorable language courses for students in Ireland.
the family involvement guarantees personal attention and ensures that each student is treated as a valuable individual. We have been to stay with host families ourselves as teenagers, and have grown up hosting students, so can understand every aspect of the experience.
One Placement Policy
We offer two very special and unique guarantees with our placements:
our clients, partners, host families, schools, tuition teachers and activity organisers are proud to be associated with us. Many of our students, and their friends and siblings, return to Ireland through our centre year after year. This is the best recommendation of all.
The Homestay Factor
our programmes differ from those of many other companies in that we place our students with host families, as opposed to in residential or school accommodations. This means the students ‘live the language’ and enjoy the comfort, friendship and unique experience of enjoying Irish family life.
Our Host Families
we very much value and appreciate our host families. They go to great effort to ensure students have an enjoyable and valuable experience in Ireland. They show great care, warmth and inclusion to their students, which is illustrated by the number of students returning and requesting the same host families year after year. We work with host families all across Ireland and one of our main strengths is the extremely high standard of our host families.
