Emilí Ní Iarnáin, who is a primary school teacher in Galway, has done two of Gaelchultúr’s online EPV courses. She recently explained to Nuachtlitir Ghaelchultúir why those courses appealed to her.
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 is offering nine online courses to primary school teachers this year, all of which can be completed on a smartphone, a tablet, a laptop and, of course, a desktop computer. And for those who prefer a more traditional approach, the company is offering two classroom-based courses for the first time this summer.
