Want to learn the Irish language? Or pick up where you left off? Na Gaeil Chicago teaches and supports the Irish language in Chicagoland.

Fall 2020 Classes

Na Gaeil Chicago’s Irish language classes return for the Fall 202020 term in September and run through January 2021. Connect with Irish culture, heritage and new friends through the first language of Ireland in an informal and fun setting. Beginners are welcome. If you have no prior experience with the Irish language, the Fall term is your starting point. The Spring term picks up where the Fall term leaves off. If you already have some Irish, you may well be able to start in the Spring term, too.

You can email us at with any questions. We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Tuition for the Fall term is $130 for new Na Gaeil Chicago students and $105 for our returning students. Tuition includes books and materials.

Although classes are usually held at The Irish American Heritage Center, all Fall 2020 classes will be online, through Zoom.

All Chicagoland students are welcome. You will need a desktop or laptop computer, a video camera, and a microphone. We really miss holding classes at the Heritage Center, and we’ll be back there with in-person classes as soon as possible.
