About these courses

At The Dublin Academy of Education we run Oral Preparation Courses for Leaving Certificate students. These intensive oral courses are taught by Ireland’s leading language teachers and are 4 hours in duration.

With the Oral marking component of the Leaving Certificate worth up to 40%, it is of paramount importance that students are fully prepared for these examinations.

To achieve this, students are taught a number of critical examination strategies. As well as these strategies, students will go home with a comprehensive set of exam-focused notes, which will give them the help and the confidence they need to achieve their best possible results in the upcoming Oral exams.
