Get to grips with the structure of Irish
In this course you will learn how to construct sentences in the present tense in Irish using my systematic building block method.
"I'm never sure if what I am saying is correct or not!"
It can be challenging to hold a conversation in Irish until you get a good understanding of the structure of the language.
Without this understanding there will be confusion. Confusion causes hesitation, and hesitation leads to a lack of flow in conversation.
Listen to entertaining, real life conversations, and learn all you need to know about how to use the present tense correctly when speaking Irish.
How exactly does the course work?
The course is divided into five short, manageable lessons.
Lesson 1 was delivered on 21st July; and the final lesson, Lesson 5, will be delivered on 18th August. (The number of lessons immediately available in your account will depend on the date of purchase).
Sign up before 18th August and receive an invitation to the live class at the end of the course.
Each lesson is based around a short, amusing conversation.
Access the course content via the free app; or thought the All About Irish website.
At the end of August we will meet for a live class online to put all you have learned into practice!
Follow the 4-step plan each week to get the most out of the course:
Watch a short explanatory video and learn about a new aspect of the present tense each week.
Listen to an amusing conversation in Irish; containing examples of one particular aspect of the present tense.
Read the text of the conversation to learn new words and phrases. The text is available in English and Irish.
Time to talk
Listen to the audio once more, this time with pauses in order to give you the opportunity to work on your pronounciation.
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.
I'm a qualified solicitor and I've worked as an Irish language translator at the European Commission in Brussels. I live in Galway city, but am originally from the small village of Kinvara on the south shores of Galway Bay.
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!
