Pidgin is installed by default in Ubuntu and Xubuntu for Kubuntu there is Konversation, in addition there are many different irc clients available, including clients to use in a terminal, but an easy to use GUI application is xchat. These links give some information on Pidgin and Konversation,there is a wiki page for Xchat and finally a thread which should help you to reach the irc classroom, there is a reference in the thread to a java applet available from the classroom wiki page.
