I grew up for some part of my life-in Ireland. I am in the
U.S. now. I am South American by birth. I would like to
know if there is any way I can learn Irish gaelic online.

There seems to be a language course you can sign up for at Solas Éireann's site: www.solaseireann.com The site says that the course is 'still' free.

There's another one at a site called Eo Feasa. I don't have the URL, but try doing a search for it. There's a fee involved.

But first, here in the Daltaí website, there is an extensive phrase, grammar and vocabulary section, all under "GRAMMAR". Some entries have the sound recorded.

Then, try Kay's website: www.id.ie/~sefton

I'm not sure how much you can learn just on the Internet. Get live instruction if you can. Books, tapes and a couple of CD-Rom Irish courses are available from sources like the Irish Bookshop in New York (212-274-1923). Elsewhere in this site, Daltaí lists weekend courses in North America. Go n-éirí an t-ádh leat. Good luck.

This my first time on this net - I hope I do it right. The name is Bob. I don't know about the stuff the people have after their names. This is for Raul. Two sights you might be interested in are www.ceantar.org/lessons/index.html. It lists some good sights for grammar and vocabulary with sound. A complete course put out by Irish People magazine have a course that is free and has a very understandable pronunciation guide. Hope this helps
