ça alors! An Francach tú? Níor thuig mé sin agus tá neart Béarla agat leis. Cad as duit sa Fhrainc?

Dia dhuit!

I want to learn Gaeilge, speak it, read it, write it.
I have read a lot of good comments about gaeilge gan stró (or its online equivalent Ranganna)
However, after trying the first lesson for free, I was disappointed.
They just make you repeat sentences without dissecting them no explaining why they're pronounced like that.
I feel like a parrot just repeating stuff.
How can that be the most popular learning support? Help :winkgrin:

I found the pronunciation guides in Learning Irish to be the most comprehensive.

And I have noticed that Our Man in Brussels has made a page with some very nice notes based on it and has even kindly provided a link to it in his signature, but here it is to make it even easier for you: ... cript.html


WARNING: Intermediate speaker - await further opinions, corrections and adjustments before acting on my advice.
My "specialty" is Connemara Irish, particularly Cois Fhairrge dialect.
Is fearr Gaeilge ḃriste ná Béarla cliste, cinnte, aċ i ḃfad níos fearr aríst í Gaeilge ḃinn ḃeo na nGaeltaċtaí.
Gaeilge Chonnacht (GC), go háraid Gaeilge Chois Fhairrge (GCF), agus Gaeilge an Chaighdeáin Oifigiúil (CO).

Then, of course, the best advice is always this: move to the Gaeltacht and hire several full-time private Irish tutors! hahahahahaha
After learning a few languages, my opinion is that the only way an adult can hope to achieve real fluency is by marriage and cohabitation with a native speaker. Unfortunately my wife is refusing to even discuss this option.


is mairg nach bhfaca mé do fhreagra roimhe seo hahahahahaha

Maybe try "WeLive"?
