We offer this comprehensive course to students in advance of their fifth year. The course will consist of 40 classes with experienced teachers. Students will be provided with a booklet at the beginning of this course which covers comprehensively all the skills needed to maximise educational potential for Leaving Cert Higher Level and Ordinary Level Irish.
We focus on the oral Irish examination from the start of the course and students are assisted in formulating and composing their own personal topics. Students will work collaboratively on these topics to gain greater confidence for their oral Irish exam. Work will also cover examples of the Sraith Pictiúir for this exam.
Grammar, essay work and aural work for the Cluasthuiscint exam are also an intrinsic part of the course. Sample essays will be provided to the students. All the prose and poetry course for Leaving Certificate 2020 are covered and we teach students the language they require to deal with prose and poetry questions to maximise grades at leaving cert examination level.
Students will undertake a mock oral Irish exam in the final week of the course. Students will receive their marks and recommendations from the examiners.
