Translation:My Polish is slightly better than my Irish.
I remember asking my Hebrew teacher how to say Gaelic. She said גרמנית. I'm glad this mystery was finally solved for me.
"Irish (Gaeilge), also referred to as Gaelic or Irish Gaelic, is a Goidelic language of the Indo-European language family originating in Ireland and historically spoken by the Irish people." - wikipedia
Back in high school, when my Irish phase was at its peak, whenever I told someone I was learning Irish, I’d get one of two responses:
- ‘Oh, you mean Celtic?’ (More educated folk would say ‘Gaelic’.)
- ‘Isn’t that just English with a funny accent?’
It’s pronounced Írit, not Irít. The latter would be a feminine first name, and would generally be mistaken for עירית ‘chive’.
until now in my head this word was 'polnit', not 'polanit'. reading this alphabet is sometimes exhausting tbh
