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.

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.
