SaySomethingin Gaeilge

In the week that the Wales XV travelled to the Aviva Stadium for their third match of the Six Nations Championship, a SaySomethingin team of Aran and Nick were also in Dublin to share SSi technology and methodology with key Irish language bodies.

Thanks to help from the Welsh Government’s Agile Cymru initiative, SSi has been able to build relationships with the Irish Government, the Irish equivalent(s) of our National Centre, Conradh na Gaeilge, Foras na Gaeilge, and the AI-driven digital language experts at ADAPT, who are based at Dublin City University.

There is a strong desire to use proven methods to increase the use of spoken Irish. The reaction to our presentations where Welsh was taught using SSi methodology was just brilliant.

Whilst it is still early days, SSi is confident in delivering an Irish course for English speakers with the help of these partners by the end of the year.

So, unlike the Welsh XV, the two SSi’ers came back buzzing with positivity.
