Comhar na Muinteoirí Gaeilge will host its Annual General Meeting this Saturday 20th November in The Alexander Hotel, Fenian St, Dublin 2. Dr. Muiris Ó Laoire will give a presentation on the practical ways of developing/promoting spoken Irish in the classroom by giving a detailed account of the various strategies in practicing spoken Irish in the classroom and measuring student’s ability.

Secondary school teachers will get suggestions on preparing students for the new oral curriculum for the 2012 Leaving Cert which will count for 40% for Irish in the Leaving Cert.
