The best so far

I have tried several packages and this one is the best. It is easy to use and I really find it fun to progress through the lessons.

It seems that learning the Irish language isn't so difficult after all.

The ease of use and content is truly magnificent. I have never used a program that I enjoyed so much. I had no prior knowledge of Irish Gaelic, and I'm able to progress much more than I ever did in High School!

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
