Meánrang - Intermediate Level Class
Registration for the intermediate level class has been opened for anyone wishing to attend. Please keep in mind that this is for people who have graduated our beginner's level course or have similar experience. This will start on February 23, 2020 at 12:30pm to 2:30pm. You will need to be a member of KIS. Please select you wish to receive news about the Irish Gaelic class to receive any upcoming news about the class.
Due to the higher intensity of language study at meánleibhéal (intermediate) compared to bunleibhéal (beginner), the meánrang will occur over two years. Year 1 will run from February 2020 to December 2020 and Year 2 will run from February 2021 to December 2021.
The first semester's tuition will be $85 for the cost of tuition and the book. Subsequent semesters will have a $30 tuition fee.

Bunrang - Beginner's Level Class
The Knoxville Irish Society (Cumann Gaelach Knoxville) - a local nonprofit promoting Irish culture and uniting the local Irish diaspora - is organizing a new beginner Irish language course for 2020-2021. We’ll meet once a week every Monday from 6:00PM to 8:00PM online beginning August 17, 2020. Tuition is $20 per semester, and there will be two semesters for Level 1 (the last day of class will be in May 2021). The first semester will also include a $55 fee for the textbook, which will be yours to keep.
So, the fee for the first semester will be $75, but the second semester will be a total of just $20. All students must be members of the Knoxville Irish Society, which is free of charge. If you’re not already a member, please go to knoxvilleirish.com/join and fill out the form (this form is in addition to the class registration one below).
