Irish language classes in Carlow

Following the unprecedented success of the Gaelchultúr adult Irish evening classes in Carlow over the last ten years, Glór Cheatharlach has announced a new series of classes for spring 2019 which will commence in Carlow at the beginning of February.

The courses were first launched in Carlow in September 2008 and have been hugely successful with many participants coming back again and again to take part in the courses.

There’s a variety of levels on offer to suit all learners and improvers. Courses will commence the week of February 4, 2019 and a special reduced price of €180 is also on offer to Carlow learners who sign up online prior to this date.

Four levels will be on offer this term from beginners and elementary to lower and upper intermediate classes.

The emphasis is on getting the participants speaking the language and there is a level to suit everybody regardless of their current ability from those who have never spoken a word of Irish to those wishing to improve on their ‘Cúpla Focal’ as well as those who want to improve their fluency.

Beginners and Elementary will be held on Monday evenings in the Carlow Cathedral Parish Centre, College Street while the Intermediate levels will be on Tuesday evenings in the New Oak Community Centre.

All classes run from 7-9pm for 10 weeks.

While the beginners’ course is for absolute beginners the elementary level is the starting point for those who may not have used their cúpla focal for quite a while but who have some basic knowledge of the language from school.

Those unsure which course to choose can do a quick self assessment on the Gaelchultúr website www.gaelchultur.com which will recommend the level which suits them best or give us a call to discuss.

Registration is now open online or by calling 1890 252 900. Further information available from www.gaelchultur.com or from Glór Cheatharlach on (085) 1340047, 087 2857048 or by emailing emma@glorcheatharlach.ie
