When you think of St. Patrick’s Day, you probably think of shamrocks, leprechauns, and beer, but what about the man whose name we all shout to one another?
What do you actually know about St. Patrick himself? A whole day is spent celebrating him, but many of us don’t know too many details behind this Irish holiday. Lucky for you, our Irish blogger Róislín knows a thing or two about him, and even more about the Irish language. So, before you get decked out in green, put your corned beef on to cook, or drink your first Guinness™ this St. Patrick’s Day, take a spin through our new Irish lesson “Who Was St. Patrick?” (Link below.) You’ll learn more about the man we celebrate and the holiday itself, while also picking up some Irish vocabulary to impress your friends, family, or even the bartender at your local Irish pub! Not familiar with Irish? Check out the English-Irish version, written in English with fun bits of Irish sprinkled throughout. Avidly learning Irish? You’re ready for the Irish immersion version, taught entirely in Irish! Already have an account through your local library? You can access both of these lessons in the Irish section of Transparent Language Online, under “User-Generated Content”. Interested in using this technology in your own classroom? Want to bring language learning to your customers or employees? Learn more about Transparent Language Online for schools, libraries, corporate organizations, or simply contact us! And of course, Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig! (Happy St. Patrick’s Day!)
