Moycullen Basketball Club has announced an exciting new partnership with the Atlantic Language School.
Both Moycullen Basketball Club and the Atlantic Language School have arisen from humble origins to be amongst the biggest organisations in their chosen spheres in Ireland.
“We are delighted to become an official partner of Moycullen Basketball Club,” said John Daly, CEO of Atlantic Language School.
“The Atlantic School is very much Galway based. Galway is a huge part of our offering to students who come to study with us so supporting clubs like Moycullen Basketball who themselves offer so much to the lifeblood of Galway and its sporting culture is a pleasure.”
The school provides a wide range of English language and professional training courses delivered by expert teachers right in the heart of Galway City.
Founded in 1993, Atlantic Language School has welcomed thousands of students from over 100 different countries to Galway, which it correctly markets as ‘one of Ireland’s liveliest cities’.
“The school is a brilliant example of everything that is good about Galway….someone we are thrilled to be working with.Moycullen Superleague Head Coach John Cunningham
Their campus, situated across from the new Bus Station and a stone’s throw from Eyre Square, comprises a custom designed 34 classroom school equipped with everything needed from interactive whiteboards to hybrid streaming technology. All teachers in the school are TESOL certified and have university degrees.
Availing of the services on offer at Atlantic Language School is Moycullen power-forward Ayberk Taylan.
Ayberk, who has immediately made a superb impact both on and off the court with Moycullen has glowing reports from his interactions with the school as he delves into a new language, country and culture having moved to Galway from Turkey this season.
“The attitude of the teachers is very kind and helpful. It is always so easy to ask for support both from the education staff and the other workers.
“Education is provided in various ways like online material and personal interaction. Everyday they expect us to participate in written and oral practices.
Ayberk describes the classes as fun with games a key part of the process. “It increases participation and really helps us to remember what is taught.”
Speaking about the partnership, Moycullen’s Superleague Head Coach John Cunningham said it is one he hopes can continue over coming years.
“The school is a brilliant example of everything that is good about Galway, the international, multicultural atmosphere, the entrepreneurial ambition of John Daly who has developed the business.
“They are someone we are thrilled to be working with.
“European imports have become an integral part of the league and, between what they get from us and then the more professional language training from the Atlantic School, I think we can offer a great experience to the young men who come play for us and join the Moycullen Basketball family. That is great to see.”
The Atlantic Language School has a proud history of supporting organisations in Galway including partnerships with Galway United, Macnas and the Arts Festival. You can find more information about the school at www.atlanticlanguage.com.
