The Irish language

Speaking Irish

Speak! Irish is based on a natural learning process - you practice simple grammar and vocabulary tasks in a structured manner until Speak! decides that you have learned the subject matter in sufficient depth to be promoted to the next level. In this way, you'll progress from the basics to more complex sentence structures at your own speed in just the same way a child learns a language - seeing, listening and responding over an extended period of time. If your computer does not have a CD-ROM drive, the software can be installed via a USB stick.

Included in the course

Irish Grammar point
The English indefinite article a does not exist in Irish. Unlike English, a noun on its own can be considered indefinite without the need for a specific word to show this.

    a friend
  • fear
    a man
  • bean
    a woman
  • a day
  • madra

Hooked in Less Than a Week
OK, I'm sold. I've only had TeachMe! Irish for a few days and I've already learned a ton of new words. It's not easy to get Irish instruction out in Seattle. So you get creative and try out lots of books, audio recordings, and CD-ROMs. This is the best Irish language educational tool I have come across so far. It's simple and easy to get started with. Even my young daughter is caught up in the lessons. Great stuff! Now if only you had a Mac OS X version I'd be completely ecstatic...
