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

Irish Gaelic is Enjoyable!
If the time is put into the program as required, the new language is easy to pick up on. I like how the program includes auditory, visual, and tactial learning. I found it hard to listen to the CD in the car with only Irish Gaelic words. I would prefer the English translation to be given along with the Irish Gaelic on the audio CD. In the future it would also be great if there was a way to pull up the program on my android tablet.
