Fáilte Isteach conversational English classes

We run free conversational English classes for people from new communities through our Fáilte Isteach project - both general classes and classes specifically for Ukrainian refugees.

Fáilte means welcome and that is the spirit of Fáilte Isteach - with classes taking place in a friendly small group, cafe-style setting over a cuppa.

These classes are funded under our SICAP Social Inclusion and Community Activation programme.

Fáilte Isteach is a national Third Age Ireland initiative where people from local communities volunteer their time to teach practical conversational English to people from other countries who live in their community. This work is resourced through our SICAP programme.

The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) is co-funded by the Irish Government, through the Department of Rural and Community Development, and the European Social Fund Plus under the Employment, Inclusion, Skills and Training (EIST) Programme 2021 -2027.
