The Irish language is benefiting from improved content constantly being published online. It’s a cliché to say – there’s never been a better time for you to be learning online.
From what we have seen, much of the services available to you are concentrated on teaching Irish Gaelic to Irish people who have already learned Irish in school. That’s fine, and it’s needed. For example, the Conradh na Gaeilge organization helps organize local classes throughout Ireland. Ranganna.com by Gaelchultúr provides online lessons, seeming to focus on improving the language skills of existing Irish speakers.
Our mission is to specifically teach people outside of Ireland the language. If you have never learned Irish in school, you have very different needs to an Irish person looking to develop fluency.
The United States is the ‘busiest’ country on Bitesize. So to answer the question, that’s why accessing Bitesize Irish Gaelic is in US dollars by default.
But remember, if you do join us, there are lots of other currencies available at checkout. Membership, at time of writing, is $15/month. I suggest catching that price fast, as it’s subject to change in the near future!
