Irish Language Class

 First Steps in Spoken Irish

Thursday Evenings

7:00 - 8:30 PM

Free

Instructor: Jim Dunn

Spoken mainly in the West of Ireland, Irish is a Gaelic language closely related to Scots Gael, Welsh, and Breton. With a goal of conversational skills, our meetings will explore the cultural and historical context of Irish through film, song and discussion. The course will be fun and easy, and you will be able to converse in Irish by its end.

Jim is an escaped academic, with PhD specialties in Old Irish and Modern Irish Literature. He has broad experience in teaching languages and literature at the college level and is published in the field. He is an Irish citizen, visits the Gaeltacht yearly, and speaks Irish.

The text is Buntus Cainte, with CD. Class size is limited to 4-8 participants. To register for this free course, contact the Wendell Free Library, 978-544-7090, or email Jim,
