Duolingo for schools- We are going to use this website for Irish as we have the book finished. Each pupil has been assigned a username and password.

Each teacher has set up a class list with usernames & passwords. To access this  a parent must email your class teacher

kcottrell@scoilghobnatan.com  or foneill@scoilghobnatan.com  and we will forward the details to you. There are different levels in this- we will start at the 1st one and work up from there each week.
