Irish-Language Taster Course for Complete Beginners

08 April 2022
Derry City and Strabane District Council is running a one-hour Irish-Language Taster Course via Zoom at 7pm, Monday 25 April, as part of the Lifelong Learning Festival that will run from 25 – 29 April. This festival seeks to raise awareness of Derry and Strabane as a learning city.
This free course is aimed at adults of all ages living in the Council area who have very little or no Irish. If you've never had the chance to learn Irish before, this is your opportunity to come along, learn a few words and phrases, and find out more about what it is all about!
This basic introduction will provide attendees with more confidence regarding the Irish language, whether this encourages further study, or simply provides greater knowledge and skills for whenever you encounter the language in future life. It will also share information about local opportunities and organisations with whom attendees can pursue language learning after the event. Please register for the event at
Derry and Strabane joined the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities in 2019 aiming to use learning to tackle inequalities, remove barriers to learning, and make learning more accessible and enjoyable to everyone.
This year’s festival will include performances, taster sessions, tours, displays, lectures, walks, demonstrations, workshops, and more, with an element of learning attached to every event. More details can be found at:
