Bitesize Irish Gaelic

Have you been paying attention on Facebook? There's a new friend in town: Bitesize Irish Gaelic!

There are few Irish language resources I have found that match Bitesize Irish Gaelic. This is a valuable language tool in which users listen to words and phrases spoken by a native speaker. Lessons are short and useful, laid out in logical progression. The lessons are broken down into quick, repeatable nuggets that will not intimidate. It's a great tool not only for learners of every level, but also for study groups, genealogists, readers, researchers and students of Irish history and literature.

In our study group, we have begun using Bitesize Irish at as a group and as homework. Irish language learners around the world can use the web site and all the resources for a very small cost. The teacher is active and involved in the forums, where all students are welcome to ask questions and share resources and experiences. I happily recommend Bitesize Irish Gaelic to worldwide students of the Irish language or culture.
