Here at Yeats College, we get the balance right. We will help you to balance your studies in the morning and balance on the surfboard in the afternoon!
Our mission here at Yeats College is to cultivate and celebrate a love for the Irish language in an environment that is both conducive to learning, and creatively enjoyable. Yeats College is unique in the provision of targeted, curriculum based classes delivered by dedicated and enthusiastic teachers.
Curriculum based classes
This course has a strong examination emphasis. The targeted nature of the course leads to an in-depth analysis of key exam topics which are extremely beneficial to Junior and Leaving Certificate students. The course focus centres on areas such as exam technique, oral exam preparation, essay writing, reading and aural comprehension, prose, poetry and grammar. This course has supported the success of countless students. Our unique approach to teaching and learning ensures students get a valuable understanding of the Junior or Leaving Certificate course curriculum while also engaging with new people. This experience allows the student to interact solely through our national language. Learning a language in this way will nurture a positive and productive relationship with Irish for years to come.
Afternoon Activities (Pre-Junior Certificate only) – as Gaeilge
In order to maximise learning and enjoyment potential, we have divided the timetable to allow for classroom based learning in the morning and recreational activities, through Irish, in the afternoon.We have almost twenty years of experience in preparing second level students for their examinations, and during this time we have been able to identify the variety of career aspirations, hobbies and activities of our students. This knowledge has helped us to develop a programme of unique and exciting activities which are guaranteed to have something for everyone in the audience!
