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 bought the course about two weeks ago and since then I’ve been busy learning. At first, it’s hard to get used to the language, because Irish Gaelic is very different from other languages. You get used to it very quickly, however, and the software also gives you encouragement as you advance through the levels.
It’s a good learning experience and a lot of fun too. I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn Irish Gaelic.

I worked quite a lot with the course. I lost interest after a while so I stopped for a couple months. I then decided to give it another try and was surprised at all the stuff I remembered. I think I'll stick with it this time.

Learning is fun with this course. It is also good that everything can be repeated as many times as you
want. The only drawback I see is that you cannot print out any lessons, vocabulary, or the like and thus
learning must take place exclusively on the computer. I would like to take the course on paper, so that I
could take it anywhere, and learn when and where I have time and inclination - without a PC! Slán!

I liked the repetition of each phase and the ability to go back to any level that I need to review. I learn at
my own speed/time. Very nice.
