Will was out, so we joined Mary’s class for the
evening. Mary was also out at another class for the first 45-50 minutes. This was prearranged, and
JS and I had been asked to run the class in her absence. I was a little scared of this, but it actually was
OK.


We started with a drill based on chapter 44 of Buntus
Cainte
. We practised the past tense forms, independent and dependent, of the teigh “go”, including
indirect speech, e.g.:

  • Chuaigh sé go dtí an siopa.
  • An ndeachaigh sé go dtí an siopa?
  • Ní dheachaigh sé go dtí an siopa.
  • Nach ndeachaigh sé go dtí an siopa?
  • Deir sé go ndeachaigh sé go dtí an siopa.
  • Deir sé nach ndeachaigh sé go dtí an siopa.

We read Perfecting
His Irish on the Job
, and per Mary’s request, we copy-edited the Irish in the article. There were
several mistakes, e.g. the first greeting should be Cé hé Cén chaoi a bhfuil tú?”

After Mary came back we did some more work with teigh and some
weather conversation.
