One of the most worthwhile experiences I have as a teacher is helping students to develop insight in learning how to help themselves. At the last stage in the exam year, often the initial assessment is the most valuable...

students involved. Usually students prefer to go through the course and focus on exam questions and particular areas they find difficult. In Irish if the grind is to prepare for the oral examination then no english is spoken (if possible) to prepare the students for the setting of the oral exam. Organisation is very important for grinds and I try to plan with the students a couple of weeks in advance so that the student...

I believe that once the student understands the principle behind a problem they will be able to solve it easily. This will involve explanation of concepts and lots of practise questions. For Irish, I will be focused on the fluency in the language, rather than the learning by rote, which has to be done at home. I believe that the greater fluency the student has in the language, the easier the exams will be for...

Bachelors: Humanites (1985)
endings are second nature and noun genders,cases and declensions are recognized and understood. Oral work is crucial as the journey from thought to word is usually the most difficult part of language learning and is essential for successful exam performance. The oral topics are broken down and dealt with individually with emphasis on spontaneity and effective communication. Aural practice using native media sources and past papers also an integral part of my approach to attune...

subject and their current situation is not allowing for that. When I teach Irish I encourage as much speaking as possible for all ages as I believe that speaking the language can improve the language competency hugely. Grinds are to develop confidence in a particular subject, asking questions, deepening knowledge and understanding to facilitate and guide learning. As for primary school students, I think it is important to keep a positive attitude towards a particular...
