There are different paths one may take when starting to learn a new language. For some, the language itself will spark some sort of curiosity in the back of their brains and they’ll simply pick up a book, or an online course and start learning. Others may need other types of stimuli to get the ball rolling (music, videos, audio, podcasts, etc.), but when it does start moving, there’s no way of stopping it.
Depending on what sparks their interest of learning Irish Gaelic, people have different approaches on moving forward with the learning process. Some will use music, others will immerse themselves in the Irish language with the help of online radio, and others will feel so encouraged that they will start something Irish related and encourage other Irish language enthusiasts to join. This is a great way to start practicing the language.
