Learning Gaeilge is a conscious activity that is usually applied inside a classroom while acquiring Gaeilge is a subconscious process that thrives on active participation and extended exposure. Language immersion is language acquisition in its purest form. By committing wholeheartedly to a 3-week immersion course, language acquisition follows automatically. Central to a balanced approach is having a language learning programme (classwork) that complements language acquisition (outside of classwork). This means that communication / conversation / everyday dialogue & chit chat/ pronunciation are all key elements in the learning program. We regard it as our role/ duty to do all we can to ensure that our students acquire Gaeilge where the language is internalised without deliberate memorization.
Acquiring Gaeilge is dependent on three key factors:
Your Attitude / Your Learning Partners / Your Attentiveness
Lurgan ar Líne
Lurgan ar Líne is an online course that will be periodically available throughout the school year that aims to utilise an online platform to maintain a continued focus on Irish speaking among 2nd level students.
Lurgan23: will be a brand new campus to accommodate the next generation of Gaeilgeóirí. This state of the art facility promises to be a culmination of over a decade of work and experience, shaped by tens of thousands of students and will be used as a jumping-off point for bigger and better things to come. Hope to be completed by 2023.
Teanglann Ar Líne (Online language Lab) - OIDE is a unique and innovative online language lab that is being developed on an ongoing & voluntary basis by Col. Lurgan.
Cainéal YouTube – Cuimhní Cinn ó siar na mblianta (memories of past summers). These projects have built up a substantial following and have introduced the language to a world audience.
Tá todhchaí na Gaeltachta fite fuaite le hoideachas na Gaeilge
Our sole mission..
….is to promote Gaeilge, the cornerstone of Irish identity and culture. The Coláiste is situated in Indreabhán, a Gaeltacht area, where the language has been passed down for thousands of years. Students reside in Tithe Lóistin (local families) for the duration of their three week course with an average of 11 students accommodated with each family. We are non-profit and while Mná Tí receive some State support the coláiste does not. We operate on an admin cost of less than 6% with the rest of our budget being reinvested in running/developing our cúrsaí Gaeilge for our students.
