The courses will be taught by post primary and primary teachers from Coláiste Mhuigheo who have a deep understanding and knowledge relating to both the junior and leaving cert cycle.

Cost – €200 in total (€100 deposit already paid)


The daily schedule will consist of four half hour classes followed by one hour of online independent tasks, assigned and assessed by the class teacher. One hour of interactive games and oral language tasks will also be assigned. This will provide the teacher and student time to actively participate in the learning process and allow for assessment and feedback to each student.


Lessons will be thematic in nature with an emphasis on oral language, conversational skills along with teaching various topics for both the junior and leaving certificate. Each lesson will be recorded, allowing students to return to the lesson at a later date for active revision. Classes will consist of no more than 12 students per class. The college will group students based on their class level according to this school year. We will try to group friends together as much as possible, depending on class level.
