Instructor Kevin Jewell

This workshop will provide students with an introductory understanding of the Irish language, with basic vocabulary, grammar, and syntax, but with an emphasis on the everyday spoken language, rather than intensive study of grammar. The workshop will also cover subjects such as culture and the historical background of the language, including how it has influenced English and been influenced in turn by other languages. Asynchronous learning opportunities will be provided through PowerPoint presentations, videos, and handouts which participants may review when convenient to them.

Workshops are taught online through Zoom and Canvas. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device. A device to capture images (digital camera, smart phone, or tablet, etc.) is helpful, but not required.
