This course is specifically designed for students who wish to pass the TEG B1 oral exam. This course will focus on all 3 sections of the oral; general conversation, role-play & picture sequence.
This course does not cover the written paper should applicants also be undertaking the full TEG B1 exam. Applicants who satisfy the Leaving Certificate required grade must only sit the TEG B1 Oral.
We recommend sitting our 4 Week Preparation course for TEG B1. However, this may not suit all schedules so we have created this one day intensive course.
Students will undertake four 1 hour intensive live revision classes. Each class is based on a separate section. Within each class there will be approximately 45 minutes - 1 hour of tuition the rest of the time will be spent using Irish naturally and in discussion with the teachers present.
While a class recording is available to those unable to attend live we place a large importance on gaining the opportunity to speak Irish naturally and thus highly recommend you attend each class and participate fully in the activities. Students will also get an individual mock oral with oral and feedback.
A full grammar booklet along with in-depth notes for each section of the TEG B1 Oral will be delivered to each candidates door. These notes contain a huge amount of sample exam questions & role-plays, sample answers and techniques needed for the exam.
Students who enroll will also receive access to our dedicated Whatsapp for TEG B1 applicants. Here you can ask for translation help, grammar questions or anything related to Irish and the exam. This group is monitored by a qualified Irish teacher so you can be sure everything is answered correctly.

Cannot recommend Gaeilgeoir Guides enough. I had done another TEG course from a different company and I honestly learnt more in one night on this course than all three with them. I love the idea of having a teacher in every breakout room to help you when doing activities. The notes were super in-depth and having them delivered to the house is a real advantage. Highly recommend!
