Tá áthas orm faisnéis a chur chugat faoi ranganna Gaeilge i dTír Thíos (Melbourne, Victoria, An Astráil). Tá eagras anseo, "Irish Language Association of Melbourne" atá ann. Ofráileann siad ranganna chun bunfhoghlaimeora agus chun meánfhoghlaimeora, lá amháin gach seachtain. Cuireann siad ar fáil cleachtadh gramadach agus comhrá. Chomh maith tá teagmháil chomhrá oiche eile. Faoi láthair tá timpeall a dhá núíosach deag agus timpeall a hocht bhfoghlaimeoirí eile. Tá triúr mhúinteora, agus beirt chanteora ducháis acu. Úsáideann siad an leabhar "Buntus Cainte". Tá bunrang Gaeilge le fáil chomh maith i hOllscoil Melbourne.

Feictear dom go bhfuil comhphobal Éireannach beo anseo. Beidh fleá cheoil Éireannach an mhí seo, faoi chomirce le Guiness. Tá nuachtán a chuirtear amach cóicís, Irish Echo atá ann. Coinníonn sé nuacht faoi spórt, ceol, agus polaitíocht Éireannach.

Más mhaith leat eolas áirithe a fáil faoi ranganna Gaeilge i mBaile Melbourne, glaoigh ar guthán le Morris Scanlon (03) 9401-4824.

I am happy to send you information on Gaelic classes Down Under (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia). There is an organisation here called the "Irish Language Association of Melbourne". They offer classes at beginner and intermediate stages on one day each week. They provide grammar practice and conversation. As well as this there is a conversation group another night. At the moment there are about twelve newbies and about eight other learners. There are three teachers, including two native speakers. They use the book "Buntus Cainte". There is also a basic Gaelic class in the University of Melbourne. [...]

If you would like further information on Gaelic classes in Melbourne, phone Morris Scanlon (03) 9401-4824.
