T G Lurgan – Africa
Language – Gailege (Irish Gaelic)
T G Lurgan has a summer camp where Irish kids can go and work together to learn and sing popular songs in Irish Gaelic. I used one of his songs before in 2015, Get Lucky by Daft Punk, and as today is St. Patrick’s Day (yay!) I thought it would be an appropriate time to post this. The kids in the videos always look like they are having the greatest time, and I would guess it is a much more exciting way to learn a language than sitting in a classroom at school with a textbook. The importance of a new generation learning a language is vital for its continuation, so well done everyone involved in this!
I chose ‘Africa’ as…well, it’s a classic! And to all my lovely Irish family and friends, Shona Lá Fhéile Pádraig!
