What you'll learn
- Engage in a basic conversation in Irish and understand essential words and phrases which they can use in engaging with fluent speakers or whilst visiting Ireland!
- All students need is a hunger for learning our beautiful language.
My name is Siobhan Ní Ghallchóir and I would love to help you learn the basics in starting and maintaining a simple conversation in the Irish language. I won’t be boring you with grammatical terms or tenses, or confusing things, instead I will get down to the nitty gritty! I will be launching another course shortly which will cover these more advanced topics. So for now we’re just getting stuck in to learning basic phrases and words which you may find useful.
Perhaps you’re thinking of visiting us here in Ireland and would like your ‘cupla focal’, or you are longing to learn the language of your ancestors, but whatever your reasons, my main aim is to bring to you an enjoyable learning experience.
Who this course is for:
- Students who are at a beginner or intermediate level in learning Irish and who have a passion for an Ghaeilge!
A bit about myself! I’ve spent most of my life here in the Irish Gaeltacht in west Co. Donegal. I received my higher degree in Irish in St. Patrick’s College, Drumcondra, a teacher training University in Dublin. I presently work to promote and showcase our rural Irish Community to create business and opportunities.
