Beginners Irish GaelicSaturday October 26, 2019
10:00 AM until 12:45 PM
Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library.
This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.
Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history. Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country. It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.
Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.
