a chara,

a few good sites for learning the irish language are, the site you are currently on of course and on the irish site of search for sefton i think its called and thats a really useful site. also check out they offer every irish book in print and alot of them would be useful to learners of the language such as yourself. they also have cd`s and tapes as well to help you in your quest to learn irish. also im sure they have a few irish language cd-roms as well whick might be useful.

Dia Dhuit, A Clemens,

Some more sites that might help you:

There must be many Irish in Vienna, and even though most Irish people aren't interested in the language, there may be a few there that would be willing to help an enthusiastic student. Are there any bars or cafes in Vienna where Irish people congregate or any Irish clubs where you could enquire? I suggest that you place your message on the above sites and you might be lucky and find some such person.

Ádh mór (good luck)
