Scrúdú Béal - Irish Oral Junior / Leaving Certificate (GCSE)

Scrúdú Béal - Irish Oral Junior / Leaving Certificate (GCSE)

This is a list of questions I have compiled for both my Junior & Leaving Certificate students for the Oral Exam. As an examiner I have used these questions and it helps focus students learning for their exam. At the beginning is a list of phrases they can use to increase their fluency levels, sound more fluent and natural in their speech, all while thinking of an answer! It is very much geared towards Leaving Cert Ordinary level but I have also asked all to Higher Level students as well! There is over 100 basic questions that cover a wide range of topics.

An Nollag - Display & Activity

An Nollag - Display & Activity

This resource contains all the necessary displays for your Irish classroom this Christmas. I use these as a game first to introduce the vocabulary to my students. They are placed around my room and students are given a list of Christmas vocabulary in English. They then have to find the Irish equivalent. It's nice to watch students discover the vocabulary themselves as opposed to looking at a PowerPoint and writing everything down in a vocabulary book. Once the lesson is finished they can go onto a display board. I've attached the .pdf for easy printing.

This resource contains three resources for a lesson in Irish. The first is a Bingo game, using Christmas vocabulary (See my display resource for that vocabulary) The second is a puzzle where students need to orientate themselves through a puzzle. This can be done using directions. (One person is blind folded and they must direct their partner around the puzzle) Or this resource can be used as a simple starter. The third resource is a word search. Each activity focuses oral skills and new vocabulary. It's a lovely way to finish the term off and also a way to keep students engaged in their final lesson.
