St. Patrick's Cathedral

Arriving at the end of our journey!

Our journey to the city of Dublin finishes at Saint Patrick's Cathedral. It is also known as The National Cathedral and Collegiate Church of Saint Patrick, Dublin, or in the Irish language as Ard Eaglais Naomh Pádraig. Founded in 1191, is the largest church in Ireland and one of Dublin's two Church of Ireland cathedrals. It has a 43-metre (140 feet) spire.

At the end of the session, you will have:

  • visited St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin.

  • listened to a conversation about the city of Dublin.

  • reflected on all the different tasks you have worked on at the Learning Diary.

If you visit its official website, you will have the chance of learning about the history of the Cathedral with the interactive timeline.

Saint Patrick is also the patron saint of Ireland and the celebration is on March, 17th. You can obtain more details about the festival in Dublin at the Saint Patrick Festival website.

Remember that Saint Patrick's Cathedral must be part of the route at your Google Sites map.

The city of Dublin

Once we have visited all the main landmarks in Dublin, let's listen to one of its inhabitants talking about Dublin as an international city: Marion talks about Ireland's most famous city.  

Listen to the conversation and answer the questions to check what you have understood. After having completed this project about Dublin, you have to do an oral contribution giving some good reasons to visit Dublin. As usual, record it and upload it to your personal Learning Diary.

In order to prepare this oral activity, you have to take a look at the following rubric to try to do it as well as you can. Your teacher can help you with your sentences. 'Rubric to assess an oral presentation'.
