OIDE – Teanglann na Gaeilge http://lurgan.biz/oide-2014/
Learning to speak Gaeilge with confidence is a matter of practice — nothing else. OIDE is an online language lab that aims to get learners immersed in the sounds and rhythms of everyday conversational Gaeilge.
“Sé Seachtainí” will follow the progress of 6 learners as they engage with a series of lessons from OIDE under the guidance of a teacher.
Beginning on 3rd March, we will be uploading 4 weekly videos as new learning materials are being introduced to the class. Class members then undertake the follow on tasks & exercises on their PCs / tablets / smartphones during the course of the week.
While OIDE strongly supports independent learning it also relies heavily on teachers to introduce, explain and give direction. More importantly, teachers can quickly assess and leave audio feedback on their students recorded work. Receiving quality feedback has a powerful influence on achievement as it gives precise information to learners on their efforts to reach their goals.
