Ùlpan Update

The Ùlpan project is still continuing, with 8 pupils currently working their way through level 3, which is half way through the entire course!

Over the summer we advertised for a summer program of intensive levels, unfortunately we failed to get enough people signed up for it. Despite that we had successful Ùlpan taster sessions at TMF and throughout the summer, and a lot of people have shown great interest in the method. Because of this, we have decided to advertise intensive weekend classes, which would mean competing a level over the course of three intensive weekends (Saturday and Sunday). This is a very intensive method and requires a great deal of commitment, not to mention giving up your entire weekend for three weeks. On the plus side, it would mean you have completed a level and have started your journey to Gaelic fluency.

If you have any questions or wish to sign up then please get in touch with donna@tireetrust.org.uk
