Our Bitesize Learning Principles for Irish Gaelic

Being overwhelmed is probably the most common feeling when you consider learning to speak another language. If you’re reading this, you probably have great personal motivation already: to make a deep personal connection with your Irish heritage. It’s a way to express who you are inside. It’s giving a language to what you feel.

If it Feels Difficult, You’re Doing it Right

We were recently testing a prototype quiz in our Bitesize Irish Gaelic course. We emailed each member, asking them to take a Bitesize lesson early on in the course to test out the quiz.

How to Be Sure to NOT Learn Irish Gaelic
