Join us in September!

Congratulations to all our students who recently received their TEG exam grades and certificates in the mail from Ireland! We had over 25 students sit A1 and A2 exams in Washington DC in June, and we are all very proud of their achievements – maith sibh uilig!

If you’re thinking about continuing or returning to Irish, then now is certainly a good time to join a class: all September courses are posted online and, thanks to your feedback, we have some exciting new plans for the upcoming academic year. Firstly, all courses in DC and online have been extended to 7 weeks (Intro, A1, A2 and B1 levels), and DC classes will now start at the earlier time of 6:30pm. Secondly, we have increased our online offerings so that more students can join in, wherever they might be. Thirdly, we added a Language Levels page to our website that explains your route to fluency, as well as an option for students (not attending classes) to follow courses online via our Quizlet and online groups! Finally, for our DC students, the local conversation group (Comhrá DC) and choir (Cór DC) will be restarting in the fall.
Still curious about learning Irish? Would you like to take a free class? We’ll be running an online ‘Seisiún Eolais / Information Session’ on Labor Day, Monday Sept 2nd, from 6:30 – 7:30pm (Eastern), where you can chat with our teachers and learn more about classes, TEG exams and plans for the year ahead. And if you’d like to dip your toes into Irish learning, then why not register for our next ‘Free Intro Class‘, which takes place on the first Saturday of the month, Sept 7th – beidh fáilte romhat!
