Since the audio is done by a real human, the reason they do not have audio for each sentence is a financial one (since humans charge per sentence). Other courses are not affected by this, since they use a text-to-speech computer program. They made sure to have at least one audio sentence for each word, though.
"Right, Ireland, we'll let you keep using your language, but in return, you use our alphabet! Do we have a deal?"
"snrk Yeah, all right, sure."
"We want to be able to read it, you see."
"Oh, don't worry, you'll be able to READ it..."
"...What's so funny?"

Help! I came across this phrase today, "Táim ag ithe pióige," I am eating pizza." Tá sí ag ithe sceallóg." She is eating chips.
What I wish to establish is, why is 'an tuiseal ginideach' being used on the nouns immediately after the verb 'ithe'? 0ne chip = sceallóg; more than one chip = sceallóga. Pióg = pizza so why am I eating pióige??? It IS 'an tuiseal ginideach' - isn't it??????????????????????
A discussion about Comhghairdeas isn't the best place to ask a question like this, but here goes.
The verb is ith - ag ithe is actually using the verbal noun form, and the object of the progressive verbal noun (ag verbal-noun) is in the genitive. (Someone pointed out that tá sí ag ithe píoige could be crudely translated as "she is at eating of pie", where the genitive is more obvious).
píog is "pie", not "pizza" (píotsa, ag ithe píotsa).
So, itheann sí sceallóga - "she eats chips", but tá sí ag ithe sceallóg - "she is eating chips" (scealloga is the nominative plural, sceallóg is the genitive plural).
That's like asking why French people spell "Paree" as "Paris", and Italians spell "chow" as "ciao" and Spanish speakers spell "heyzeus" as "Jesus".
Different languages have different mappings between letters/letter combinations and sounds. comhghairdeas makes sense when you follow the Irish rules for mapping sounds to letters.
(Most of the questions asked, and most of the resources available, ask the opposite question - "how do I pronounce this jumble of letters?", but the question that you ask, "how do I write down the sound that I hear?" is also important).
