courses are based on a critical evaluation of the theories of a
functional/notional syllabus and the communicative approach to language
teaching and learning. While theories of transformational generative
grammar are not ignored choice of exponants for the realisation of
functions and notions takes account of the valuable work done on the
structures and vocabulary of the Irish language. A sounds course, based
on a phonemic analysis of the language forms an important part of all
our courses. Aspects of the history and literature of the language are
included in courses as appropriate.
