Rang Mháire (Mary's Class)


Last Time (December 10) {Back to Top}(back to top)


Cén lá é an lá inniu? What day is today?


We went over the second handout/worksheet on “orduimhreacha,” specifically the page about dates, and checked all our answers.

One more return to “Ceisteanna” (Bileog 6.4C). Last week I asked you to get and give answers again, then write up those answers, mar shampla:

Éiríonn Ruairí go moch ar maidin. -OR- Ní éiríonn Ruairí go moch ar maidin.

This time I asked you to rewrite your answers in indirect speech format (using subordinate clauses):

Remember that for eclipsable consonants it will look more like this:

Everyone did a great job. Bainigí sult as an saoire!

Obair bhaile:

Nothin’ -- see you at the dinner and enjoy your breakg

Previous Class (December 3) {Back to Top}(back to top)


Bean bhán bhinn ag baint bainne bó bleachtáin


At the very end of class last time I threw a handout/worksheet at you on the topic of orduimhreacha, ordinal numbers. We went through the info this time and reviewed the answers.

One way in which ordinals are often used is in talking about dates, and I gave you a follow-up page on that, listing all the "of (month)" forms. So, to give that day's date, we could say: Inniu an Luan, an tríú lá de mhí na Nollag, 2018 ("dhá mhíle 'is a hocht déag").

Then I made you go back to Bileog 6.4 (C) “Ceisteanna” and had you do pairwork with a different person. I asked you to jot down the answers you got and write them up as sentences. For instance, if you worked with Ruairí and this was how the first question played out:

Q: An éiríonn tú go luath ar maidin, a Ruairí?
A: Éirím. would write out: Éiríonn sé go luath ar maidin.
(Or, if the answer was "Ní éirím," you would write out: Ní éiríonn sé go luath ar maidin.)

If you ran out of time to do all of the questions, write up what you got. If your partner is in class next week and you have a little time, see if you can finish the questions.
