An increase of more than 12% in the minimum wage has been approved from January 1st 2024, more than twice the predicted rate of inflation for 2023.
The increase of €1.40 an hour on the current rate of €11.30, taking it to €12.70 per hours, will mean someone on the minimum wage who works a 39 hour week would earn an additional €54.60 per week from this January 1st 2024 to tackle the cost of living.
We're thrilled to share a highlight from #icef2023 in Berlin that truly stands out: our EazyCity team had the opportunity to meet the Spanish Ambassador to Germany. It was a proud and significant moment for us.
The evening unfolded in the stunning setting of the Spanish Embassy in Berlin, filled with great conversations amongst colleagues and international partners of our language study abroad industry.
We are grateful for the Ambassador’s insights and the warm reception we received. Here's to more such inspiring encounters and the continued success of our team!
At EazyCity, we believe in the incredible experiences that come with studying and working abroad. We are very happy to announce the expansion of our renowned study and work abroad programs to the vibrant and enchanting city of Valencia.
Valencia, the third-largest city in Spain, is a city that seamlessly weaves together its historical roots with contemporary living. Our study and work abroad programs in Valencia provide participants with the opportunity to explore the city's rich cultural tapestry, from the stunning architecture of the City of Arts and Sciences to the medieval charm of the Old Town. Students and professionals alike will find themselves immersed in a dynamic environment that fosters personal and professional growth.
What we offer in Valencia:
First of all, I would like to start by thanking you and your agency for this fantastic adventure I am experiencing this month in Ireland.
I still remember when, about three months ago, I was offered this opportunity among the school desks, and how I didn't think twice before deciding to seize it. I immediately felt that this kind of experience was exactly what I needed because I knew that a very important chapter of my life was coming to a close, and I needed a turning point to demonstrate my true self. So, I saw this opportunity as the perfect conclusion to my school journey, but at the same time, as the first lines of a new chapter in my life.
I won't hide that the awareness of a new adventure also brought some apprehensions, such as being away from loved ones for a month in a new country with a language and culture different from mine. I must say, though, that day by day, my fears gave way to curiosity and a desire to get into the game. From the very first day, in fact, I was fascinated by the places and people of this fantastic country.
Furthermore, in the past two weeks, I had the opportunity to work at a language school where I felt comfortable right away. Here, I met a fantastic team with which a beautiful working reality and more were created. It is, in fact, a group of young but responsible people with different nationalities but united by the desire to experience something that will surely remain alive in our minds.
Finally, I would like to emphasize the aspect of the cultural exchange in this experience. In our school, I was fortunate to meet people from different nationalities, from the Irish themselves to Spaniards, Chinese, Brazilians, and even Dominicans.
Personally, I consider meeting these people a significant enrichment for my personal and cultural background. Because it's precisely these encounters that allow for the discovery and getting closer to new stories, ways of life, and fascinating cultures.
In conclusion, I would recommend this experience to anyone because all the fears will not compare to the benefits that will come from it.
Best regards, Nicolò Ferrero
We would like to thank Alex and Gareth from Love 2 Learn Language School in Waterford to support our Felice Veneziani Scholarship and to sponsor Nicolò stay in Waterford
Diversity is an essential aspect of our world. It encompasses differences in ethnicity, culture, language, religion, and more. As young students, you have the opportunity to embrace and learn from diversity, making you better equipped for a globalised society. Here are some tips for inclusion and intercultural communication to help you thrive in diverse environments:
Be curious and open-minded
The first step to embracing diversity is to be curious and open-minded. Ask questions and seek to understand different cultures and customs. Respect and appreciate differences, and avoid making assumptions or stereotypes about individuals or groups.
Learn about different cultures
Take the time to learn about different cultures. Read books, watch videos, and attend cultural events to expand your knowledge and understanding. Ask questions and engage in conversations with individuals from different backgrounds to gain a deeper insight into their experiences.
Effective communication is key to intercultural communication. Be mindful of nonverbal cues such as facial expressions, gestures, and tone of voice. Use clear and simple language, and be patient when communicating with individuals who speak a different language.
Stereotyping can be harmful and create unnecessary barriers to inclusion. Challenge your assumptions and biases, and avoid generalising individuals based on their cultural background. Instead, treat each person as an individual and focus on their unique qualities and strengths.
Finally, embrace and celebrate differences. Recognise that diversity brings richness and creativity to our world, and that we can all learn from each other. By embracing diversity, we can create a more inclusive and harmonious world.
In conclusion, inclusion and intercultural communication are crucial for young students to thrive in a diverse world. By being curious, open-minded, and respectful, we can learn from each other and build stronger relationships. Let's embrace diversity and create a more inclusive and harmonious world!

The recent earthquakes have caused untold damage, leaving thousands homeless and without food, water or warm clothes.
Right now, UNICEF teams are working around the clock to reach every child in need. A donation today will help deliver more humanitarian aid to those who need it most.
