IU Adds Elementary Irish I and II to its Foreign Language Offerings

The Irish language course at Immaculata will be a full semester component of the University´s language program beginning in September 2005. Part I of Elementary Irish will be offered in the fall semester and Part II in spring 2006, each will be three credits. The six credits in Irish will fulfill the University´s core requirement in a foreign language. The course may also be taken for enrichment (no credit). Elementary Irish is scheduled for Monday evenings, beginning August 29, at 7:15 p.m., and the advance registration suggests that a second section may be necessary.
Colette de Carun, a native Irish speaker, is the instructor in Irish. Her credentials include an honors degree from University College Dublin and a higher diploma in education from Trinity College. She taught Irish, music, and history at several secondary schools in Ireland prior to her moving to the United States. At Immaculata, she has taught the short course in Irish language as well as traditional dancing.
Individuals interested in registering, either for credit or enrichment, should contact the College of LifeLong Learning at 610-647-4400, ext. 3236 for information about schedules and fees
Immaculata University, a Catholic coeducational institution is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
