Irish Practice

Dia daoibh!

So, I'm a level 6 Irish learner and I have completed Basics 1, 2, and finished Phrases on Duolingo. I was wondering if someone could help me practice my Irish by giving me simple(ish) English sentences or even short passages so I can translate it to Irish. Or maybe there is a site that offers sentences for translation? I don't know. I'd appreciate it though. =D

Go raibh maith agaibh!

Dia duit. I would simply suggest you use the practice lessons Duolingo provides. The practice will center on words or phrases you have already learned, and you can do as many of them as you like.

    I agree with Anson. Use the "strengthen skills" for the simple sentences. It focuses on the words you have been taught. It also gives you new sentences that you didn't learn in the lessons, but still within the words you know.

    Ta fáite romhat.


    I agree that using Duolingo is a really good resource. However, if you're looking for ways to get more Irish into your daily life, I found that tweeting as Gaeilge once a week (or however often you'd like) can be helpful. It forces you to look up vocabulary words you don't know and still get your point across.

    I don't know your social media situation, but you could (in theory) make a separate account, follow some Gaeilgeoirs -- search the #gaeilge tag -- and exercise the Irish part of your brain that way.


    Go raibh maith agat. =) I'll definitely try that.
