Spreche Irisch!

Entschuldigung- meine Deutsch ist gut nicht

I am a passionate Irish study, dying to become fluent in what probably should be my native tongue. Anyone who comments and ups in this discussion: , I will give lingots to.

Irish is a beautiful and historic language. It is one of the few Celtic languages still spoken by a sizeable amount of people (approx. 1.7 million). It is thought to be one the oldest living European languages (along with Basque, Lithuanian and Welsh, all three of which I would also like to learn)! At one stage, the Celtic languages dominated Europe, and many accounts of battles between the Latin-speaking Romans and the Celts have been recorded.

Here in Ireland, we study Irish in schools, but it is taught much the same as English is taught in English-speaking countries (which is very counter-intuitive when people are incapable of speaking the language). Hopefully, with a very good Duolingo course that I'm sure alexinIreland could make, we can preserve and get more people speaking this ancient language.

I know that someday, Duolingo will have an Irish course at some point, but, with the help of the enthusiastic Duolingo community, we can bring that moment a bit closer.

Go raibh míle maith agaibh, agus slán go foill!

I have been sending around this message- any May copy and paste

Here everybody, a course for Irish is coming to duolingo- the best website for actually learning a language. Bring that moment closer by sharing this notice and upping the comments.

Why learn Irish?

I'd like Irish to become a DL language, however i do not like you to go to other forums and "offer free lingots" for all who support you. That is not the DL spirit ...
