Irish Language Hunt Comes to Corbett Middle School

Corbett Middle School Irish Language Hunting

There are about 50 Corbett Middle School students hunting Irish in this picture, believe or not!

As of April 2nd, we’ve just begun a 9 week program in partnership with Corbett Middle School in Corbett, OR, where 100 Corbett Middle School students will language hunt Irish for an hour a day, 4 days a week.

We’re really excited about this project. Our goal is to bring the students to basic conversational fluency in Irish by the end of the program, along with training them to apply their new language hunting skills to any language. This pilot program could lead to bigger things in the Fall!

We’re including a music element, teaching the students traditional Irish music along with the Gaeilge language.

There are many more images at our Facebook group.

We’re currently fundraising for this program; if you’d like to support this ground-breaking effort, contact us at info@languagehunters.org.
