The May issue of our paid subscription print newsletter, An Gaeilgeoir, has been edited and is with the printers. That means it could find its way into the mail by the weekend, although with the Memorial Day holiday, you may not have this fascinating edition in your hot little hands until early next week.
This issue includes tips for ferreting out those words that you can't seem to find in the dictionary, a short recommendation for testing yourself on your language skills, some advice about balancing your use of "e-tools" in your studies, and a couple of puzzles, one a "word ladder" and the other a test of your ability to recognize "internal inconsistencies" in simple sentences.

We have booked space for the last weekend in July, Saturday-Sunday the 27-28th, for our annual Bernie Morgan Memorial Workshop at St. John's University in Collegeville, MN (about 1:20 drive from the Twin Cities). Some of you know that we had penciled in that date, but that there had been some facility issues due to remodeling of our usual on-campus locations, but we believe we have that figured out now.
We'll have more details about this event before too long, but the short version is that classes start about 9:30 on Saturday, run through Saturday evening, and conclude at 2:00 on Sunday afternoon. Dorm accommodations are available on campus, including a Friday night stay for people who are driving a long distance. All levels taught, from absolute beginners to students with a pretty spiffy handle on the ol' tongue.
Our next offering of "Introduction to Irish Gaelic" through St. Paul Community Education will be in the fall of 2013, starting in September.
No class on Memorial Day, May 27
June 3 is the last day in Central. Classes need to be thinking about summer locations and schedules.
