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??

Eager to start the course

I just received my course and have started using it. The packaging is kept to a minimum, which is good for the environment, and something I appreciate. Once the CD-ROM installed ... very pleasantly surprised. Ultra complete information and the explanations are very clear without being tedious. Everything is there for serious, progressive and enjoyable learning.more...

I'm using TeachMe! Irish and I find it it very good. I am learning through Italian, which I think is pretty unique.

I am telling anyone interested in learning Irish about TeachMe!
I have told Mrs. Ursula Castaldo, at www.gaelico.net about it. I know she is very interested in news about Irish courses.

Thanks a lot, for this wonderful Irish course!!!.
