Meet our "Giota Beag" panel

Six brave people made up our "Giota Beag" panel and came in once a month during the series to discuss how they were getting on and show off what they had learnt so far.
In their first meeting they introduce themselves and tell us why they wanted to learn Irish. Fearghal Mag Uiginn the "Giota Beag" tutor tells them what's in store.

In their fifth week of the course see if you can tell the difference between the "Giota Beag" contributors and the panel. Hear them take part in a quiz and compare your knowledge to theirs.

At the end of the course our panel came in to discuss their progress they made phone calls to "Giota Beag" contributors speaking only in Irish and in the final quiz hear how much they've improved. You'll be glad to hear that the teacher can make mistakes too!
