ADULTS WITH an interest in learning Irish can take part in evening classes that will run in Carlow in February.

Following the unprecedented success of Gaelchultúr adult Irish evening classes in Carlow over the last four years, Glór Cheatharlach is delighted to announce that a new series of classes will commence in Carlow this February.

The courses were first launched in September 2008 and have been hugely successful with many participants returning again and again to take part in the courses. A special reduced price of €180 is also on offer for Carlow learners who sign up now.

Courses will commence the week of February 4 with all classes being held in Carlow County Council offices on the Athy Road. Three levels will be on offer this term- beginners and a lower and upper intermediate class. The emphasis is on getting the participants speaking the language and there is a level to suit everybody, whatever their current ability from those who have never spoken a word of Irish to those wishing to improve on their 'Cúpla Focal' to those who want to improve their fluency.

Beginners 'Bunrang 1' will be held on Monday evenings with both the Lower Intermediate 'Meánrang 1' and Upper Intermediate 'Meánrang 2' being held on Tuesday evenings. All classes run from 7-9pm for duration of 10 weeks.

'We are delighted that Gaelchultúr classes are returning to Carlow once again this year. Last year's participants really enjoyed the learning experience and we hope to see lots of new faces as well as some familiar ones from last year returning,' said Emma Whitmore, Oifigeach Gaeilge with Glór Cheatharlach. 'It shows once again what a strong affinity people in Carlow have for the Irish language with so many people wanting to learn or improve their skills in the language. The Gaelchultúr courses are the ideal opportunity for those interested in learning Irish and the course itself is fantastic. Participants really enjoy the learning experience.'

Those unsure which course to choose can do a quick self assessment on the Gaelchultúr website which will recommend which level suits them best.

The cost of the 10-week course is €180 and registration is now open online or by calling 1890 252 900.
