‘Cuireadh Chun Cainte’ is a practical guide from Comhdháil Náisiúnta na Gaeilge and Comhar na Múinteoirí Gaeilge, for those who will be undertaking the new Irish Oral for their Leaving Certificate from 2012 on.
The new syllabus for the 2012 Leaving Certificate presents many challenges, the oral exam is a common exam for both Higher Level and Ordinary Level students, and it will be challenging for teachers to cater for students at all levels. From 2012, 40% of the marks for the Irish exam will be awarded for the Irish Oral, an exam which takes place over a fifteen minute period.
The new Irish Oral exam has four distinct parts, Reception, Poetry Reading, Description of a Series of Pictures, and Conversation. This DVD gives students the tools to successfully undertake each of the four parts of the exam at either Higher or Ordinary Level.
The programme gives students and teachers alike, an idea of what to expect in the Irish Oral exam. Students will be more comfortable preparing for the Oral, once they understand the structure of the exam. The programme is suitable for students at both Higher and Ordinary Level, as practical advice is given on to how to avoid common pitfalls, and how to undertake effective communication with the examiner. Parts of the DVD are specifically aimed at students with a good proficiency in Irish to help them add to their fluency, their vocabulary and their communication skills.
Handbooks and flashcards are available as an extra feature on the DVD, as an aid for both teachers and pupils. The presenter, Marcus Lamb, can be heard reading each of the poems on the syllabus so that pupils can practice along with him.
The package is suitable for students and teachers in Gaeltacht schools, in Gaelscholáistí, and in schools who teach through the medium of English.
One copy of Cuireadh Chun Cainte was sent to each school in the country the week beginning 3rd October 2011.
