Beginner Irish Gaelic Class 2018
How deeply do you want to connect with the spirit of Ireland?
Whether you want to deepen your connection to your Irish heritage, or you want to explore the literature of one of the oldest writing cultures in Europe, learning the Irish language is an irreplaceable step. If you want to see the world as your Irish forebears did, you’ll need the same linguistic lense they saw the world through. Irish is one of Europe’s oldest written languages and possesses a celebrated body of literature. Whether you’ve always wanted to learn this fascinating minority language or you haven’t considered it until now, now’s your chance to begin your journey with Irish Gaelic.
The Knoxville Irish Society - a nonprofit promoting Irish culture, uniting the local Irish diaspora, and engaging in the Irish tradition of charity - is organizing a new beginner Irish course for 2018. The program is free and informal, and access to the PDF textbook and audio is provided free of charge. We’ll meet once a week every Sunday from 1:00 to 3:00 in the classroom at 3131 Morris Ave (the City of Knoxville’s operations center) beginning February 4. You’ll also be expected to meet with a study group once per week outside of regular class. These groups will be organized on the first day. One Sunday per month, we’ll meet at another location (TBA) for a language lab.
