Irish is at 100%
I looked on the "Add a New Course" page and it said Irish is now at 100%!!!!!!!!!! This is great news, but I think it won't be released for a little bit until they have to do some testing. Anyway, are you excited for this?
(EDIT) Irish is now at 99% again. Hopefully it will come back up soon. I will edit this discussion again when it's at 100% again.
Great! Really exciting, just in time for me to get a bit of Irish under my belt before going back to uni next month! I'll be able practice on some patients! :D The poor patients.... :P
I have just seen Lavinae's post on the other thread, I might go and cry into my tea.....
No way! I lost my bet.
EDIT: My goodness, that GIF! Even worse, he's dancing to a remix of Love Never Felt So Good by Michael Jackson (what I'm listening to). :)
Ok, guys, seriously was super excited, but can't add it yet as a course. walks slowly away :(
Still excited though.
Can't wait! I'm making my first trip to Ireland later this summer, and am hoping to finish at least a few lessons and pick up a few words before I go!
Just a heads up, very few people in Ireland are even semi-versed in Irish, never mind fluent in it. You might be on your own! =P
Thank you, letitiaharriet, and understood. We're spending a couple of days in the western regions where we've been told that Irish is the daily language for some people, but that fortunately for us, most of the people we are likely to encounter also speak English. If I get to use "dia duit" even once (and probably pronounced poorly), I'll be surprised!
There are certain areas called Gaeltachts, but they are pretty much in the middle of nowhere. But good luck anyways! :)
Dingle Peninsula and possibly Aran Islands. I think both of those are included if I remember correctly. We were looking at going north of Glaway, but just don't have time to do it all!
There are gaeltachts fairly near Galway and they happen to be very beautiful areas too! Spiddal is probably the nearest town (http://www.galwaytourism.ie/pgaeltacht-connemara.html). Although most people don't use Irish in their daily lives, everyone would understand 'Dia duit' and would probably be pretty surprised if you did pronounce it even semi-correctly.
Also Danish is making incredible progress, when they got the picture it was at 75%, but know it's at 91%! : )
This is so exciting! Dutch should follow it soon after! It's been very entertaining watching Team Dutch and Team Irish race each other to the finish!
