I only came for 6 months but from the moment I arrived, I knew that I would stay for longer. Moving to Dublin gives you more than just learning English. You learn about yourself, you know how strong you are and everything you can achieve in a short time. Dublin is a city with so much to appreciate and to discover not only of the city itself but it makes you see life in a completely different way and makes you grow as a person.
I've so many stories to tell starting from my arrival in Dublin and this story will continue…
When I first arrived in Ireland, I wanted to share my experience and help newcomers from South Korea. So I started my blog (www.ireland04.com) and it is one of the most popular blogs covering Ireland for South Koreans. Every year, I met many students thorough NED Training Centre. Most of them have the same question about Ireland and I always write on my blog what people want to know about it. I also like to include many travel tips feel will be useful for people new to Ireland. Thanks to my blog, I was invited as a guest speaker on a Korean travel Pod Cast '???? ????2 (Tak PD`s travel talk)'. My favourite moment is when students come to me before going back to Korea and say ‘thank you for your help’.
I love to help the Korean students of NED Training Centre. I want them to have all the information that I couldn’t have when I arrived. I’m working at NED Training Centre to help all those people who are exactly what I was in 2010.

I originally came to Ireland for a short period of time to improve my English and travel around Europe. However, after 8 months I just couldn't leave this beautifull island!
Then I got the opportunity to join the amazing NED Training Centre team, it was an offer that I couldn't refuse, so here I am... enjoying this awesome experience.
One of the things I enjoy most (along with rock music) is travelling, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures and places. I grab every opportunity I have to do it and this has been one of them.
I came to Ireland because a while ago I thought that I wanted to live part of my life in this beautiful country, so I saved the money and I came. And of course I do not regret it; it has been a great experience in every way.
Now I’m working at NED Training Centre and the job has been perfect for me because I can do something that I like and apply my skills to it.
Audiovisual communicator by profession, with more than 8 years of experience in television direction.
Over the years, photography has become my great passion.
Around five years ago I made the hardest decision of my life leaving my family and friend in Brazil to live the incredible experience of studying abroad and to be honest … stepping out of our comfort zone is not easy but sometimes is necessary.
We will never know how strong we are or how far we can go until we face our fears and start to believe that we are capable of great things.
After so long, here I am discovering myself in this place where today I can call my second home and having the opportunity to encourage hundreds of people to do the same.
Let’s do it together?
''All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them''.
I keep moving, so do you.
I love Dublin, and I hope you will too.
If you haven't seen Ireland, please tell me, I can help you.
I'm from Malaysia, you are from elsewhere, let’s meet in Dublin.
Don't stop yourself from exploring the world.
If you can't find the door of opportunity, no worries, I’ll help you.
I like to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone and embrace every opportunity to make the best of life.
I travelled to many countries, discovering new places and living the life I always dreamed of.
Today I work at NED Training Centre Limerick, helping students achieve their dreams of studying in Ireland. I'm passionate about ensuring you have a memorable and fun experience while studying with us. I know first-hand how rewarding it can be, and would love to help you achieve your goals.
‘’ To travel is to live.’’
Upon graduating in Administration and earning a post graduate degree in Strategic Business, I came to Ireland only to improve my CV but when I arrived I found a new reality that made me change all my plans. Ireland is beautiful, with a rich culture and weather so different from what we are used to. We can have sun, rain and snow on the same day, can you believe it? Meeting new people, discovering other places, other stories, that feeling that there is always something new waiting for me prevents me from returning back to Brazil.
Enjoying every opportunity of this experience and helping other people to come and live this experience is what I love to do. In Ireland, I’ve found the best version of myself. And you? What will you find?
Coming to Ireland was one of the best decisions she made in life. She considers the experience of living abroad completely worth it! Using a language that is not her native tongue while working with people from different cultures has given her an incredible experience and changed her perception on life. Paula believes this opportunity is for people who want to grow by their experiences and become more confident.
She loves the work that she does at NED Training Centre. Through sharing her experiences she helps students to grow both personally and professionally.
Her hobbies include spending time with her dog, music, sports, meeting people and travelling.
Travelling abroad has always been my dream, I have always wanted to get to know different nationalities, landscapes and soak up everything that allows me to keep growing as a person.
Many changes have occurred in me thanks to this evolution of mentality, thanks to learning to look at things with other eyes. Dublin has given me a great opportunity, this experience has changed me forever and for the better! I have learnt to look at life with different eyes, to love myself and to cherish family and friends and the time we have to spend together! I have grown into a more tolerant and loving person, a person who enjoys learning everyday!
I think that this experience is unique and it changes you forever, that's why I want to encourage you to dare; to come to Ireland and study with us.
My life and career have always been driven by a strong passion for learning about new cultures thus I left Chile two years ago in order to have an international experience and fulfill my dream of living overseas. By now, I consider myself a full-time expat since I've been living in Canada, Denmark, Germany and now on the beautiful island of Ireland.
I have a background in Public Relations and I am passionate about Marketing and Digital Media. I have recently joined NED Training Centre and I work as a Sales and Student Advisor within the Chilean team. I hope to be able to inspire and help more people to achieve their dreams and to come to learn a second language here in Ireland.
Professionally I started in the area of health; in research and patient care, however my major experience is focused on sales and marketing, with 6 years experience in the corporate area to improve the health system of Mexico as head of sales, in the hospital Medica Sur SA de CV Mexico as an executive in high specialty stores. Later, I made the decision to come to Dublin to study English, which was an excellent decision, because this experience has helped me grow both personally and professionally.
Sabrina thinks that one of the things that marks NED Training Centre as different from other school is the personalised attention that is provided to the students before and after their arrival. She has a vocation for helping people to achieve their dreams and live those amazing experiences that she had. Coming to Ireland was one of the best decisions Sabrina made in her life. She doesn’t hesitate to recommend this experience to her students. It has allowed her not only learn the most useful language but meet new people, cultures, travel all over Europe and more!
I have been living in Dublin for 6 months. Every day I discover new places and learn about new cultures in this lovely and beautiful city. Every moment here is so valuable for me. I have friends from different countries. We share our stories, our cultures with each other and we love discovering Ireland’s amazing nature together.
“Learning English” is important in our life. But my opinion is that learning English abroad, where there are a lot of opportunities, is the most important thing. Dublin is the one of best places to do that. You can meet new people, discover places, learn new cultures here.
I’m your Turkish friend who you can find in Dublin. And I would like to help you with your questions. Please don’t hesitate to contact me!
I then moved to Ireland in 2014.
My favourite Japanese author said that her favourite country is Ireland so I kind of ``had to`` move here.
Very nice people, beautiful nature, simple food, and I even like the weather too, because it's easy to find a rainbow so often! I find them breathtaking.
Please join us and find your new colourful life in Dublin!
It’s unbelievable that something I had believed to be just for 8 months has turned in 2 years. During this time I was able to study, learn, change and travel a lot. After this, I am really happy to work for NED training Centre from our office in São Paulo - Brazil because I can continue to help people to realize the same dream I dreamed before.
We have a lot to talk about before you decide to travel abroad, so, do not hesitate in contacting us. We will receive you with delightful Irish tea at the office or we could arrange some calls and messages via whatsapp: 598 97240227.
See you soon!
In my work at NED Training Centre I learned that the reasons why someone chooses to study abroad are varied, depending on the interests of each person and the stage they are at in their lives. A program of studies can be carried out for various reasons, but whatever the reason it is a significant experience. The important thing is to focus on what we want to get the most out of this experience.
I visited Dublin for a short time, enough to understand the type of people who would choose to live there. It is a city that (even while suffering horrible jetlag) I thought about staying in long term as it feels like a familiar place. It is a city to walk alone or in company. Walking alone is one of the things I like the most. In Dublin, crossing the entire port area to get to the Poolbeg chimneys and having my own photo of the city's symbol, was one of the best walks I did.
It is also true that someone told me that I was not really getting to know the real Dublin because the city offered me, as a present, in the middle of May, five sunny days with tulips blooming at St. Patrick's Cathedral. I have to go back a cloudy day, those typical Irish days for which everyone returns.
I grew up in a small touristic town in Chihuahua, Mexico and I was always in contact with languages and with nature. When I was 13 years old I discovered my passion for the guitar and started studying music. I'm self-taught. Later on, I continued my musical studies in the city of Chihuahua as well as finishing my Bachelor's degree. in Mechanical Engineering.
I like to discover new things and to learn something new every day. I am convinced that the best investment is in your own self, in education, new abilities and experiences.
Getting to know different countries has opened my mind and made me see the world and my own country from a new and different perspective, which is better.
Travelling to new and unknown places is exciting, I know that whoever considers it can achieve it, sometimes we only need a little push.
I was born in Stratford, Texas but when I was a kid I moved to Chihuahua, Mexico. Since I was a child I felt curious about English; English books and literature. My passion led me to study a Bachelor's degree in English where I completed a dissertation on Chicano Literature.
I think life is full of opportunities so I decided to become self-taught. I had been teaching myself and learning from other people to write, draw, perform and model. I have written 4 plaquettes of short stories and poems, organized an alternative show called “Teatro Macabro” in which I perform burlesque and promote all types of talent. I also model for the agency New icon and participate in humanitarian activities among a group of Pin-Up models.
I am a big fan of applied linguistics. I have been an English teacher for 7 years. It is an honor to be part of the NED Training Centre team and to continue learning and teaching. Helping others is one of the most gratifying experiences I have ever had.
I originally went to Ireland for a year and I actually ended up staying there for almost 8 years! and I can tell you that I do not regret my decision; the opportunities I´ve gotten while living there were amazing and I could grow not only on a personal level but on a professional one too. Going to Ireland changed my life and I love that my job is to encourage people to do the same!
I´m a very positive, glass half full type of person that will always go the extra mile to help students and people around me.
I´m a teacher of English and Spanish as second language and I also studied business. I love to travel, I think that is the best way to learn about the history and the culture of a country. I hope many of you follow your dreams and dare to think big, don´t be afraid, we´ll be with you every step of the way!
