Autumn schedule of Irish language classes in Naas

Gaelchultúr has launched its autumn schedule of Irish language evening classes in Naas. The classes will commence 20 - 23 September 2010 and will be held in Naas Community Centre, Mc Auley Place, Sallins Road, Naas. Learners will attend a two-hour session (7 – 9 p.m.) one night a week for 12 weeks. Classes are available at up to eight different levels, from complete beginners to advanced.

Gaelchultúr recently announced the launch of its new multimedia course, Gaeilge gan Stró! – Lower Intermediate Level, aimed at adult learners of Irish. It’s suitable for those who have already learned Irish and who still understand some of the language. It aims to give learners the confidence and language skills necessary to communicate in Irish in everyday situations and to help them understand speakers of the three main dialects. The emphasis is on developing speaking and listening skills but learners are also given opportunities to read and write the language.

Commenting on the classes in Naas and on the new multimedia course, Éamonn Ó Dónaill, Gaelchultúr’s Director of Education and one of the founders of the company, said: “Our Irish language evening classes give adults the chance to learn Irish in an enjoyable way and become confident enough to speak the language. We hope that our new multimedia course will also help learners reach a level where they feel comfortable conversing in the language. Gaelchultúr has taught thousands of adults through our evening classes and our training in the public sector, and the same learner-centred approach to teaching is used in Gaeilge gan Stró! – Lower Intermediate Level.” Copies of the course can be bought on
