Working to implement the policy of the Department of Education and Skills in Ireland of diversifying, enhancing and expanding the teaching of foreign languages in post-primary schools.

Russian is currently being piloted in 25 schools as a TY module. We recently evaluated this module and looked at whether or not there would be possible uptake in Senior Cycle if it was offered as a subject on the curriculum for Irish students. The preliminary findings of the evaluation would suggest not in the context of an already crowded curriculum and the traditional dominance of French but the preliminary evaluation can be found here. Very many thanks for your participation.

Russian for School Year 2010/11

In the current academic year we are able to offer Russian in 23 schools for TY to 725 students.
