I´m sure the teacher would be more than reasonable if you sent the note.

My eldest son is in 6th class and has to write a conversation in Irish two pages long no spaces between parts. Then, when he has done that write it again in proper grammar.

Now for me this is way too much for 6th class especially if we don´t understand the langague either. We are from England. The last time this happened it took us past 10pm to finish all his homework because we have to look up words that we don´t know. So if any of you can give me help and guidence on this I would appreciate it thanks and asap.

Hi Zoe.
While I think it is important that your son make a good attempt at doing the homework it would be unfair (and I don´t think the teacher would expect it) for him to spend 2 - 3 hours on just the Irish. If your son spends an hour on his Irish homework (and that´s a lot of time in 6th class) I would provide him with a note to accompany his homework letting the teacher know how much time he spent and that there was too much work involved to complete the homework given his level of Irish. If it is an ongoing problem, it would be a good idea to make contact with the teacher to see how he could help/support your son or perhaps adjust the homework requirements.

not being bad but you could always use google translater for some of it because I agree a bit much for 6th class.
