The Irish language

Irish Gaelic is spoken by about 300,000 people in Ireland. Of those, roughly 75,000 have Irish Gaelic as a first language. If you want to learn the Irish language, our learn Irish software will have you speaking in a very short time.

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. The course uses standard Irish with voices from Connamara, Kerry and Cork. If your computer does not have a CD-ROM drive, the software can be installed via a USB stick.

Included in the course

  • 1 CD Rom with software to learn Irish

So good!

A must have!
I have bookshelves full of learning materials for the Irish language, but TeachMe! Irish is a favorite of mine. It's a really good tool for a beginner who is looking to obtain a wide variety of vocabulary and a good concept of grammar for casual conversation, reading and writing. It greatly improved my word recall, sentance structure and pronunciation. I will also add that I am not much of a computer user, but even with my limited skills, I had no trouble at all getting this to work for me. I bought this because I wanted to be able to do visual, auditory and typing to nail home the basics. The combination of the three learning styles hasn't let me down! The number of levels provides appropriate increasing development suitable for a strong foundation to progress from the beginner stage. No matter how you learn, this can add to your knowledge;just take the time to sit down and give this program a try.

Great Service
I can't comment yet about the usefulness of the Irish Beginner's that I downloaded but I will return at a later date to give an opinion. Right now I can only comment on the quality of service and value for money which I rate very highly.
