On 10 September 2011, Emerald Cultural Institute celebrated 25 years of teaching English in Dublin. Joining the English language school to mark this landmark were international partners and agents, members of the diplomatic corps, university and industry figures, colleagues and friends.
The evening began with a drinks reception and tour of ECI’s year-round school in South Dublin. Celebrations continued in the heart of Dublin at The Convention Centre, which has panoramic views of the city, River Liffey and Wicklow Mountains. The highlight of the evening was a classical concert by Irish soprano Regina Nathan and Italian tenor Gian Luca Pasolini, which showcased Irish and Italian music at its finest.
Since opening in 1986, ECI has developed a wide range of English programmes for different age-groups and needs and built a reputation for quality and academic excellence. Students’ time at ECI is enriched by the many opportunities to experience Irish culture, history and traditions firsthand.
