Leaving Cert Irish Oral
LEAVING CERT IRISH ORAL INTENSIVE PROGRAMME : JAN TO APRIL
The smart Leaving Cert student wants an intensive “no nonsense” Irish oral programme focusing on EXACTLY what is needed to get maximum marks. Our Irish oral course does just that! The intensive programme consists of 1.15 hour sessions over 10 weeks ( total 11.5 hours). The Leaving Cert student leaves with everything needed for the perfect Irish oral exam.
STREAMED CLASSES :
The smart student wants a class that is streamed in order to challenge them without feeling intimidated during each session. All Essential French classes are streamed. Weaker classes concentrate on revising basics before moving to more advanced material. The advanced groups focus on perfecting accent, pronunciation and learn those phrases guaranteed to impress on the day.
MAX OF 6 PUPILS PER SESSION :
The smart student looks for small class numbers. We have the best teacher / pupil ratio nationally – 6 students per class. This allows you to actively participate in class and to reach your full potential during each session. The key to successful learning for the oral is small class numbers to give everyone a chance to practice what they know!
EXCLUSIVE PROGRAMME :
The smart student wants exclusivity in course content so that their work stands out from the crowd. Due to the small number of students per session in our programme, our tutors will ensure that your oral material is UNIQUE. We will show you how to build on what has been learnt in school, in order to develop answers that makes you stand out from your school mates – all to impress the examiner. We concentrate on all of the oral themes as well as the topical issues of the moment.
AND WHAT’S MORE…
The smart student will always have questions on the run up to the exam as well as during the course itself. We are available online via Facebook to answer all questions you may have. All students will be given exclusive access to our Essential French Facebook page from until the oral exams – where we will post exclusive content for their eyes only!
AND NOW FOR THE ALL IMPORTANT QUESTION….ARE YOU A SMART STUDENT???
