The language club is for Scoil Dara students who are not native English speakers and want to practice/improve their English skills through games and speaking with others in a fun, informal setting
The French club will be a fun way for Scoil Dara students to learn a little more about the French culture through songs, games, movie clips, social media and much more. It will also give students a chance to share their knowledge of the French culture and practice their French language skills.
