Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners are encouraged to bring fidgets, doodling supplies, or other knick-knacks to fiddle with while we listen to the songs.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please Check Sources! I would like to show a video that contains shots of adults sipping beers in a pub. The setting and atmosphere add a lot to the performance, as it occurred shortly before Ireland shut down for the COVID-19 Pandemic. If the video presents a problem, I can remove it from the curriculum.
