A new curriculum in Ireland that has been launched in response to a lack of teaching in the Irish language will teach more children in Irish and will include the use of language as a tool for communication.
The curriculum, which is being launched by the Department of Education, aims to “deliver a holistic approach to teaching language that will help children achieve their language and culture goals”, the Department said in a statement.
“The curriculum will focus on the importance of language for all children and will enable teachers to incorporate it into their learning process.”
This will help them to better communicate and understand children’s needs, their aspirations and their aspirations for their lives.
“The new language will be introduced by the Irish Government in 2018.
A new curriculum that will introduce Irish as a language for learning is part of a plan to tackle the “national failure” of teaching children in English to understand other languages.
The National Language Strategy, published last year, said Ireland was “mired in a national failure to deliver a comprehensive and effective national curriculum that provides the necessary framework for learning Irish”.
The Department of State has also announced a €2m funding boost for the National Language and Culture Strategy to “continue to improve language skills in primary schools and local authorities, and to support the development of new curricula that support Irish language teaching and learning”.
It also announced that the Department is to provide €100,000 to Irish Language Centre for the promotion of Irish in schools.
