Cúrsa Gaeilge ar líne do lucht SCG | OCG. Online course for Irish Language Requirement

Due to demand three course options are offered to SCG | OCG participants,

  • one for SCG participants who are absolute beginners and who require a foundation Irish Language programme before embarking on the SCG syllabus;
  • the second course is for SCG participants who have sufficient knowledge to embark on the SCG syllabus.
  • the third is for participants following the OCG pathway.

Participants attending both courses:

  • receive the class materials in advance of each class by email;
  • receive a recording of each class following the class.

The latter enables participants to review the content / teachings from each class at their own pace and their own convenience. The recordings also enable participants to catch up on any class they may miss during the course of the ten week series.

  • Modúl 1 | 10 classes – covering  Units / Aonad 1 – 9 from Cóir Ghaoithe for SCG teachers and Sruth na Maoile for OCG teachers.
  • Modúl 2 | 10 classes – covering  Units / Aonad 10 – 18 from Cóir Ghaoithe for SCG teachers and Sruth na Maoile for OCG teachers.
