Some facts about our classes

We follow the TEG syllabus as set out by NUI Maynooth. This is the Irish version of the standard European language framework. We do not currently have the capacity to teach beyond B1 levels at present

We are not an exam centre, but students can choose to travel to Maynooth to sit the official TEG exams.

Since we are a community group all our teachers are volunteers.

Classes are very informal usually lasting 75 mins and are located in a public bar area. Drinking alcohol is permitted in the classes (within reason of course).

There are no fees for any of our classes, however we do encourage all members to support the venue by purchasing a drink or at least a packet of peanuts.

There is an optional second part to the classes where the students of all levels get together to find out anout a theme or a piece of Irish culture.
