FULL Beginners’ Irish – Online


These popular courses are aimed at those who would like to learn Irish from the beginning – and, indeed, “rusty returners” who want to make a fresh start with the language. The course will provide a strong foundation in spoken Irish, but care is taken to make sure that learners achieve a solid understanding of essential grammar. While the focus is on Ulster Irish, the tutor will ensure that students are familiar with other dialects. The style is friendly and relaxed, helping students to enjoy their first steps in Irish. There are three levels:

  • Term One – for total beginners, this will introduce you to the absolute basics of Irish.
  • Term Two – you should have a grasp of the basics and be able to say a little about yourself.
  • Term Three – you will be able to talk more about yourself and what you do, express likes/dislikes, say where you live etc.
