Grúpa na Gaeilge

This group is for all those who wish to learn the Irish language with me. I am not a fluent speaker but someone who is in the process of learning myself. It is my hope that we can become an interactive group so we can all progress together.

Dia dhuit, a Mháire (hello/God to you, Mary)

What made you think I am into reiki? Not me.

You got it all pretty well right. "Go mbeannaí Dia dhaoibh" is the full version of the common greeting "Dia dhuit/ Dia dhaoibh."

"Muise" is "indeed!" or "well!" It's also like "Now!" Notice the exclamation points. It is an interjection. "Well now!" pretty much expresses my intent. I guess "well crap!" works too. :-)

And you got the last line perfect.

But please don't take me as a fluent, or even proficient, Irish speaker. I'm just a beginning learner still. Maybe an "intermediate" beginner, but still a beginner.

Slán agus beannacht,
Séamas

Hello to everyone, I'm new here and I am a beginner. So far I've purchased two software, and two books. I was referred here by a friend; not from this group though, but I believe I've found the right place for me to learn with my studies. Currently I am a student working towards a BASS w/education concentration while I am persuing a language that was forgotten for a long time with my family. One day soon, I hope to visit my GGGGrandfather's grave in Cork, IE.

Hello there!
Thank you for the warm welcome. One of the reasons I joined Live Ireland was the desire to learn more about the Irish language. This was due in part for my love of Irish music; many of the traditional songs are in Irish. (I was told when we were over there to refer to the native language as Irish and not Gaelic, and that the Irish were very particular about this point.) Anyway, for the past few years or so I have been trying to find materials or classes to teach me how to speak Irish. The problem is to learn the language it seem that you really need a native speaker. I have tried books and tapes, but with little success. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?

Dia Dhuit a Robert! I am happy you put this back up and hope it is ok that I am wanting ot join again. If not, let me know and I will remove myself with no offense taken. I am really busy as I explained, but am interested in re-learning the language sills that I am losing with no-one ot speak with. I do nt know how to utilize quizlet, if oyu might help me, I would appreciate it. Slan.
