Foghlaim Dé hAoine

For the week that's in it, I'm selecting a relevant phrase from my handy Essential Irish book, which I got from the Conradh na Gaeilge siopa on Harcourt Street. A steal at only 10 euro and chock full of useful (you might even say essential) phrases.

Braitheann sé go mór ar na pointí.

For those of you joining us from the other side of the world, this was the week that the Leaving Certificate results came out. Combine the SAT with your junior year GPA and your personal essays on your college applications. Then multiple the pressure, stress, and importance by 1,000. Now you're in the ballpark of how important and stressful the Leaving Cert is for most Irish students.
