At the launch of the Scholastic Languages Programme for 2012, Marian Harkin M.E.P. welcomed this opportunity for regional students. She spoke of the importance of fluency in a European language.
“Most Europeans have at least two languages with many speaking a third. Now that Irish will be a working language of the E. U. since 2007, more and more people are learning Irish. I’m delighted to report that there are a number of successful Irish classes being run in Brussels right now.” She added that she felt such initiatives are a practical and positive step forward in the promotion and development of the Irish language.
Following eight years of success Scholastic Languages, a Carrick-on-Shannon and Sligo based initiative, is running two language camps this July in Carrick-on-Shannon and Sligo. It is offering the summer schools through a choice of either Irish or French for primary school and secondary school students in Sligo and Irish in Carrick-on-Shannon.
Primary school students actively participate in language classes in the morning and enjoy a wide range of fun activities through the chosen language in the afternoon. Scholastic Languages offer a new range of fun educational opportunities to regional students and to provide the confidence to communicate with greater fluency.
