it is amusing that liking beer is one of the first phrases this this course teaches me. should i be insulted as an irish person?
Audio says "Is maith leat é"
Got this as well!
And I. I don't see where to report an error even though the comment-text above says not to do it here. Are the texts recorded by a gaeilgeoir?
Next to the green “Discuss sentence” button that you’d pressed to leave your comment is a green “Report a Problem” button — use that button to report an error.
So do I, duolingo. So do I...
It makes me a jolly good fellow.
Ah, yes: Tom T. Hall from 1975. Thanks.
Try as I might, I cannot work out how she is pronouncing "beoir". Be-owge? Weird sounding word.
It seems to me that she is pronouncing it in the Connacht dialect. This link gives 3 different pronunciations - Ulster and Munster seem pretty phonetic while Connacht as you say is hard to work out.
Would "Is maith liom" would for stating that I like other things? Like activities, objects, or ideas? Or is there something better suited for other subjects?
Yes, it would be used for liking other things also.
For the last time! I'm too young to drink beer.
Sín é cen fath tháinig mé anseo!!!
Would this literally mean something like Beer is most good with me?
Yes, except for maybe not including the comparative "most" part.
The expression for "I prefer beer" is rather "beer is best with me"
"Is fearr liom beoir"
How is "maith liom" pronounced. All i hear is malam. Is the ith of maith silent? Any good places to get pronunciation how to online?
Recordings of maith in the major dialects can be found here.
Is brea liom beoir
