We offer this comprehensive course to students in advance of their final Junior Certificate 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 for Junior 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 be prepared for the Junior Cert oral exam and this will give them an excellent basis for moving on to the Leaving Certificate Oral examination in the coming years. Students will work collaboratively on these topics to gain greater confidence for their oral Irish exam. Work will also cover all the 5 Sraith Pictiúir and 12 rólghlacadh for this exam.
Grammar, composition work and aural work for the Cluasthuiscint exam is also an intrinsic part of the course. All the prose and poetry exam questions and solutions are covered and we
teach students the language they need to deal with prose and poetry questions to maximise grades at Junior 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.
