Wisconsin Irish (Irish Club)
I think it's a shame that within Duolingo clubs there are no features that allow for communication outside of the five emojis with which they allow you to react. I think part of the club-concept should be to encourage one another, ask questions in a comfortable environment, and create discussion within a community. Learning a language is a living, active process!
Wth that in mind, I want to start this thread for anyone within the Wisconsin Irish club here on Duolingo (although anyone is welcome, not only those within Wisconsin) so that we can better create a positive, comfortable, and encouraging community for people to come together to talk and learn about Irish.
To those in the club who find this thread, or anyone else who would like to contribute, fáilte!
I am not from Wisconsin but I am always heartened by the amount of interest in the Irish language in the US.
I'm just a few miles from Wisconsin.. I'll see if I can try and find this group!
Fantastic! Like I said below, I will be making a Facebook group so that we can all better keep contact and interact with each other (as a community should!) so keep an eye out!
Apparently, Duolingo only allows for fifteen members to be a part of any given club so at the moment it is full. However, please stay tuned. I will be making a Facebook group for this club (and Irish learning in general) that will allow us to be more interactive while not restricting us to only 15 members. Additionally, if someone drops out, I will let you know straight away!
Sure thing, it actually looks like there is a spot now so give it a try!
