To supplement "Learning Irish" I plan on purchasing the "Turas Teanga" DVD. Is it worth it to buy the books and CDs too? My main reason is to improve my listening and comprehension, and to get some exposure to the other dialects. Go raibh maith agaibh.

I am using all three parts of the Turas Teanga package CD/DVD/Book. The DVD is definitely worth the investment. It is about 8 hours in length and is very entertaining. It has all three major dialects featured. It is amazing how much you learn when you have situational awareness (during skits etc.)!

Although, it is probably at the middle to advanced intermediate level with a focus on conversation.

Oh, and of course, I would get the books and CDs too. They are very effective tools.. much more entertaining than Learning Irish (though not as thorough).

And many of the skits are transcribed in the book.. they all work together as a triple pronged learning approach.

For an intermediate / advanced beginner I would reccommend both the book and the DVDs highly.

Turas teanga is wonderful! It reachs out on so many levels - The book and CD course is informative and entertaining enough and then you have the DVD. Wow!
