Book with cds - all three major dialects are represented. Very useful resource for many of the basic phrases needed in everyday life around the house and in the ordinary lives of families.

"There is more than 2000 phrases of normal everyday activities from the three main
dialects."

Sounds good :good:

It is recommended that you always wait for three to agree on a translation.
I speak Connemara Irish, and my input will often reflect that.
I will do an mp3 file on request for short translations.

Sounds a great idea... particularly if you are looking for a 'clúidín' fast!! It is refreshing to see a good idea come to light. Could come in handy as an aid in teaching 'everyday' Gaeilge also. Are these CDs easily available or are they, like many other things in our language, either unavailable or 'out of print'?

Still available - we found the resource very useful when we started out.

I ordered that book/CD many years ago and I love it. This time, real native speakers have been recorded (unlike most learning stuff), you clearly recognize the accent of Gaeltacht people... And many things are very useful even though you don't have children, because it's full of everyday sentences :good:

Is there much 'learning stuff' recorded by people who hadn't Gaeilge at an early age? I remember hearing 'Buntús Cainte' as far back as I care to admit... and they sounded very 'gaeltacht' and 'at home' with the language even then! They had those three grand little books that went with it. If you were to follow that course all the way through to the end, begod you'd have a fair bit of Gaeilge handy for your needs. Has that type/standard of recording changed?

I have bought Gaschaint but would love to have the PDF that Saoirse posted above as a fast reference(since expired). Would someone kindly share a download link to a file version of the book?
