I've finished my Irish tree!
Well done! I certainly remember Irish as one of those 'will I ever manage to get to the end of this?' trees—not because the course is badly designed (although I do think it could learn a few things from the Welsh course), but simply owing to the sheer difficulty and irregularity of the language.
I was on the 2nd chechpoint (18~24 skills) past yesterday, and I finished it yesterda, after many hours of hard work. After finishing my Catalan tree,( I've seen that you also comented), I was decided to finish another tree, I was doubting on which tree should I finish first, Swedish, or Romanian. And I decided Irish. In 2 days, I completed 4 checkpoints, and I'm very proud of that.
I think verbs are a little easier in Welsh than in Irish. There are also more Welsh speakers in Wales than Irish speakers in Ireland, although there are definitely more Irish speakers in the US than speakers of Welsh, so it's slightly easier to find people to practice with if you go the Irish route. Personally, I think either are great choices, particularly if you are interested in Celtic languages. Both are very rich in history and culture and you'll be among learners who are very passionate about the continued usage and survival of these languages.
Hello friend, I appreciate your work and it is very good that you have finished your Irish tree
Very well I will give you 2 lingots
Very well and continue like this.
I'm a 100% sure that I could handle a conversation in Esperanto, German, English, Catalan and Spanish (native), I can't hold a very long conversation in High Valyrian because the course is not completed yet, or at least I think so. But I can keep a conversation in Irish, but my pronunciation is very bad, that's the only thing I would need to keep a conversation in Irish.
Just give the course a try. If you like it, then continue learning it, but If you don't like it, just leave it.
The course was of 5 checkpoints and it contained many useful things, so I'd say, yes, the curse was worth the effort. And I've seen that the Irish contributors said that they were going to create 2.0 tree soon.
