The 'shelom' is meant to be at the beginning of the sentence but it's ridiculously difficult to mix left-to-right scripts with right-to-left :[

With the s/he said thing, I meant it just sounded like idle gossip and of no interest. I'm barely interested in what's going on in my own life :Þ

Yeah, sorry. I plumped for Yiddish due to personal preference. I know that doesn't make as much sense in an Israeli context.

Reading Teanglann, this should not be impossible

Personally I would have "ach" to be used together with "amháin" or "níl" for a clear interpretation of "except".

Probable answer to question is, that course developers have not exhausted all possible alternatives.
