The Learning Irish/General Queries Thread.

Tá curtha ina n-iarrfaidh cothrom cúpla ar chomhairle cabhair/maidir le foghlaim na Gaeilge le déanaí.
There have been a fair few requests for help/advice with regard learning Irish recently.

Seo roinnt leideanna agus naisc más main leat an Ghaeilge a fhoghlaim
Here are a few tips and resourses if you want to learn Irish,


Ranganna Classes.

Conradh Na Gaeilge.

GaelChultúr

Foras na Gaeilge



Ciorcal Comhrá Conversation Group


Creidim go bhfuil Ciorcal Comhrá an rud is fearr nuair a bhíonn tú Gaeilge a fhoghlaim. Is féidir leat éisteacht le daoine eile ag caint ar an teanga agus is feidir leat do focail nua a úsáid.
I have found one of the most helpful things when Learning Irish is a Ciorcal Comhrá(Conversation Group). You can listen to others speaking the Language and can use new words you have learned.


Is Leor Beirt


Foras na Gaeilge


Leabhair Books.

Tá go leor leabhair chun cabhrú leat Gaeilge a fhoghlaim
There are many books out there to help you learn Irish.

Buntús Cainte

Teach your self Irish


Naisc Idirlín Internet Links.

Learn Irish with Liam

Tá i bhfad níos mó ná seo. Más main leat chuie suas rud ar bith gur chaill mé
There are many more resourses than this. Feel free to post up anything I missed.


Go n-eirí an t-ádh leat.

They have Buntús Cainte in a format for your iPod, iPhone, iPad, i.....whatever....

60 lessons, seems to be pretty good so far... not as interactive as the web-based sample...?

And thanks again to all the kind souls who have been helping me with this project of mine

Sending a 10year old to an Irish College?

My concern is, is it better to send a 10 year old to a residential course or to the course where they live with a family, this will be his 1st outing to an Irish college and I'm unsure what to do and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this, more than likely he will be going to a Munster based Collaiste as this is the type of Irish we learned ie Baile Bhuairne in Cork run by Geal Linn, any thoughts really apprecialte.

My Irish is horrible, but I am guessing that you're saying that Facebook has a Gaeilge group that I could/should join?

It means that Facebook is available through Irish


If you go into settings and go to the languages section, you can choose to display Facebook through about 30 different languages, Irish is one of them.

Hello everyone I am new here and I am a total newbie to the Irish language. I currently live in the US in Nebraska, and my family and I are all learning Irish. Part of the reason I found this place was in my search for Irish speakers. My goal is to become completely fluent as much as possible and pass it on to our kids. I am currently teaching my nieces and nephews as I learn but since I am a beginner myself I am always worried I could be saying things wrong.

There's an "as Gaeilge" forum too if you're up to it http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=904

Mind me asking how you're all going about learning it? Do yous use books, or is there a Gaeilgeoir among you?

Right now we are using the internet mostly. We listen that BBC program Giota Beag and I have all the mp3s from Talk Irish 365 on my ipod and there is BYKI, um let's see we have been checking out other websites also, Youtube has been helpful. As for starting out it's all kind of rough at the moment, we got the kids saying please and thank you in Irish and we taught them their colors so far that's it for the kids since we're all learning also it's kind of rough at the moment.


Hm I thought this was the forum for learning maybe I got lost there are so many forums on this site.
