This language course is geared to accommodate adults at all learning stages, from those just starting to those who are advanced but desire practice. There are four levels: beginner, intermediate, high-intermediate, and advanced. Class tuition is by specialist teachers, native apeakers who use proven methods of language instruction and are themselves native speakers. The teachers are coordinated via Oideas Gael, and travel to San Francisco especially for this course.
Each day's study time will consist of intensive tutorials with attention directed toward spoken Irish and aimed at correct pronunciation, proper idiom, and development of vocabulary, particularly contemporary language. The intention is to foster conversational ability and fluency. Between classes, over meals, and during our seisiún each evening, you are encouraged to keep practicing your Irish with people from all levels, while enjoying the craic— it is of great benefit to hear Irish spoken ‘live’ around you, taking part to whatever degree you are able! (There will be the opportunity for an extra seisiún Sunday evening after the course ends, for those who want to stay and play.)
Fee includes tuition and food (sandwiches, soup & fruit for supper Friday evening; cheese, Irish bread & coffee/tea available each morning; coffee/tea breaks; full meals for lunch & dinner Saturday, and lunch Sunday). Out-of-town attendees to make their own accommodation arrangements. We'll provide suggestions for nearby motels if needed. The course venue is the United Irish Cultural Center, in S.F.
