|Sa tsúil nach gcuirfimis le scaipeadh an víreas COVID19, tá na ranganna fisiciúla curtha ar ceal faoi láthair.|
|To avoid adding to the spread of the COVID19 virus, all physical classes are cancelled at the moment.|
In normal times we run classes every Tuesday night during the Victorian school term (except public holidays), starting at 7:30 pm.
In 2020 we moved classes online and this will continue for Term 1 of 2021. There will be a Beginners class, an Advanced Beginners class and an Intermediate/Advanced class. When we do return to physical classes we will try to keep an online class (primarily for people outside Melbourne).
You are welcome to try a class first, but all students are expected to become members of the Cumann ($45 per year). In addition, we offer our teachers an honorarium for their hard work and to help finance that we will be charging students $40 per term. This is roughly equivalent to the money collected at physical classes.
Beginners classes are using the textbook Gaeilge gan Stró (Stress-free Irish) at the moment. We order these in batches and sell them at cost price ($60 + $12.20 postage).
Although you can join a Zoom meeting using only a web browser, it is recommended that you get the Zoom app (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS). If you can manage it, headphones with a microphone will make it much easier to hear and be heard. Classes starts at the same time (7:30 pm), but run for about an hour and a quarter.
