Gaeilge Ghasta covers vocabulary and spelling from each of the 10 themes of the 1999 Curriculum, with common grammar mistakes also addressed and the correct structures reinforced. There are 10 tests on each theme and they are structured to work as 5-10 minute tests with 10-12 questions in every test.
The Gaeilge Ghasta tests cover areas that will have been taught independently of the tests but they do allow for short, quick mini-lessons during correction where the class teacher sees a need for such. These mini-lessons will be reinforced over the following tests, providing context and opportunity to solidify the learning. Children will see their common mistakes and create their own strategies for ensuring they avoid them in the longer term.
