Telling stories is an important part of any language – it could be talking about your weekend, reminiscing about schooldays, telling a joke or breaking down what happened in the latest episode of a TV show. Stories are also a great opportunity for us to develop both our receptive and productive language skills.

In our online course Siúlach Scéalach (launching Friday 9th September 2022), Bitesize Irish members practise listening to stories and accounts of journeys, something that will help fine-tune your comprehension skills and give you more confidence when engaging with Irish language culture. You will also improve your ability to tell stories with practical tips on how to connect ideas, letting you create longer sentences that will add nuance to your speaking and writing.
