Dia dhuit, is mise Damian Horne, iam a 17 year high school student and live in Melbourne's inner suburbs(Australia). Iam of Irish heritage and iam very interested in learning Irish(Gaeilge). I have been trying to find a course or a teacher in the Melbourne city area for around the past six months with no sucess. All i have found is a few language bookshops offering books on tape and limited dictionaries but no tuition as of yet. Any help in finding a course, teacher or any information would be greatly appreciated.

Go raibh maith agat

Damian Horne

Well... you can try "http://www.irishpage.com/irishpeople/". This page has a lot of information (128 lessons) on the Irish language. I think it's the best one.

And you can also go to "http://www.smo.uhi.ac.uk/gaeilge/gramadach/canuinti.html" and have an idea about some differences between the most important dialects of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The page "http://www.taic.btinternet.co.uk/" has information on Scottish Gáidhlig, and that's a pretty good one.

At "http://www.ling.uni-potsdam.de/~green/gaeilge/gaeilge.htm" you can find some good material on Irish (the page is originally in German, so look for the English translations of the archives if German is not your best).

In "http://www.irishgaelictranslator.com/" there is a forum with people interested in Irish and some lessons on the grammar which are given by them.

In "http://www.maths.tcd.ie/gaeilge/" there are eight lessons that can give you an idea of the Irish grammar. You can do this one first.

I particularly think that you have not only to enter these sites, but to search more sites (especially on pronounce... you can't trust the pronounce rules of most sites in Internet), so that you can have an image of Irish.

Of course none of these sites is better than a teacher or an Irish course, but if you prefer, you can enter these...
