We believe in the power of experiential learning. Studies have proved that we remember 90% of what we do, compared to 10% of what we read. This is even more true with language!
Our courses promote the speaking and enjoyment of the Irish language, and it works too! Through activity based learning, we saw an improvement in the verbal ability of our students of 70 – 80% over a forty minute activity, and all without opening a text book!
