About Us

About SK Language Programmes Ltd.


The agency was founded in 2000. We run a number of programmes in Ireland for both teenagers and adults.

We have been placing au pairs with Irish families for over 20 years. Our au pair placement service is available to families in Dublin and the greater Leinster area. Our au pair agency has placed over 3,000 au pairs into Ireland and are delighted to share our expertise and experience with Irish families and au pairs alike.

Our summer camps in Arklow and Aughrim welcome hundreds of foreign teenagers each July. We also place teenagers on immersion programmes with Irish families throughout the country. Furthermore, we organise school tours into Ireland throughout the year. 

We run evening classes throughout the year at Arklow Language School for adults and a volunteer work programme. We also organise linguistic cultural exchange mini-stays for groups of adults visiting Ireland.
