Nuachúrsa Gaeilge na mBráithre Críostaí (arna leasú)


A new course in Irish by the Christian Brothers (revised)

Each point of grammar is clearly explained and each lesson is followed by a series of simple exercises. These have been converted into interactive online quizzes which are instantly marked at the press of a button. Incorrect answers can be revised again and again until all are correct and earn a top grade of 100%. Students can then submit the completed exercise to be part of their overall record of achievement.

Students experience satisfaction and pride at being able to achieve high marks and become highly motivated to continue. As a result they gain a very thorough grasp of Irish grammar.
