...and I'd like to get it back! I've been living in Sweden for nearly four years, and it seems that learning the language here has caused Irish to take a back seat- a situation I've never been really happy with! I bought "Progress in Irish" the last time I was home, but it's difficult, mainly because the book is old-fashioned, and that I don't exactly have anyone to practice with. All advice, hints, tips, tricks, web addresses etc would be greatly appreviated!
Go raibh míle maith agaibh!!

Ní caillte atá sí, ar ndóigh a Philip, ach is ina codladh atá sí. Tiocfaidh sí leat arís de réir a chéile ach caithfidh tú a bheith foighdeach léi. If you're patient at the start, when progress is slower than you may desire, it shall pick up in speed as you come back into it.
Tá Progress an-an-mhaith agus bheadh sé an-mhaith ag duine ar do nós féin a bheadh ag athnuachan a chuid Gaeilge. Déarfainn rud amháin faoi. Scríobh isteach os cionn na gceachtanna 'Léigh OS ARD!'
Don't undervalue reading some short simple texts (yes, aloud). The snippets at Nuacht.com should be possible, sílim. You don't have to understand everything initially. Just aim at getting the gist of what people are saying/writing. Yes, I would advise volume of reading rather than quality of understanding. Regard your eye as an inlet to your subconscious. It all goes in.
The Gaeilge amháin side of this board at Daltaí ought to provide you with an outlet for stumbling forward to perfection.
