Classes start again at the Greater Danbury Irish Cultural Center (6 Lake Ave., Danbury) on Saturday, Oct. 2nd at 10:30 AM for the Intermediate class and Monday, Oct. 4th at 6:45 PM for the Beginners and 8:15 PM for the 2nd Year Level class.
The Intermediate class is actually a new addition to the school this year as this class will focus on students who have more than 2 years of Irish study.
The Irish Gaelic Circle of CT and Daltaí na Gaeilge will have displays in the Cultural tent of the Festival this weekend starting on Friday, Sept. 24th. I will give a half hour lesson on Irish entitled Enough Irish to Get By. See the website for more info on this excellent festival: http://www.danburyirishfestival.com/cultural.htm
Registration for Irish Language classes will also be available at the Festival.
The Irish Gaelic Circle is dedicated to teaching and promoting the Irish Language in the Western CT / Hudson Valley NY area in particular and in North America in general.
Classes at the Beginner level meet weekly on Saturday mornings at the GDICC. Intermediate classes meet weekly via Zoom. There are Fall and Spring Semesters each year and there are summer classes also. The classes are taught in a friendly atmosphere with the emphasis on being able to communicate in Irish. Attendance at classes can also be done online via Zoom.
Private students and other classes for home schools, senior centers and community centers with different times and locations can be put together by arrangement.
One day Irish language programs for Festivals and events around the country can be arranged.
We have access to enjoyable single day and weekend Irish Language events in the tri-state area for those who want to take advantage of these opportunities to improve their fluency.
ESTABLISHING IRISH LANGUAGE PROGRAMS
For those areas where there are no teachers available but there is a group of interested learners, I can provide training and a program to follow for new teachers. Please contact me for details.
