Learn as much as you can in any situation that presents itself. Never be afraid to try something even if it scares you to do so. And give it all you have. Be a good listener and a good communicator and be fair.

Linguistic 
The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Jewish Studies




 

Junior Cycle - Jewish Studies

Subject Group: Humanities
These subjects explore the ways in which humans live and communicate in the world. Human life is examined by looking at our past, our present and into our future. These subjects help people to express themselves clearly and develop their reasoning ability.

Brief Description:
Jewish Studies seeks to promote an understanding of Judaism as a major world religion and to give students an appreciation of its historical, literary and cultural contribution to the world.
How will Jewish Studies be useful to me?
Students taking Jewish Studies will develop an understanding and appreciation of different beliefs, peoples and cultures and a tolerance and respect for the values and beliefs of all.

In today's increasingly diverse culture, it is important to have an understanding of the different cultural and religious traditions found not just in Ireland, but in Europe and the wider world.

Jewish Studies also contributes to the development of skills such as historical and literary investigation, working with evidence, information processing, argumentation, critical thinking and analysis. It has links with other subjects such as Civics, Social SPHE, Religious Education, and History.
