An Aimsir Chaite – Past Tense cheat sheet

Telling stories is an important part of any language – it could be talking about your weekend, reminiscing about schooldays, telling a joke or breaking down what happened in the latest episode of a TV show. Stories are also a great opportunity for us to develop both our receptive and productive language skills.

In our online course Siúlach Scéalach (launching Friday 9th September 2022), Bitesize Irish members practise listening to stories and accounts of journeys, something that will help fine-tune your comprehension skills and give you more confidence when engaging with Irish language culture. You will also improve your ability to tell stories with practical tips on how to connect ideas, letting you create longer sentences that will add nuance to your speaking and writing.

For your pleasure, we have produced a free downloadable and shareable Cheat Sheet about An Aimsir Chaite (the past tense). Download below!

    1. Hi Tom, great question. The pronunciation can be complicated. The pronunciation is outside of the scope of the quick cheat sheet. Just to note that Explore and Grow members have access to the related Siúlach Scéalach self-paced Irish language course, and it features clear recordings and phonetic spelling. Here is more information on how to sign up: https://www.bitesize.irish/memberships/
