Adding Irish to Easy Languages (and maybe other sites)

There's this website/youtube channel called easy languages that seems to use immersion style learning to teach various languages. Unfortunately none of those languages are Irish, at least at the moment.

Maybe it was brought up already (when I searched discussion I didn't see it) but I know there are Irish native speakers here who always seem to be patient & eager to help out, so I was wondering if any of you guys were possibly willing/able to contribute to adding or possibly directly working on teaching Irish through it.

It would definitely be good place to learn it side-by-side with duolingo or after finishing the tree.

Here's the contact info on their site: http://www.easy-languages.org/contact/

I also saw something on a Livemocha discussion mentioning teaching Irish on the site, but never saw any progress on it. Don't know why that's the case but my guess is maybe they never really had contributors to start with. Maybe that it's worth checking out if you're really passionate about getting the langauge out there. The posts I see in the Irish sentences forums are always really helpful so it would be really nice to see that in more resources. GRMA

I don't know ,Jillian. Irish is easily the most difficult language I'm studying. Now maybe if they had a Hardlanguages.com site:)

Have some lingots from me for the great comment.

Even though I really like Irish I would definitely have to study it on hardlanguages.com. There's nothing easy about it for me ;)

I still find Irish a little difficult at times despite the advantage I have from years of exposure etc., it's definitely not easy and I can't even imagine how confusing it must be for a new learner. VSO languages really are something else!
