4 courses will be organised with 100 students attending each one. There is a huge demand on places but acting experience isn’t a necessity, a reasonable level of Irish is though. Students will attend workshops each day which will be run through Irish. The students will live in the heart of Connemara, therefore they will be immersed in the Irish language. The Irish oral exam accounts for 40% of their marks. This course will give students the chance to prepare for this exam in a fun and exciting way.
2017 Course Dates:
3-14 July 2017 in the Connemara Gaeltacht!
During the workshops an emphasis will be placed on composition and writing. The students will be advised and guided through the process by experts in these fields. A play will be produced by the students which will be staged at the end of the two week course, this will add to the students confidence. An invitation will be sent out to producers for TG4, local media, parents and friends.
