This month Nuachtlitir Ghaelchultúir spoke to Ciara Fagan, a primary school teacher who has done an EPV course with Gaelchultúr in the past and who plans to do another one this summer.
There’s plenty of information in this month’s edition of Nuachtlitir Ghaelchultúir about events run by the company itself and by other organisations. So whether you’re looking for a language course or an Irish language hobby, you’ll find all the best advice here.
Gaelchultúr first offered online EPV courses for primary school teachers in 2009 and in the intervening ten years there have been nearly 8,000 registrations for those courses.
This autumn, Coláiste na hÉireann/Gaelchultúr will be offering the Postgraduate Diploma in Translation for the seventh time and this article contains advice for those who intend to undertake the entrance exam to the course.
At a graduation ceremony held in the Mansion House in Dublin in mid-April, the Dioplóma Iarchéime san Aistriúchán was awarded to the fifth group of students to undertake the course with Coláiste na hÉireann/Gaelchultúr.
Coláiste na hÉireann/Gaelchultúr is looking for a Lecturer in Irish for a full-time permanent position. The successful applicant will be based in the institute’s offices on Clare Street, Dublin 2.
The days are getting longer and it won’t be long until Gaelchultúr’s summer evening classes begin!
For a third year in a row, Bord na Gaeilge UCD will be running a summer school, Tionól Gaeilge, in the university. This school, which is being organised by the Bord in conjunction with Gaelchultúr, will take place on the Belfield campus between Monday, 1 July and Friday, 5 July.
Every term, we here at Gaelchultúr welcome students from all walks of life who come to us to brush up on their Irish. And now, thanks to the internet, our learners don’t even need to be based in Ireland – as Antaine Ó hÉimhín’s story shows.
Réaltán Ní Leannáin has been teaching with Gaelchultúr since September 2018. When she’s not in front of a class, she spends her time writing, reading or on the airwaves. Nuachtlitir Ghaelchultúir spoke to her recently to find out more about her.
If you’ve applied for the Professional Master of Education with Hibernia College or if you intend to do so in the future there’s a good chance that preparation for the Irish interview is on your mind. If so, you might like to attend the 8-week Preparatory Course or the One-Day Intensive Preparatory Course which will be held in Gaelchultúr’s education centre shortly.
We have a great deal on offer this month for Gaelchultúr’s newsletter readers. If you register for any of the three courses we have listed here, we will add one extra month to your registration - but you only have until the 31st of May to avail of this deal!
