Free Irish-Language Events this Summer
‘A chairde, tá muid ar bís’ (super-excited)! We have a series of free language events lined up this summer for Intermediate and Ard Rang students. Each event will take place at 4pm on Saturday at our classroom in Friendship Heights. As well as a great opportunity to learn new vocabulary and improve your Irish, these events are also an excellent way to meet new students and keep the language community growing here. To ensure we have your seat and notes ready for you, you must register your attendance on our Events page. Of course, before all that, we have our Introductory Intensive this coming Saturday – ag súil go mór leis!
THIS SATURDAY – 1-Day Introductory Intensive
For anyone yet to take the plunge into Irish, we are running a 1-Day Introductory Intensive this Saturday, July 9th! We’ll be covering topics such as Introductions, General Conversation, Hobbies, Occupations, Likes/Dislikes, Numbers, Telling the Time and more!
If you or a friend is ready for a new challenge, then this is it! We are looking forward to helping you get started speaking as Gaeilge. The class will run from 10–4pm in Friendship Heights and a lovely lunch is provided. You can register here.
