Tip: Speak and pronounce an Irish nursery rhyme

Lesson: Count from 1 to 10 (members only) now has pronunciation recordings for this lovely little nursery rhyme in Irish Gaelic:

A haon, a dó, muc is bó,
A trí, a ceathair, bróga leathair,
A cúig, a sé, cupán tae,
A seacht, a hocht, seanbhean bhocht,
A naoi, a deich, císte te.

It helps you to learn how to pronounce Irish language words through its rhyming, by speaking aloud. In English, it means:

One, tow, a pig and a cow,
Three, four, leather shoes
Five, six, a cup of tea,
Seven, eight, a poor old lady,
Nine, ten, a hot cake.

It is difficult to learn to pronounce Irish Gaelic words, but you can do it. By practicing speaking the language, learning Gaelic vocabulary, and learning its pronunciation rules, you’ll be nicely on your way.
