basic information

Title of the Project
Abair leat
Brief description
Abairleat is intended to be a supplementary activity that compliments existing coursework. It is not a language course per se. The whole focus of Abairleat is on spoken Irish as used in ordinary speech by native speakers in the Connemara Gaeltacht, with the objective of helping learners to become more fluent, proficient and comfortable.
AbairLeat is primarily a tool for independent learning, with learners using their home computers to make their own recordings, complete self-correcting questions and undergo themed interviews anticipating the correct answers to preset questions.
Target Language
Adult Education

Message: Since Irish is the official language of Ireland (as is English)… and so important for the cultural identity of Irish people…any project to promote it, has my hundred per cent support!

Message: Learning a foreign language may be an activity to be carried out during the free time. And modern technologies allow this distance learning approach. The \"Abair Leat\" project is really useful because it links a modern approach with an historiacal language.
