Classes and Events in Term 2

Haigh, gach duine! Bhuel, tá Téarma 2 faoi lán seoil anois, agus nach muidne atá sásta!! Classes and community events in Term 2 are keeping us all busy. Another set of 7-week classes is underway, and there’s no let up… 

At the Irish Embassy in 2018!

So what’s new? Well, for starters, this term has seen the introduction of a new online course, Amhráin na Nollag, where Múinteoir Brian is covering a range of Christmas songs – keep a watch out for updates on this year’s Cóisir na Nollag/Christmas Party, where we will hopefully get to share some songs from this course. Múinteoirí Quinton and Caitríona, as ever, are making topics fun and interesting in their respective classes. And many of you continue to enjoy reading Kerry’s blog posts as she reports on her learning and reflections in these strange, socially-distanced times. Luckily, we have a monthly occasion where we can all catch up online, regardless of where we are located – Oíche na mBall/Members’ Night! This month’s get together is scheduled for Friday, November 27th.

For those of you new to this online language community, tá fáilte romhat! New members are welcome at any time, whether for classes or online community events. Join us every Tuesday or Thursday evening for open comhrá sessions – upcoming topics include hobbies, describing people and daily life (you’ll find the full list on our community page). If you’re thinking of starting your Irish language journey, then you’ll be glad to know that our next Free Starter Irish Class takes place on Sunday, Dec. 6th, and new Introductory courses begin in January 2021. If you have some of the language basics, then check out the curricula for upcoming A1, A2 or B1 classes.

Those are the main highlights from Term 2! We’re all making progress – ag cleachtadh na Gaeilge agus ag dul chun cinn – and we’re very thankful for that. Wherever you might be over the next week, bíodh Lá an Altaithe Sona Daoibh – Happy Thanksgiving!
