First Certificate Exam Results

Congratulations to our evening class students, Sonja, Joanna and Marcin, who recently took their FCE in Dublin City University. They passed with amazing results. We are so proud of you for your hard work and dedication to the course. Well done also to Alfonso who also recently passed the FCE. He has been with us twice on Summer courses and we hope to see you again soon. We will have another evening course for the June FCE exams starting soon and a Fluency Development and FCE preparation programme in Summer. If you have been working towards doing your First Certificate Exam this course would be ideal for you as we give advice and guidance on all five papers and tips to answer each question. A breakdown of the marking scheme is also valuable to achieve the highest results possible. Please note that it is now possible to take your FCE exam in Ireland in August. Check out our brochure for further details.

St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and we celebrate his life on 17 March. This is a national holiday. We have parades in every town and city in Ireland dedicated to his memory. The biggest celebration in Ireland will take place in Dublin but parades also take place in America, with one of the biggest in the world held in New York each year. On 17 March everyone wears shamrock and green clothes. We also paint our faces, drink green beer and eat green ice-cream. Everybody sings and dances and celebrates on the street.

If you miss Ireland – watch this! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGWMC6wOuSY

On Saint Patrick’s Day,

May God grant you always a sunbeam to warm you,

A moonbeam to charm you,

A sheltering angel so nothing can harm you,

Laughter to cheer you,

Faithful friends near you,

And whenever you pray,

Heaven to hear you.

Lá Fhéile Phádraig shona daoibh go léir!

Wishing you peace and happiness from all at the SLC on St. Paddy’s Day.

Sinead
