Yeats College: Courses

 

Courses

The mission at Yeats College is to celebrate and cultivate a love of the Irish and French languages while thoroughly preparing students for their Junior and Leaving Certificate examinations.

We are unique in the provision of Junior and Leaving Certificate curriculum based classes delivered by qualified and exceptional second level Irish and French language teachers. Our teachers have many years experience in preparing students for their examinations and have a proven track record in academic success.

Our courses have a strong examination emphasis, focusing on key exam topics which are extremely beneficial to Junior and Leaving Certificate candidates.

Students of the course will enjoy studying their course curriculum in a motivated environment and are provided with sample answers and reference notes which will be invaluable to them throughout the school year.

There are three courses, PRE-JUNIOR CERTIFICATE for 5th / 6th Class Primary, PRE-JUNIOR CERTIFICATE and PRE-LEAVING CERTIFICATE. The courses run for two weeks Monday through to Friday. Pre-Junior Certificate for 5th / 6th Class Primary runs from 9am to 3pm and Pre Junior and Pre Leaving Certificate from 9am - 4pm.

 

"The course was amazing. I had a great time and my Irish has really improved. The reference notes were a great help throughout the year and most importantly when I was preparing for my exams"
