Course Introduction: Language and Culture Experience

Ireland is a vibrant centre of culture in the English language, coloured by the unique heritage and history of Ireland.

It will be a mix of classroom work and excursions to see the sights. It will provide an exposure to the language in context, tricks and tips to analyse, understand and remember, along with developing an appreciation of the context in which it is used.
