Good sites for talking to others as Gaeilge?
So far Ive tried out Wespeke.com which I found to be very good apart from the lack of Irish speakers there but does anyone elsse know of any good ones?
Try Facebook. I've found several pages and groups for Irish speakers and learners, including GaelSkype and the Irish Language Learner's Forum.
I don't know of any...but maybe you could post on here that you're looking for a pen pal! ^^
I was recently on google play and i came across an app that was advertising "we welcome Duolingo learners" called WeSpeke. It's a chat room app designed to put you in contact with people who speak the language you're learning so you can practice using it. I haven't used it (yet) so i don't know if it is just text chatting or if it does audio as well, but it looked good.
I tried setting up a forum for it a little while ago but I've since realized that such an environment won't work without a motivation to speak it. That partially why the Gaeltacht are shrinking, there is little market for Irish, but an enormous market for English.
