I’m fairly excited that, in the next couple of weeks, I’ll be starting to give basic Irish Language lessons to a friend and her family in Montreal. It seems like it’s been ages since I’ve spoken Irish with anyone, and I hope people still find my instruction style useful.
For those who don’t know, Irish is a difficult language, and learning it without a teacher is nearly impossible.
However, there are many resources on the Internet that can help the classes go down easier. Here are some resources, freely available, that I found indispensable.
An Irish Dictionary: http://www.irishdictionary.ie/home
Television in Irish: http://www.tg4.ie/en/tg4-player/tg4-player.html
Basic class materials for beginners: http://www.hofshi.net/
I’ve used these materials extensively, and found them to be some of the best out there for beginners.
If you’re looking for a more formal classroom setting, have a look at Comhrá: http://www.comhra.org . They offer classes in three levels, from beginner to advanced, and the winter semester should be starting in early January.
