These courses are also appropriate for personal development. An Cùrsa Bogaidh II & III combine conversation and active based learning with reading, writing, and grammar lessons. During the four weeks, students have the opportunity to take part in cultural activities such as visiting, song, dance, music, storytelling and other traditional customs.
