Since we started Bitesize, we met and interacted with a lot of amazing people who wanted to learn Irish Gaelic. Some people had a really proactive attitude and started right away, but others had some doubts before joining the Bitesize community.
Most of their concerns were focused around being too old to learn a new language and lacking the time to do so. Over the years, after talking to a lot of people interested in the Irish language, we learned that’s just not true. While learning a new language isn’t as easy as it when you were younger, technology and organisational skills made it so much easier.
Yes, you can’t learn a new language when you’re older, if you use the same tools you used in school. That’s why we turned to technology when developing the Bitesize method. You’ll notice that all our courses and information is presented in easy-to-understand “bitesize” pieces, using content that stimulates your learning desire and potential. We have text-based, video and audio lessons so you can assimilate the content however you like to.
Technology helps us develop tools and you to immerse yourself in Irish. In this rebroadcast of the 4th Bitesize Irish Gaelic Podcast episode, we’re talking to Prof. Kevin Scannell who used technology to learn Irish Gaelic, and would like to help you achieve this as well.
This is a re-run of the Bitesize Irish Gaelic, 4th episode, in the English language.
