    Is mór an trua nach bhfuil airgead agam. Bheadh an sort ruda sin ródhaor dom go mífhortúnach.

    Those instructors are seriously legit and I like how they divide up the levels to address areas that learners of minoritized languages tend to be weaker in due to not having access to resources or a supportive practice environment. It's very realistic for how adult and self-learners tend to progress with a language which a bit different from the expectations of the Common European system (A1, A2, B1, B2, etc.) that assumes you're in a structured classroom where you have specific learning goals you have to achieve and have access to an environment where you can get conversation/speaking practice regularly.

    Looks like it'd be a great experience for anyone lucky enough to attend.


    If you're in the area already, it might be worth emailing them. I'm not sure if this particular one offers any, but I know the one in Bloomington Indiana offers discounts and such.
