Methodology for Buntús Cainte The lessons are each intended to be a day's work though we only have one hour per lesson. Because of this, during the week you should
- Listen to the first part of the recording, dealing with new material, two or three times.
- On the second and subsequent times, repeat the Irish words aloud while reading the English equivalents.
- You should then be able to understand the six basic sentences when heard for the first time.
- After listening to and repeating aloud the basic sentences you should be able to reproduce them using only the stimulus provided by the illustrations.
- The review sentences are then treated in a similar manner.
- The same approach is then taken with the second section of new material, and after that the situational conversation.
- Once you can reproduce the Irish version of the conversation while glancing only at the English version for assistance you have mastered the lesson.
Each lesson's work begins with an attempt to reproduce the previous week's situational conversation in the same way. If needed, the recording can be played once or twice to aid recollection.
Each lesson will use the SAME ZOOM LINK! Check your Emails!!!!
