How to speak Irish
The English indefinite article a does not exist in Irish. Unlike English, a noun on its own can be considered indefinite without the need for a specific word to show this.

Speak! Irish knows which words and phrases you've already learned and those you still need to practice. Each topic consists of listening practice, a printable Irish-English lexicon and the opportunity to record your voice and see how your pronunciation compares with Irish native speakers.
I've been learning Gaelic for a couple of weeks. I had thought I was not good at learning languages but I'm finding this course very intuitive and effective and I have already learned a lot of words and phrases. The software also allows you to hear the correct pronunciation of the words, something which is very important for learning a new language.more...

OK, I'm sold. I've only had TeachMe! Irish for a few days and I've already learned a ton of new words.
It's not easy to get Irish instruction out in Seattle. So you get creative and try out lots of books, audio recordings, and CD-ROMs.
This is the best Irish language educational tool I have
come across so far. It's simple and easy to get started with. Even my young daughter is caught up in the lessons. Great stuff!
Now if only you had a Mac OS X version I'd be completely ecstatic...

An old boyfriend of mine was Irish and i loved his accent. He used to use a lot of Irish words in the middle of an English conversation. He was quite surprised when I phoned him speaking Irish!!

I can really say is that I am making very rapid progress and having a lot of fun with this way of learning. I'm really looking forward to the using the Irish I've learnt in June on my trip to Ireland.
Caution - it can be addictive!
