Talking the talk

Conradh na Gaeilge are running two one-day courses in Dublin (Sunday 11th April) and Galway (Saturday 17th April) for students who intend to sit the Leaving Cert oral exam. The aim of the courses, says the organisation, is to improve the confidence and speaking skills of students. The emphasis will be on topics of conversation, pronunciation, useful phrases and tips on how to approach the oral. Participants will sit an individual mock exam which will be recorded and the students will be given personal evaluation. Conradh na Gaeilge teacher, Jacqueline Uí Mhuirí, says that the mock oral will be “hugely beneficial” as it gives pupils a chance to focus on any weaknesses before the real exam. Cost of the course is €105.
