Cúrsa A and B:

For children between 12-18 years of age:
This is a residential Three-week course intended to develop the pupils’ ability in Irish, especially in the spoken language, and to encourage their appreciation and awareness for Irish language and tradition. The college has vast experience in running this type of course, a course in which the children are given an opportunity to get to know life and natural amenities of the island as a group. To this end learning through activities, both in the classroom and out and about is emphasized throughout. In the formal classes the pupils are divided according to ability. During the other activities and in the houses however, they are not. Each pupil’s ability is assessed through a short interview at the beginning of the course and a progress report is issued for each pupil at the end of the course.
A special feature of each course is that the pupils stay in Island homes where the locals talk in Irish to them about everyday things. The Island people and college staff are working hand in hand in order to ensure that the aims and philosophy of the college benefit the pupils who come to stay with us each summer.
