As indicated on page xi in the introduction of Colloquial Irish, the textbook was developed following the A1 Syllabus of the Teastas Eorpach na Gaeilge (TEG – European Certificate in Irish). The syllabus has been designed by the Ionad na dTeangacha (Language Centre) at Ollscoil na hÉireann, Má Nuad (National University of Ireland, Maynooth). Each “topic” has been developed as a unit in Colloquial Irish. The exercises and sound files in the A1 column under the “Links & Resources” tab at that website can provide further exercise for students using Colloquial Irish. Likewise, Colloquial Irish 2 follows the A2 TEG syllabus.
