Hi, I'm Brian from rural upstate New York State. Been learning Irish through Pimsleur and Duolingo. Enjoying it, but miss feedback. Would love to spend more time in Ireland to lear Irish, but, you know, the times (pandemic) and the expense. Would love to find a native speaker to Zoom with occasionally.

Dia daoibh! Cén chaoi a bhfuil sibh?

Is mise Fernanda, is as Bhrasaíl mé.

I am learning Irish, and I may say I am at the very beginner level :P . I´m learning it by myself, so it´s a little hard for me. I am using Learning Irish by Mícheál O Siadhail, Gaeilge Gan Stró and also FutureLearn. I hope I can learn a lot here and also be able to retribute all the help in any way.

Go raith maith agaibh!

Fe

Fáilte romhat, a Fe! [".., a Fhe" would be more grammatical , I suppose, but looks a bit odd]

There's also a section below on the forum where learning materials are suggested and discussed.

Dia daoibh! :wave: Is mise Robyn. I live in Queensland, Australia and have recently started studying Irish. I look forward to communicating with Irish speakers and learners in this forum and I welcome corrections at any time. It is a real pleasure to be a member of this forum.

Fáilte romhat a chara,
You might already know about these people, but in case you don't, you might like to have a look at their website.

Cumann Gaeilge na hAstráile

https://gaeilge.org.au - and have a look at the links page (naisc)
(NB Breandán - the one who runs this forum is also from Aussie)

You might find it surprising, but there are some Irish manuscripts in Australian libraries. For example there is a version of the Fate of the Children of Lir/Oidhe chloinne Lir in Melbourne State Library of Victoria - MS 10357 page 33 to page 64.

GRMMA for the links Franc. Both are very useful and good to know about.

Hi there!

My name is Megan, and I live in New Hampshire, USA. My great grandparents chose not to teach their children Irish because they thought it would help them overcome the problems with being newly immigrated. It's a loss I feel keenly, and am looking to remedy.

While my long-term goal is to become at least conversationally fluent in Irish (GM), my immediate need is, I hope, simpler.

I have just finished my first novel, and several characters speak Irish. As my crazy only goes so far, 99% of the "Irish" spoken is typed in English, with the story implying the change.

I would very much like to use at least a few actual Irish terms/words, mainly endearments and nicknames.

I have about a dozen words/terms that I have found (via Rosetta, Google Translate, books, and what I could glean from non-interactive sites). While I feel pretty good about their accuracy/usage, I would greatly appreciate having someone take a peek at my soon-to-be glossary, just to be sure. Any help is welcome, and please accept my thanks in advance!

Hope all is well with everyone who reads this, and have a great day. :)

Dia dhaoibh. Is mise Derek. Is as Nua Jersey mé, ach tá mé i mo chonai i California i mbaile beag cois farraige darb ainm Cayucos.

Very new to Irish (on week three of Zoom classes through Gaelcultúr in Dublin). Very excited to be learning the language and hope to be visiting and practicing in person when this pandemic finally passes.

Slán go fóill.
