Hello, we are Teresa and Silvia.

We want to share. with you our passion for Cork, a city where living is as pleasant as learning. We have invested some months of work to create Hola Students!, our new venture. Our objective is simple: help children and adults enjoy Cork and learn English, integrating them in an Irish family and participating of all activities that County Cork offers.



Cork is the perfect place to live & learn English. It’s not just us who say it, our clients confirm it.

Take a look at the following video.

You will stay in a nice caring host family that will strive to help you adjust to the Irish lifestyle and help you resolve any concerns you might have during your stay. We will try to match the ages of the children to the visiting child.

Primary Education in Ireland

Primary Education in Ireland consists of eight years. Children start at 5-6 years in the junior infants year, with a shortened day, to help the children to adjust to the routine and discipline of the school system. Then it goes from 1st Class to 6th Class finishing at 12 yrs of age approximately. We would only work with the one school which we believe is the only international option. We would recommend you the last two years: 5th and 6th Class, ages 10-11 and 11-12 years old.

Adult Adult

We will find you the best choices for accommodation depending on your needs: single, couple, family, etc and provide you with information on English academies. There is also the possibility of individual tuition from a qualified TEFL teacher.



Our ethos is simple: We will play with our strengths by providing an authentic experience with handpicked families that will integrate each child within their own families and communities.

Thank you Hola Students! for your commitment, dedication and affection with the development of our son in Ireland. The organisation, the selection of families, continuous tracking from the directors of Hola Students! they made our son’s learning project become one of our best life experiences. From here, my thanks to Teresa and Silvia for their good work.

My experience in Ireland was one of the best during my life. Both families were great people and the agency gave me the support that I needed, everyone was kind, in other words I will definitely recommend Cork.

Immersing myself in the Spanish language through the help and care of Hola students has been a wonderful experience. It has cultivated my love for the Spanish language and culture.  I can’t wait to return to Spain in the future.
