Okay, I am really interested in learning Irish. I have read from www.erinsweb.com and while it seems good and has good pronunciation, I need audios to learn from. I am from the U.S. and every state has a different way of speaking, pronunciation. If there aren't any audios on the web, could you direct me to a good Irish book (or two) with audios that also teach the grammar, sentence structure, etc. I would really appreciate it if you would help me on this. Thank you.

Hi Cody,

You could try the "Giota Beag" courses online on the BBC Northern Ireland website, which are in Real Audio format. (This is in the Ulster dialect)

To hear native speakers and improve your pronounciation, try listening to Raidió na Gaeltachta:

Ádh mór!

O Siadhal's book and tape set "Learning Irish" is very good. The dialect is Cois Fharraige as opposed to the Ulster you will hear on Giota Beag.

I would agree with Risteárd regarding RnaG. It's quite a neat experience to hear something spoken in a completely natural conversation and to finally get a word or a phrase here and there. I'm still not able to follow a complete conversation but it does wonders for my confidence to be able to pick out bits and pieces.

Le meas,

James

Ó Siadhail and the sites listed above. It doesn't get any better.

Ádh mór ort!
