A fresh start with Irish

It's not like you remember from school!

We will help you to build on your existing knowledge and introduce you to new topics and vocabulary so you can discuss what interests you.

Classes are taught in small groups with friendly teachers with a focus more on speaking and less on grammar (although it is still useful!). Sometimes you get a wee bit of homework but it is to help reinforce the lesson and provide practice.

If you don't think that your Irish is up to scratch, you may be interested in our introduction to Irish class.
