I'm thinking of doing a chapter of Learning Irish a week. There're 36 chapters, so it'd get finished next February. If anyone else has that book on their todo list, we could work through it together.

Why so slowly? Well, I abandoned the book last year because I wanted to find something better and because I got busy. But I didn't find anything better, and I would have completed the book by now if I'd focussed on slow, regular progress.

The only other book that teaches Connemara Irish is Colloquial Irish, which has 14 chapters. If someone wanted to work through both books we could either do it in 50 weeks or stick to the 36-week schedule and double up on the books for the first 14 weeks (might be reasonable since the early material should be easier). An argument for adding Colloquial Irish is that, since there are only two books, ignoring one of them means missing the opportunity to hear other recordings and other explanations, and if you leave Colloquial Irish for a later date it might be hard to be motivated since it's more basic than Learning Irish.

Both books can be downloaded from various websites, or found in bookshops etc.

We could discuss it on a thread here and probably also by email.

I'll start in a week or two. Anyone else?

That book is on my list, and I actually started going through it at the end of last year. But I'm learning via Duolingo at the moment, and want to finish all my lessons there before jumping into the book again. I haven't heard of Colloquial Irish, though. I'll have to add it to my list.
