Pleanáil Teanga Chonamara Láir are pleased to announce a new pilot scheme called Gaelchara.
The aim of the scheme is to give Irish-language learners living in the Conamara Láir area (Camus, Ros Muc, Cill Chiaráin, Carna, An Caiseal & Sraith Salach) an opportunity to practice Irish as a living, every-day, community language. The basic idea is that the learner improves his or her spoken Irish by participating in a day-to-day activity or pastime with a native speaker (the Gaelchara) in a Gaeltacht setting. The learner will team-up with a native speaker and both of them will participate in a social, cultural or sporting activity, be that a craft, a pastime, a sport or other activity or pastime. Irish will be the language spoken and practiced during this time. €250 will be made available to the learner and €250 will be made available to the native speaker. The closing date is 31st of July 2020. For further information, contact Briocán Bairéad, Oifigeach Pleanála Teanga Chonamara Láir (Language Planning Officer for the Conamara Láir area) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 087 1678607.
