OUR STORY

We are a team of teachers and language specialists who enjoy helping others learn the Irish language. Since 2009 we have been providing Irish language classes and events in Washington DC and online. Our mission has always been to promote and cultivate a vibrant community of Irish speakers, old and new, through a mixture of courses and fun, community events. While we focus on all 4 language skills, we place particular emphasis on conversation – hence the Let’s Learn Irish slogan is ‘Bígí Ag Caint!’ which translates as ‘Get Talking!’

Throughout the year we endeavour to help people learn and practise Irish through:

  • Weekly, live online Irish classes,
  • Weekly evening and 1-day classes in Washington DC,
  • Free Starter Irish class each month for new learners,
  • Online and in-person community events for students outside of classes.

 

If you’re eager to get started, then be sure to register for our Free Starter Class, or sign up for a 7-week Introductory course. If you already speak Irish, then jump into one of our A1, A2 or B1 courses. You can keep up to date on what we do by adding your name to our mailing list on the Contact page.
