Eithne Ní Ghallchobhair will be known to many as one of the tutors on Oideas Gael’s annual summer courses for adults in Co Donegal which are celebrating 25 years in existence this year. Well, it would seem that the work does not stop in the summer for Ní Ghallchobhair; she has just written a course for beginners of Irish, Enjoy Irish (Oideas Gael).
The book is full-colour, contains exercises, cartoons and role-plays and is aimed at giving the learner a sound foundation in conversational Irish. Also included is a CD which includes exercises and role-plays spoken by native Irish speakers.
Writing in the introduction, one of Oideas Gael’s founders, Liam Ó Cuinneagáin, states: “A sound foundation is essential to getting off to a good start in most projects in life and this is the ingredient supplied by our course. It will enable you to set out on a journey of discovery and enjoy the magical world of the Irish language.”
