greetings, all;

I am trying to learn a bit of gaeilge via the internet because I just don't have the money to pay for actual lessons. I've found some really cool sites, one is The Irish People Lessons and another is Irish for Travellers. Well, the Irish People lessons are telling me that the word sé means he or it. But Irish for travellers says that sé is the number six.

Is the same word for he, it, and the number six all the same?

*I'm soooooo confused!*

Thanks!

Yep, distinguished from context in which used.
