Member Interview: Gaeilge Gach Lá le Peadar

Eoin caught up with Peadar, being a member of Bitesize Pobal. That’s our private online Irish language learners community for GROW members. Signup as a GROW member.

They discussed how Peadar achieves Gaeilge Gach Lá in his life, and how he came (back) to Gaeilge.

Peadar mentions he follows:

Gaeilge gach lá, agus Gaeilge go deo

Peadar wrote out a list of values that are important for him for following Gaeilge Gach Lá:

Patience – It is not a quick journey.
Understanding – A lot is required but it will come so give it time (patience).
Forgiveness – Accept that mistakes will be made by you and others so forgive those who will forgive you.
Competitiveness – Make a game out of it and join in with others.
Communication – Its good to talk as it is better to learn in a group and exchange ideas etc. than try to learn in isolation. You may be able to go so far alone before needing the support of others.
Bravery – Do something new to help learn and make the journey enjoyable.

Eoin also mentions the free Gaeilge Gach Lá email series, which includes the ebook “Ten Secrets for Gaeilge Gach Lá“.

  1. A Pheadair,
    Bhain mé an-taitneamh as d’agallamh! Tá do chúig dhearbhphrionsabail scríofa agam!

  2. I really enjoyed this. It’s great to hear how other people learn and the ways in which they work towards Gailge gach lá. It’s also interesting to hear about the experience of learning Irish at school. I wish I’d had that as part of my own education, but I doubt I’d have made the most of the chance at the time! I printed out Peadar’s values after seeing them (I think) on a live chat and find them really useful, when I’m finding learning a little challenging.
