Half way there!

I got to level 20 last night and feel the need to post something to celebrate.

I am really enjoying the course and am so so impressed by how quickly it matured after it was released, it is rare now to find anything that needs reporting. Obviously Crann 2.0 will be great - it would be useful to have more stuff after all the grammar, the Modh Coinníollach and so on, at the end, more opportunity to use it. I do feel that lack of sentences with "bíonn" and do be missing practice in verbal nouns.

My main suggestion though is that one of the special skills be made up of lines of some poems, Mise Raifteirí an File or Mo Mháistir Dorcha or the like; if the lines appeared in lessons then you'd end up knowing them backwards and you could read and enjoy the poems without effort afterwards. It'd be better than flirting; "do you want to be buried with my people?", "have you land?"; save us!

Congratulations! I just started learning Irish today so I have quite the mountain to climb. Any tips I should do to increase fluency? Thanks!

Reading a little grammar at the start helps a lot, eg why the extra h's appear in words.
