Irish: Beginners (A0)


This course is designed for people with very little or no experience of Irish.

It will introduce you to the language, giving you the basic tools to communicate with others with a focus on speaking and interacting in Irish. You will learn how to talk about your hobbies and local area, your daily life and much more. The emphasis will be on speaking and listening, but reading and writing activities will also feature.

Learners will play an active part in each class, with group work allowing them to practise what they have learned. The course will be conducted in a warm and friendly atmosphere, and provide the first steps in learning more about a langauge that is all around us.
