  1. yes this is the stuff i like. speaking videos and repeating the same irish words untill i get the hang of them. i dont understand the printed gailic so i had to give my learning a miss but i could learn gailic if i could see and hear videos with every day speech like ;how are you.and other speeches like “Can i come to your house” “What are you having for tea” and a lot more words that could be joined to make a sentance, “Tonight” Today “Tomorrow” “up” “down” “out”
