What is an immersion weekend? As our friend Neasa put it:
An immersion weekend (or week(s)) is where people gather to learn the Irish language and speak it and participate in cultural activities (often involving the language). So we immerse ourselves in the Irish language and by the end of the weekend we’ve forgotten how to speak English 😉
I find the hardest thing is leaving and having to go back into the English speaking world! It’s a wonderful experience to go to a weekend of Irish, I highly recommend it

We’ve also had previous conversations at Bitesize about this, see Let’s collect all immersion weekends.
