Our teaching system divides the language into logical topics, 56 elementary, 58 intermediate, each with 10 or 20 pictures together with the spoken and written language. Choose your topics based on the age and ability of your classes. The intermediate topics are often expanded versions of the elementary topics.
It is important that you start by teaching the lesson for your selected topic. The lesson introduces the language and the associated picture through an introduction and 3 simple, clear activities ("3 stage questioning") that gradually reinforces the target Irish. Your pupils should be repeating the Irish as much as possible as you work through the lesson.
Once your pupils are familiar with the topic pictures and have been introduced to the language, go for the games! This is where the magic of our system really shines through - the games make your pupils want to know their Irish, and to know it well enough to compete at high speed. Encourage your pupils to use a variety of games as they are designed to concentrate on different aspects of learning the topic language.
