For the first time I was placed in the highest of the three levels. It was hard, but I don’t
think I did noticeably worse than my classmates. The emphasis was on conversation, which is the
weakest of my skills in the Irish language. In fact, I am not much of a conversationalist in English.

The first session was a set of get-acquainted questions. We went around and asked them to each other, to find out who had
done this or that. There was a question of who frequently went to the theater, and what play they had most recent seen. I commented:
Tá agam déagóir sa bhaile. Breathnaím dráma gach lá.
