We have collected a playlist of videos, mostly short, to help inform families on the features and benefits of the immersion education approach that helps produce well educated, successful bilinguals.
Irish medium education follows the internationally successful immersion model and offers pre-school (naíonra), primary / national school (Gaelscoil) and seconday school (Gaelcholáiste) levels. Over recent years research both here and around the world has highlighted the many benefits for pupils who have the chance to spend their school years in such immersion systems, in addition to the well known above average grades performance.
The linked playlist on Youtube features a selection of videos from experts, teachers and parents offering insights and knowledge from Ireland and internationally.
Some of the nations covered include:
- Catalunya (Catalan) – Spain
- Cymru (Welsh) – UK
- Euskadi (Basque) – Spain
- Lakota (Sioux) – USA
- Maori – New Zealand
