Crack The Pronunciation Rules For The Irish Language
You'll step through this course with a mix of video of Eoin, founder of Bitesize Irish Gaelic, and slides describing specific tips and rules to you.

The Worksheets are an additional 30-page resource to train you on the rules (and we're here to help with your questions!)
When you see Irish Gaelic words written like "folúsghlantóir" written down, do you get scared?
The trouble is, the Irish language is beautiful, but its agreed spelling standard uses different rules to those that you have been brought up with. There are combinations of letters in the Irish language that you will never see in other languages.
It's not your fault that you can't interpret how to pronounce "folúsghlantóir". But you can start to get familiar with the rules, which I'll step you through. For example, if you learn how to pronounce that "ú" accented "u", then you'll be more confident next time you see that letter in another new word.
In this course, you'll pick up the tools for taking a written Irish language word be able to pronounce it approximately.
New words will no longer seem so scary. Become empowered to pick up vocabulary faster, read faster, and therefore speak sooner.
