There are no charges for these classes which are being run by the Post-Primary Languages Ireland, a project of the Department of Education and Skills.  Part of the remit of the Post-Primary Languages Ireland is to diversify the provision of foreign languages at post-primary level and to support all students in their learning of foreign languages.
