Immersion Course in The Irish Language
Monday Morning, August 27th through Saturday Noon, September 1st, 2012
Marist Brothers Retreat Center
Route 9W, Esopus, NY
Gaeltacht Immersion Programs were established to provide a setting where students could absorb the Irish Language and culture while enjoying the companionship of others with similar interests and abilities.
The only requirements are a desire to learn, a commitment to use whatever Irish you do have, and a willingness to comply with the rule: Irish will be spoken by all, at all times, to the best of one's ability.
Once again there will be a naíonra (pre-school) day program. Children's classes can be arranged for young children accompanying parents.
Daily Language Classes and Peer-Led Conversation Groups (both mandatory) along with Workshops in Music, Singing and Céilí/Set Dancing are offered as well as other workshops throughout the week.
Evening activities are scheduled and there is still time for swimming, hiking or relaxing.
The deadline to reserve and pay for a spot is August 18th.
