"What I really love about Patricia's courses is how well organized they are. The step by step approach allowed me to work at my own place. The quizzes, supplemental materials and conversations helped me to hone my skills. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and it was a fun way to get to practice the past tense. Sign me up for the next course!"
Carl Fahy, Finnavara, Co. Clare
"I have been learning Irish with All About Irish for most of 2023 and my Irish continues to improve all credit to these courses and Patricia’s clear teaching style. Simply put, there is enough language in the various course conversations(comhrá) to make you fluent in comprehension of Gaelic, but of course mastering these takes time! Equally important to improving fluency is that this course offers the opportunity to learn Irish as a thing of beauty and an integral part of Irish heritage."
Ceris Schrader, Washington D.C.
"I'm trying to emphasize speaking and listening over memorization and grammar in learning Irish, but you can't learn a language without grappling with basic grammar at some point, and this course was very useful for giving a brief intro to the basics of the Past Tense all in one place. The key elements were presented in clear and manageable chunks, and I know I'll be re-visiting the course materials repeatedly in future months to review grammar and to practice the conversations. Highly recommended."

A little bit about me...
Patricia Nic Eoin is ainm dom. I've worked with some of the big names in language learning (the Michel Thomas Method; the Olly Richards Story Learning series) and I've also deveoped my own courses for teaching Irish.

You've already tried...
Duolingo is a great place to start learning Irish....but it's just a start! It's time to listen in on some real life conversations and make some real progress!
TV and Radio
Listening to Irish language TV and Radio can be initially challenging for a learner due to the speed of the speech. Listen and learn with the conversations in this course at a pace that suits you.
Why spend hours grappling with text books and grammar books trying to learn Irish on your own when I can teach it to you in no time at all!
