I love how "bainne" sounds! Anyone else? Maybe it's it's just me.

I have trouble hearing the difference between Ólann and Ólaim :c

are there other words where you have difficulties to here if they end with "n" oder "m"? Maybe it is to familiar for your ear to reflect. It could be helpful if you do it like we do in musicstudio by hold your hand behind your ear and form the outer part of it all little bit more round and take the rest of your hand - fingers closed - as a second ear part, as if your ear gets larger. If you still have difficulties try also to concentrate and close your eyes while listening, good luck to you

When I did this one, it wouldn't let me pass it until I put in 'ye'. I was very confused yet oddly satisfied.
