Description

Immerse yourself in the Irish language and its culture.

Building upon previous courses, Irish 107 will help you take the next steps in learning the Irish language. You will broaden your ability to converse in the language by learning how to describe people by personality and appearance and converse about shopping for clothes.

By the end of the course, you will have learned how to engage in practical conversational topics and you will learn about the genitive case and future tenses. And of course, you’ll have an even deeper appreciation for the Irish language - and its important place in modern Irish life!

This course would suit learners from all over the world, including the Irish diaspora and non-natives with an enthusiasm for Irish culture.
