We have a guest teacher on January 26!

Mo Chairde,

On January 26, Wayne from the Cedar Rapids Irish language group is going to teach our class!

This is a real treat for us because Wayne has a lot of experience teaching the language. Please plan to attend the class and be prepared to ask all these questions we have about sentence structure, pronunciation, resources and so on.

He will also bring with him a small collection of books from Ireland. You may purchase a book and take it home that night if you see something you like.
