IRI 0110 Introduction to the Irish Language I3 Credits

This course, the first in a two-course sequence, offers students an introductory level study of the Irish Gaelic language. Irish is the oldest surviving Celtic language, dating to the Roman Empire, and it opens a window to the Gaelic Order prior to 1690, a span of over 15 centuries. This course sequence teaches students the basics of grammar, syntax, speaking and writing in Irish, as well as some of the historical and cultural contexts within which the Irish language developed and to which it is deeply tied. The class may be attended online-only as well. This course does not count for core credit in Modern and Classical Languages.
