In March 2017, Bitesize Irish Gaelic is going to hold a paid live online event for Irish language enthusiasts. Stay tuned for more (such as taking our free Irish for Beginners email course, which includes our weekly newsletter).
Live Event for Irish Language Enthusiasts: Why would you want to attend the event?
Learning to speak a little of Irish Gaelic is a real personal connection with your Irish heritage and with Ireland’s culture. But it can be daunting, scary, and demotivating, especially if you’re without the support of regular meetup.
Bitesize Irish Gaelic exists to help you make the Irish language part of your daily life.
Rather than focus on force-teaching you as much of the Irish language in one session, we want to give you the tools, resources and strategies for making the Irish language part of your everyday life.
It will cover various topics that should be of interest to you. It will include webcam streaming of the speaker where possible. As a participant you’ll be able to interact and ask questions.
Stay tuned for more details on the Live Event for Irish Language Enthusiasts, and feel free to leave a reply below this blog post with your ideas and suggestions for the event, which we’re planning now.

Thank you for commenting.We are glad that you like our blog post.
My biggest problem learning Irish is that I am hard of hearing and that makes it extremely difficult to understand pronounciations when using audible sources. Personal instruction is an obvious advantage as I can ask for clarification when necessary. In addition, I find the rules governing what sounds a letter makes very daunting and am therefore progressing extremely slow. I have a lot of Irish words in my head but do not know how to use them. I believe that, not being exposed to language in use, lack of familiarity with use makes the response that much harder to process then say. I would welcome exposure to spoken Irish with open arms.
