Easy language learning
Irish culture and history has been an interest of mine for several years, and as a result, I've been on the lookout for language courses in Irish for some time. After trying several basic courses that I quickly grew tired of, I discovered Linguashops TeachMe! software. TeachMe! turned out to be the tool I needed to maintain my progression and interest in learning the language. The aspect that separates TeachMe! from other courses is the AutoLearn-feature. This feature guides you through the entire course, and tracks your progress along the way. All you have to do is press the "Autolearn"-button, and the software will select the lesson it deems appropriate. These lessons will test you thoroughly in grammar and vocabulary, from simple translations to more complex restructuring of sentences in the language you are attempting to learn. When you've typed in the correct word/sentence, a recorded audio track will read out the correct pronounciation for you. You will progress quickly from lessons you do well in - and lessons you do less well in will be repeated more frequently. Progress to the next level is determined by how well you did in the last level, so learning is done at your pace - not a generic, predetermined pace. In addition, the software has some nice features, including a "pronounciation"-feature where you can practice pronounciation by reading words out loud into the mike of your computer. There were a couple of sentences I noticed with small mistakes ('they' switch with 'you' for example). However, this only apply to a very small portion of the available words/sentences, and by the time you reach those phrases, your language skills will enable you to immediately spot the mistakes - so no need to worry about learning the wrong words. All in all, the software is fun, entertaining, and educational to a higher degree than most of the other softwares I've tried. I have no problems recommending this course to anyone wanting to learn a new language.

Traditional Language meets Modern Technology
It's amazing that a non-phonetic language (many silent letters) such as Irish Gaelic (one of the oldest Indo-European languages still spoken) can be so effectively learned... thanks to TeachMe! Irish software. Having studied Latin and French the old-fashioned way, I find TeachMe! Irish to be a very refreshing new method for language acquisition. It's great fun and you can't go wrong purchasing this product. And customer support does a great job answering emails.

Nothing but praise!
I have been delighted with the content of the Teach Me! Irish cd-rom. I am studying Irish at university and have found the extra knowledge invaluable. The customer service is also very efficient and a pleasure to deal with.

I tell everyone about TeachMe!
This is such an amazing, comprehensive way to learn. So much fun too. I've passed this along to my Irish Gaelic classmates as well as co-workers who want to learn French and Spanish. When I told my daughter that Catalan was offered, she was very excited. After living in the south of France for a while she wanted to learn this language too. I love the way I can learn grammer, hear it spoken, read it, etc. My only wish is that I could do it on a MAC. I have a MAC at home and a PC at work. It's worth it to me to spend off hours at work to learn this way. Kind of tells you how good it is doesn't it! Who would go to work on off hours to learn if it wasn't amazing?? Slan, Annie Evans
