    HL Tips (from Sryan Bruen) SryanBruen

    I will post daily tips to y'all - if I can come up with one! These tips will 100% make Irish a bit easier.

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      For memorizing studied poetry or stories / essays or letters, make sure you know every sentence in English also. This helps you to remember easily and once you know the English, you don't need to look at your copy and therefore, it's like testing yourself all the time non-stop. This is very useful for Leaving Cert Irish students as well.

      Today's tip:

      Don't learn off whole stories but learn off different phrases! This way, you can write interesting stories and not the same crap over and over again and you're being creative about it instead of wasting your time!

      Today's tip:

      Learn at least 5 new Irish words everyday. Get Revisewise Irish or Less Stress More Success Irish and go in order by the vocabulary in that of learning 5 new words / phrases each day!

      Today's tip:

      Study a poem that is the easiest for you to learn. Make sure you understand your sample answer fully in English and the subject of the poem too. Most students use the very short poem 'Subh Milis' by Séamus O'Neill but despite its size, it gets you full marks and is the easiest to learn!

      Today's tip:

      To become more aware of Irish, I'd advise you at least watch a bit of TG4. Creid é nó ná creid é, it actually works once you try and listen!

      Today's tip:

      To become better at Irish grammar, make your own Irish grammar book with a load of exercises. Get a few books including revision books and grammar books of Irish and then copy all the exercises on a certain topic into your grammar book and then boom, you have loads of practice in one book! The more practice, the better! Like because of this, I know all my tenses very well as well as a few other grammar points - doesn't have to be just about tenses!

      Today's tip:

      Make a list of everyday phrases like conversation for example:

      Dia duit! (God to you / hello)

      Dia is Muire duit! (God and Mary to you / hello to you too)

      Conas atá tú? (How are you?)

      Tá mé go maith. (I am good)

      Tá mé ceart go leor. (I am okay)

      Then practice all the phrases and speak them with your family or friends. Your friends should also like to do the conversation in Irish because they are learning it too and is a benefit to them also, not just you. Remember:

      Breatha teanga í a labhairt! - A language lives if it's spoken!

      Today's tip:

      Make a weekly plan of learning each section individually. Do not learn multiple things at once and do not leave a day without learning something. Here is a sample weekly plan for learning Irish.

      Monday - learn 5 new words + practice the tenses

      Tuesday - learn 5 new words + practice your studied poetry

      Wednesday - learn 5 new words + practice the prepositions and idiomatic verbs (verbs that require idiomatic phrases such as "Tá ____ agam" - I have OR "Is maith liom" - I like etc)

      Thursday - learn 5 new words + practice your studied prose

      Friday - learn 5 new words + practice a letter (one letter each week and learn it off! and then when you run out of letters, practice exam questions and then write that letter and learn it off)

      Saturday - learn 5 new words + practice your essay / story / debate (learn it off and make sure you understand each sentence in English)

      Sunday - learn 5 new words + practice the genitive case / verbal nouns

      Today's tip:

      If you would like to practice your vocabulary and a few SMALL phrases then why not be a little creative and create an Irish poem like I did? Here is my Irish poem as reference to show what I mean:

      Tá a fhios agam go bhfuil grá agat dom

      Féach ar sé i do shúile

      Grá ar an dóigh leat póg dom

      Ná insint aon bréaga

      Abair beidh orainn a bheith le chéile

      Tríd an lá stoirmiúil

      Le chéile go deo

      Feicfidh mé stanadh ar i do aghaidh

      Gach ceann de na bronntanais a faighim

      An bhfuil aon rud i gcomparáid duit

      Ach a thaispeáint ní dhéanfaidh mé dearmad

      Na hamanna a fuair mé a chaitheamh le leat

      Ná insint aon bréaga

      Abair beidh orainn a bheith le chéile

      Tríd na laethanta stoirmiúil

      Le chéile go deo

      Feicfidh mé stanadh ar i do aghaidh

      Gach ceann de na bronntanais a faighim

      Today's tip:

      Practice writing out your studied poetry or studied prose or certain letters or stories etc and don't keep on just reading it! Remember, you will learn easier once ya know the English translation and you write the thing down. As you write down more frequently, you will soon never forget it again!

      Today's tip:

      Even though I would like students to write interesting stories, the syllabus doesn't mark it on plots. The syllabus marks your stories on accurate grammar (90% of marks on grammar and 10% of marks on plot). So make sure you know all your gramadach!

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      Make sure to divide your time evenly in your exam. Here's a good timetable to follow for HL Irish:

      Páipéar 1

      Cluastuiscint - 25 nóiméad

      Léamhthuiscint - 30 nóiméad

      Trialacha Teanga Comhthéacsula - 15 nóiméad

      Ceapadóireacht - 40 nóiméad

      Therefore, you have 10 mins to look over your work. If you get stuck on a question in the reading comprehensions, go back to them in this spare time of 10 mins (or more if you complete the other sections early)

      Páipéar 2

      Prós - 30 nóiméad

      Filíocht - 30 nóiméad

      Litir - 20 nóiméad

      Therefore, you have 10 mins to look over your work. Remember that if you don't finish in on time, you will not be allowed to continue. Make sure to stick to a good timetable like this!

    23. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      For part B of Q3 on Paper 1 of your exam, make sure you know prepositions (inc. prepositional pronouns (e.g. Le (Liom, leat etc) and Ag (Agam, agat etc) etc), the genitive case and numbers. Revision books such as Revisewise Irish give good easy to follow and learn exercises on each of these grammar topics.

    24. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      When writing sentences in Irish for essays, stories, letters etc, do not use overly complicated ones that you would in English. Irish is much different. The Irish composition question is marked as following

      2 marks - Style of story

      8 marks - Subject of story

      40 marks - Accurate grammar

      Therefore, your grammar is very important and see why you mustn't write complicated sentences? Only write in sentences of Irish that you know! For example, I wanted to write a phrase in my story saying "Tension was at its highest" but I did not know how to say that, so I simply said "Tension was above the average" (Bhí teannas os cionn an mheáin).

    25. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      If you're aiming for an A, in your composition, try to use a few phrases that use An Tuiseal Ginideach (The Genitive Case). Part B of the grammar question always asks about this!

    26. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      When answering the letter question, write in the tense you're given of the verb in the question. For example if it said "Cheannaigh tú albam ceoil" - You write in the Aimsir Chaite, the past tense because "Cheannaigh" is in the past tense.

    27. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      For unseen poetry, you have to answer at least ONE question from part B of the questions. I'd always advise you to do the last on it which always asks "Cé acu dán is fearr a thaitin leat _________________ (names of the poems)? Luaigh dhá chúis ar thaitin an dán leat.". You can nearly always answer this question with the same answer. You just need to know the following vocabulary,

      Íomhánna - Images

      Pearsantú - Personification

      Codarsnacht - Contrast

      Cosúlacht - Comparison / Similarity

      Meafar - Metaphor

      Samhail - Simile

      Uaim - Alliteration

      Onamataipé - Onomatopoeia

      Say something simple such as:

      Thaitin na híománna difriúil sa dán liom. Mar shampla, ____________ (and an example from the poem). Then say the same sentence except a different technique and then give another example from the poem. Then there's that question easy and done!!!

    28. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      Unless of course you feel very confident and you're fluent into Irish, do not ever choose the formal letter choice on the paper. This is because you would have learnt a lot more vocabulary for it than the informal letter plus an extra address (formal letters have two addresses). An informal letter is much easier and less stressful to do so I'd always do one of them if I were you instead of formal!

      Aoife_9776

      Any other tips for the unseen poetry? I find it impossible.

    30. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      When choosing a letter on your paper, make sure you know what to write. If there is a letter that is close to (or exactly the same) one you did in class then do that one instead of one you like to write such as a football match and you did not do that one in class? Pick the closest one to examples you did in class, never choose one you liked to write about unless you're fluent into Irish. Remember that by following this tip, there's a good few marks already gone into your letter because you know the vocabulary for it!

    31. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Aoife see an example of part B (iii) by me for the 2015 exam paper.

      Is fearr liom an dán Ceacht Baile mar a hábhar - Daoine óga agus tuismitheoirí críonna. An fáth eile go dtaitním an dán seo liom mar úsáideann an file na mothúchain, mar shampla grá agus díomá.

      This is slightly worded different than the tip above because I just like to change it once in a while.

    32. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      For the change the tense grammar question, the conditional mood hasn't come up on state exams yet but trust me, it is worth learning it even though it is the trickiest one to learn.

    33. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      For any Irish vocabulary you have NEVER seen before that is in an unseen poem on your paper, there is a 90% chance it is translated below it in a "gluais" into simpler Irish which you should know. As long as you get even a little bit of the poem's subject then you can very easily guess what the tricky sentences mean (with the help of the gluais) and easily answer the questions.

      @SryanBruen do you have an email to get in touch for some study notes

      Yes I am bruener45@gmail.com

    36. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      For choosing which of the compositions you do on your exam paper, I'd always go for the Scéal. This is because that it requires less preparation and is shorter than the rest of the choices. For a scéal, as long as you know a wide range of vocabulary and a couple of phrases and verbs, you are already prepared for it. In contrast, for the Aiste and the Díospóireacht, you have to know a huge range of phrases which can be tricky and stressful to learn. It is for these reasons why I'd advise you to pick the Scéal choice and also the second choice on the paper of the scéal because the first choice consists of a line you have to begin your story with. However, the second choice gives you a setting and that's it, it doesn't tell you a phrase or anything that you have to put in it whether you want to or not.

    37. avatar image

      Aoife_9776

      For me most of the time, The gluais is no help to me. I usually don't understand even the helping phrases or sometimes I misinterpret them which throws me completely off track. Also, is it ok if I email you too for some study notes?

      Yes it is

      Today's tip:

      If you do not even understand the gluais in unseen poetry then look up those words or phrases and learn them off like vocabulary! Remember that building up your vocabulary is always a good idea!

      Today's tip:

      Out of all the irregular verbs in Irish, you must know "Bí" (To be) in particular inside out as it is the most important verb to use and it is impossible to not use it. Be aware of all it's different forms

      Aimsir Chaite: Bhí, Bhíomar, Raibh

      Aimsir Láithreach: Tá, Bíonn, Táim, Bím, Táimid, Bímid, Bhfuil, Níl

      Aimsir Fháistineach: Beidh, mBeidh

      Modh Coinníollach: Bheinn, Bheifeá, Bheadh, Bheimis, Bheidís

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      You don't have to learn a long complicated sample answer for studied poetry. If you learn even a sample answer that's just half a page, then you can get full marks because your quotes (2-3 are necessary) and the spaces between them make it look like a full page as well as your big writing. See mine here for example of how I write mine on my paper and I got 15/15 marks. This is the exact thing I wrote on my mock paper by the way.

      (i) Rinne mé staidéar an dán 'An Gleann inár Tógadh Mé' le Dubhghlas de hÍde i rith mo chúrsa. Is é ábhar an dán ná grá.

      (ii) Tá grá le feiceáil go soiléir sa dán seo. Léireoidh mé an téama seo le shamplaí ón dán. Tá grá aige don dúlra. Bhí an-craic aige sa ghleann nuair a bhí sé óg.

      "Shiúil sé ó áit go háit"

      Thaitin an t-uisce fuar úr go mór leis.

      "San uisce fíor ba mhór mo dhúil"

      Luaigh sé an giorria agus an fia agus an sruthán sléibhe. Ní raibh eagla air roimh aon rud sa ghleann. Tá grá aige don ghleann. Léiríonn sé a ghrá don ghleann go soiléir tríd an dán seo. Cheap sé go raibh an dath ar gach rud ina áit dhúchais sa ghleann.

      "Sa ghleann inár tógadh mé"

      Cheap sé go raibh sé ábalta aon rud a dhéanamh sa ghleann.

      Today's tip:

      When answering reading comprehensions, the key to questions is the first few words or first two words - i.e. question words. You should underline the question words as this will make you concentrate on what to look out for in the comprehension. If you do not understand these question words then you are very likely to fail léamhthuiscint.

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      Make sure to be on time for an exam. For the CD, you will not be allowed enter the exam hall until it's over and then you would have lost 40 marks already. If you come in late after the CD or for paper 2, you are not given any more time - you MUST go by the timetable you're given by the State Examinations Commission which every school has to follow.

    57. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      If you are not able to create various stories (so not the same all the time) for your composition, then stick to one subject - type of story for your exam. Plenty of students choose Timpiste (An accident) as you can fit into nearly every title that comes up on Irish papers. I did Robáil Banc for my mock because I found that easier - but for you, I'd advise you to do Timpiste. If you are able to create various stories then do so, do not let the way Irish is taught get between your creativity and your learning of the language!

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      Like studied poetry, you needn't learn a long complicated answer for the studied prose. You can learn something like I did here: (this was exactly what I wrote down on my mock) (I got 0/15 all because I put down "grá" as the theme and "grá" is NOT to be seen in this story - my teacher didn't give me any marks for writing my whole sample answer out correctly!)

      (i) Rinne mé staidéar an ghearrscéal 'An tÁdh' le Pádraig Ó Conaire i rith mo chúrsa. Is é ábhar an ghearrscéil ná grá.(Make sure you do not make the same mistake that I did by putting down a wrong theme)

      (ii) Is léir go bhfuil réimse leathan de mhothúcháin sa scéal. Tá grá (again don't mind "grá" here) le feiceáil go soiléir sa scéal seo. Taispánfaidh mé an téama seo le neart samplaí ón scéal.

      Bhí triúr buachaillí ar an trá lá amháin. Bhí siad i bhfolach ar an mbád. Ní raibh fonn oibre orthu. Bhí áthas orthu nuair a smaoinigh Pádraig ar chleas. Bhí margadh muc ar siúl an lá sin. Bhí na muca i málaí ar an mbád. Theastaigh ó na buachaillí dull ann. Chuir siad ar chrannaibh é. Tharraing Pádraig an tráthnín fada. Bhí brón agus díomá air mar an duine go tharraing an tráthnín fada a bhí ar an duine fanacht. Chuaigh Séamus agus Miclín ar an mbád. Thit Pádraig ina chodladh. Nuair a dhúisigh sé, bhí sé fliuch báite. Chuala sé go ndeachaigh an bhád go tóin na farraige. Bhádh na buachaillí. Chuaigh sé abhaile agus d'inis sé an scéal dá thuismitheoirí.

      Is léir go bhfuil grá (don't mind "grá" here again) agus cairdeas le feiceáil anseo. Léirigh mé na téamaí seo le neart samplaí ón scéal.

      He said to that "Foirfe ach níl grá le feiceáil sa scéal" (Perfect but life is not to be seen in the story). Make sure you don't make the same mistake that I did! Plus have an intro and a conclusion like I did there above with the body as your summary of the story.

      I just noticed this tip and haha my English is so bad in it.

      Today's tip:

      When choosing a letter on your paper, make sure you know what to write. If there is a letter that is close to (or exactly the same) one you did in class then do that one instead of one you like to write such as a football match and you did not do that one in class? Pick the closest one to examples you did in class, never choose one you liked to write about unless you're fluent into Irish. Remember that by following this tip, there's a good few marks already gone into your letter because you know the vocabulary for it!

      Here is the last sentence fixed

      Remember that if you do not follow this tip, there's a good few marks already gone into your letter because you don't know the vocabulary for it!

      Sorry about that! haha

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      If you are asked for two specific point make sure you lay out your answer to clearly show two points rather than one big answer with your two points contained within. This will help ensure the marker is mistaken when correcting your answer.

    67. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      This tip is not just for Irish, it's also for ALL subjects. Do not learn everything one night in the subject or leave it all to the night before the exam (that night you just revise what you're not sure of). Take it step by step and create a timetable for yourself. One night you can do Irish and maybe study your studied poetry? Then maybe a night sooner in the week, you study the tenses? It don't matter which you choose as long as it's not a big pile in one night - cause that increases stress!

      SryanBruen

      Today's tip:

      If you don't want a sad face and a weep, the best cure is to get a good sleep! - A little phrase by me haha. This goes for ALL subjects! If you want to get the best of your ability on the subject on the day of the exam (after studying of course), then a good sleep is all you need! If you stay up all night studying, panicking and stressing then you're likely to fail - so get a good sleep!

      Do not ever be afraid to ask questions! Although the examiners can’t help you with the exam, they are able to clarify a question if it is poorly worded, confusing or if there is a typo.

      Today's tip:

      When do your exam, it don't matter which section you do first, apart from the listening! Like after the listening, you don't have to go straight to the next section which is léamhthuiscint, you can do your aiste or scéal next if you want to and get that section done and over with, since it requires the most thinking! Same in paper 2 where you can do your studied prose / short story or studied poetry first before the comprehensions. You are NOT forced to do it in order with the exception of the listening which you start with straight away!

      Elisha447 please post in a relevant thread. Same with you Grace OBeirne I meant to say also. I do not like threads getting so off-topic. This thread is ONLY for tips on JC HL Irish.

      Today's tip:

      Make sure that you know a wide variety of themes for your studied poem or short story / prose. If you choose a wrong theme then you might get 0 marks even though you wrote out your sample answer correctly - though the examiner might be friendly to give you a few marks. However, you want FULL MARKS, you don't want a few marks, so get your act together and learn a few themes that could come up on your paper for your studied literature.

      Today's tip:

      This goes for ALL SUBJECTS. You should not be asking for notes off somebody (unless you're very lazy....), including me (language vocabulary is different though). Remember that your best teacher is yourself! This means that you make your own notes! Trust me, you will learn 10x easier when studying your own notes.

      Hi I was just wondering how meany pome,story,and others I should have prepared?

      Thanks for help.

      Today's tip:

      You needn't worry about how many poems and short stories (not counting scéalta, aistí nó litreacha) you have prepared. As long as you have prepared 1 poem and 1 short story, then you're virtually set! I can assure you that there is always at least one theme that fits into the poem or short story you study for your Irish paper.

      Which are the best stories and letters to prepare?

    81. avatar image

      Aoife_9776

      And which of the preposition things (Sorry, I have no idea wat they're really called lol) like liom,leat, leis, lei, agam agat etc. should I learn? Which are the ones that I'll most definately need in the exam?

    82. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Well Aoife, anything can come up for a letter but for sorry if you want to stick to one subject and make things easier then Timpiste (all you have to change is the setting on your exam - to suit the choice on the paper). For letters, just keep practicing every past exam one and then you will 99% likely see one of those on your exam - An Ghaeltacht was the one I chose for my mock on the paper - and I was lucky because that one I was the one I knew best and I got 30/30 marks for it.

      They're called Na Forainmeacha Réamhfhoclacha (The Prepositional Pronouns) LOL. You must know all in their basic form, so like:

      Le means With

      Ag means At

      Ar means On

      Roimh means before

      ^ Basic forms

      For the prepositional pronoun forms (Liom, agam, romham etc), I'd advise you to Ag, Ar and Le and you will be grand.

      Just for letters (ONLY letters), also learn Chuig.

      Like you do not say,

      Scríobh tú dom

      You say,

      Scríobh tú chugam - You wrote to me

      Aoife when I post BUMP in a thread, it is to push it up to recent threads in the forum so I can keep it "updated" and that people can see it. Do you get what I mean?

      SryanBruen any chance that youd have a sample Aiste for the 2016 Rio Olympics as i think there could be a high chance in it coming up in the JC this year considering thats its come up in previous years when the Olympics were on, however it did not come up in 2012 which makes an even higher chance of it apperaing, thanks!

      Say if you wrote an essay that was completely off the title would you only loose the 8 marks for topic or would you loose them all?

    105. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Good question... lose the 8 marks. As long as you have accurate grammar, you have 40 marks!

    106. avatar image

      RóisínNiChonchobair

      Unfortunately, that's not true. I actually asked my teacher about this a few weeks ago as I was willing to surrender 8 marks also. You won't get 40 marks for an essay that's off the subject. We have to do the hard root!

      Sorry if this has been asked already, but do you have any advice on using native material for Irish? As in TV shows, newspapers, music, etc.

    111. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      What do you need to use TV shows, newspapers, music etc in Irish? Are you doing the new JC Irish?

    112. avatar image

      A-123St

      No, I just mean improving fluency in general, not in relation to the JC syllabus.
