    Learning for children

    Spraoi Ville is an online virtual world for children to learn Irish, it is like an Irish version of Club Penguin, with voice overs throughout. Spraoi Ville consists of a school, theme park, food shop, clothes shop and a farm. The kids have to learn their subjects through Irish in the school and they are awarded coins for learning and getting answers right which they can spend in the other parts of the world. Tries to teach kids that if you work hard at school you can afford nice things in life! Gives children the chance to have their education in Irish! 

    Spraoi Ville was created due to the current debate regarding whether to drop Irish as a Leaving Cert subject in Ireland. Michelle the creator of Spraoi Ville felt that if children were taught Irish in a fun way in primary school they would become fluent in the language and subsequently love it. Also with the huge number of Irish families emigrating to America, Australia and Canada, she felt that it wasn't fair that these children would lose out on an Irish education because of our government. She didn't want them to be the so-called lost generation.

    We should cherish what we have before it is lost.
