September:   5 – 9ú Méan Fómhair  (B1 – Meánleibhéal)

Which level would suit you best?  Here is a simple guide to our courses.

A1 are our Absolute Beginners.  They may have learned a phrase or two like ‘A Uachtaráin agus a chairde’   😉

A2 or Beginners 2.  This learner will have a basis knowledge from school and will be able to use simple phrases and construct simple sentences e.g. “Eilís is ainm dom.”  “Gabh mo leithscéal.”  “Tabhair dom an cáca milis.”.

B1 nó Méanleibhéal:  This learner will be able to participate in conversations on general topics and follow the gist of television programmes, radio etc.  understanding native speakers may be a struggle.  “An féidir leat labhairt níos moille, más é do thoil é.”  “Tá sibh an-chairdiúil in Inis Oírr”  “Tá fir bhreá ar an oileán seo agus na mná is deise in Éirinn”

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns. agus



  1. “Tá fir bhreá ar an oileán seo…” Go deimhin! 😉

    Good clarification of levels.
