“English Every Day” Campaign for Unlearning Irish

Unlearn Irish

Limerick – 1st April 2024

We didn’t see this coming!

The Irish language has become much more popular in recent years.

The overwhelming success of building a worldwide community around the Irish language has brought its dark sides.

The Irish language is popular. Too popular, in fact.

Irish has become synonymous with general “coolness”.

Introducing our new English Every Day campaign to help people unlearn Irish!

The revolutionary method is centred around:

  • Listen to monotonous English language tapes for three hours per day to help you erase your knowledge of Irish.
  • Zoom calls with fluent monolingual English speakers
  • A new app with hourly reminders to not learn Irish – keep up your motivation by building a streak!

With this method, 9 out of 10 participants forgot how to say “Dia dhuit” in Irish after just one week!

You can unlearn Irish. Most people quit and they don’t allow themselves to quell their inner curiosities. We believe in you!

Click here to sign up for our revolutionary Unlearn Irish course.

P.S. Thanks for all your humour on this April Fool’s Day. We love our community and your passion for the Irish language through Gaeilge Gach Lá.

    A Eoin, go raibh maith agat as an ríomhphost greannmhar. Tá súil agam go raibh 1 Aibreán maith agat!

  2. Thank you to Eoin for his great sense of humour, in applying his “Unlearn Irish” April fool’s joke.

    Although its contents can be a bit heavy and might not provide motivation for everyone but, with Eoin’s enthusiasm for the language in mind, I have recalled an opinion expressed by the late poet Seamus Heaney about the importance of learning Irish. It reads …

    “Not to learn Irish is to miss the opportunity of understanding what life in this country has meant and could mean in a better future. It is to cut oneself off from ways of being at home”.

    It goes on …

    “If we regard self-understanding, mutual understanding, imaginative enhancement, cultural diversity and a tolerant political atmosphere as desirable attainments, we should remember that a knowledge of the Irish language is an essential element in their realisation”.

    I’m new to this platform so I apologize if the quotation above from Seamus Heaney has been posted before.

    Le meas,
    Donal

    Got me, couldn’t believe what I was reading until I read Heather’s comment. I thought Eoin had lost the plot. Tá mé ag gáire. 😂👏

  4. Go raibh míle maith agat as ucht an nuacht go halainn. Níl a fhíos agam faoi tíortha éile ach tá sé Gaeilige go cinnte ró-haghaidh i Sasana in faoi lathair. Bhí mé i Londain aon t-am agus d’fheic mé comhartha amuigh teach tabhairne gur “fáilte” a rá. Bhí mé AN-abhlóir!
