Irish adjectives

Unlike English, adjectives in Irish are placed after the noun. Adjectives in Irish agree with the noun they describe. This means that adjectives that describe a feminine noun have a special form.

Examples for using Irish adjectives

an geimhreadh fada
the long winter
an geimhreadh bog
the mild winter
an geimhreadh dorcha
the dark winter
an geimhreadh fuar
the cold winter
an geimhreadh crua
the hard winter

Reviews for Speak! Irish

Product Rating

I've been studying Irish in America for about two years now. Without native speakers, it's tough. I love the audio feedback portion where I can say a word and it's analysed to the voice pattern of a native speaker.

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.

Very Easy to Use

I bought this because my wife and I decided we wanted to learn a second language for ourselves to use.
The software is so very, very easy to use and really helps you to learn fast. My wife used it for about a
week and by the end of that week she was teaching me words and phrases. Highly recommend this
software to anyone interested in learning a second langauge!
