Start at track 12

Language 30 was always about stuffing a school course or two inside the smallest amount of space. The speakers are important, and this Irish one is rough enough to be realistic, but clean enough to get something out of. At least for me, I want to get vocabulary before phrases, it is quicker to learn and gives me a library of sounds to work with. In order to do that, track 12 is the start. Also, the instructions are speak after the second pronunciation, not the first. And, run through the tracks 20 times.

Great to practice, needs updating and details

I did enjoy using this on a long car ride, but have a couple issues:

There are multiple dialects in Ireland and it's not clear which dialect, or dialects (?), are being used here.

The fact that there is no mention of the EU, nor Euros, nor internet (!) makes me think this is a really old program. Needs updating to be more relevant.

Awful

the Irish isn't even pronounced right! the format is confusing. and for a "crash course" it crashed more than it was a course

Mediocre

I have a good standard of Irish and listened to this to help refresh me. It doesn’t really have a proper beginning middle or end and a lot of random stuff thrown in. As a beginner I wouldn’t recommend.
