Learning Irish [Hard?]

For me learning Irish Gaelic is not that hard because I have a good background with Ireland and my mom's great grandfather moved from Ireland to America. I have a book that is in Irish Gaelic and I understand it! If you need help, if you think it is hard to learn Irish Gaelic, just come to me because I will help you. I will answer your questions. In any language you speak.

I am currently on level three in Basic in learning Irish. I wonder whether you might be able to explain the sheer amount of syllables and vowels dropped when speaking Irish out loud? As far as I have seen, when reading out loud from text, one drops a lot of letters and substitutes others. Could you perhaps give me a tip for pronouncing words from text? Because I honestly speaking find speaking French and Japanese easier.

Spend some time familiarizing yourself with broad and slender vowels and how they are affect consonants. It helped me figure out spelling.

@RobinRosso1 Well when you speak Irish most Irish people drop the g in the words that end with ing. So instead of helping its Helpin. If you really want that nice Irish accent you can just pretend you have a golf ball in your mouth like at your cheek. The syllables however and the vowels dropped when speaking out loud are the gs and the letters like o and stuff like that. Remember this when speaking Irish out loud. You do not want to speak with a french accent or Japanese accent because the Irish do not understand you then. Good luck on speaking and if you need more help just tell me. I'll give you 10 lingots in hope you can do more.

I am from a tiny town somewhere in Africa. It's dusty, scorchingly hot in summer and in general everyone waits for rain with baited breath, then complain when it floods. Yourself?

Ha ha ha! In Ireland everyone waits for the summer all year then complains that they are too hot, but the summer only lasts 3 days so it's okay. In those 3 days we manage to get enough sun to have one of the highest skin cancer rates in the entire world.
