New September Classes!

Summer classes 2016!
Summer classes 2016!

A chairde, we have had a wonderful summer of Irish classes and events here in DC! Many thanks to everyone who attended our social events where we learned about a Wimpy Kid’s diary, traded insults and discussed An Gorta Mór, all as Gaeilge! We also want to welcome into our community all the new students who attended our 1-Day Irish classes during the summer – tá fáilte romhaibh go léir!

Now, as the tail-end of summer slowly transitions into fall, hopefully we find ourselves refreshed and ready for new and exciting challenges! For many of us, the period after summer break brings with it a renewed vigour to continue (or begin) our Irish language learning…

Social events and classes are a great way to facilitate this learning journey, where we can meet fellow students who also want to speak Irish here in Washington DC, and in turn keep the language alive and vibrant. If you’re a beginner or a more advanced learner, you will be glad to know that new classes start in just two weeks!! See below for class details and info on discounted registration. If you have any questions about classes, please don’t hesitate to contact us…agus tá súil againn go bhfeicfimid sibh go luath / we hope to see you soon!
