Lurgan-Ar-Líne -What Is It?
Courses will consist of 2 weeks of coursework with a 4 hour timetable 6 days a week.
Daily schedule will consist of four 20-minute classes inter-spaced with follow on language lab independent learning component using OIDE (Lurgan’s online language lab).
Online classes are delivered using the Zoom platform and class groups are restricted to 10 learners. This allows teachers to demonstrate, instruct and facilitate a wide array of interactions, including breakout groups. Each lesson will have its own downloadable pfd outlining the exact language, dialogue & exchanges which are targeted in each lesson.
The approach is to focus on authentic conversational skills supported with high-quality follow-on audio content that learners can dependently work with after each class.
Students recordings are assessed by the teachers who give concise verbal feedback using the OIDE platform.
Daily scores & audio feedbacks are also available to parents/guardians as well an MP4 (video) version of each online class.

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.
