A LOCAL primary school is among the first to pilot a new language application in a bid to get pupils speaking Irish.

St Patrick’s Primary School, Aghagallon, is promoting the learning of Irish through a new mobile phone application, which is proving popular amongst its pupils.

Focusing on non-smart phones, the app helps students learn the basics of the Irish language

With a few minutes each day MobLang teaches the most common phrases.

Special exercises help with pronunciation, while games allow users to practice newly learned words and phrases.
