Rang Mháire (Mary's Class)


Last Time (November 7 - December 12){Back to Top}(back to top)

Mary has had to miss a couple of classes, but the more experienced students have stepped in and worked Buntús Cainte with the newer students.

We've been very impressed by the work the class has done over the last several weeks!

Previous Week (October 24){Back to Top}(back to top)


We learned each others names and practiced introductions:

Seo é ________ (for a male)
Seo í ________ (for a female)


We reviewed lenition and eclipsis and practiced doing the appropriate operation after a given possessive adjective:

his house: a theach (lenition)
her house: a teach (no mutation)
their house: a dteach (eclipsis)

I put up the paradigms for the present tense and past tense of bí (review for the returning students, half-new for the new students) and we practiced the forms for a bit. Here's the past tense:

Bhí sé tirim. It was dry.
Ní raibh sé tirim. It was not dry.
An raibh sé tirim? Was it dry?
Nach raibh sé tirim? Wasn't it dry?
B'fhéidir go raibh sé tirim. Perhaps it was dry.
B'fhéidir nach raibh sé tirim. Perhaps it wasn't dry.
