Reviews - What do customers think about Irish (Language 30)?

A little slow going, but if patient a good start. There are better, Ive heard but I started with this one. It's OK. I've ordered another and will keep you posted - DIADUIT!!!
Good and bad, depending on your purpose  Jun 30, 2008
I bought this while I was on a trip because I knew I was going to have a five hour drive home, all alone. That meant I could listen to language audio without anyone to complain. I enjoyed having an opportunity to try out a dialect I am less familiar with and to try out the Pimsleur method, which is really great for me because I learn best by hearing and speaking. I've previously used Irish On Your Own, Learning Irish, and Buntus Cainte to varying degrees, so I had the advantage of some background and some knowledge about dialectal differences right off the bat.

If you are looking to really learn Irish, I'd have to point you in the direction of something more like _Learning Irish_ or _Irish On Your Own_. If you're interested in the Munster dialect and you are just messing around with the language for fun and don't really need to know how to read or write it, this will be fine.
This thing sucks  Jun 13, 2008
We bought this based on other reviews.... it is a waste of money. It teaches you a bunch of crap you don't need to know. Not that some of the things wouldn't be useful later if you want to be truely fluent in Irish, but in the first CD, why are you teaching someone how to say "God Bless the Work"???? Like that's going to come up in conversation? These cd's really suck. I don't know why they put so much "useless" information/sentences/words in there, and stayed away from basic speech so much. This thing is just a mess. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone! It is a total waste of money! BLAH!
Quick & Simple Irish needs a book!  Apr 2, 2008
My problem with this is that I am a visual learner and I really would have been helped by some accompanying written material. I have absolutely NO background in Irish so this was very confusing. (I do have a slight knowledge of French and found the Pimsleur French just fine.) So, for me, this was neither quick nor simple. I'm going to try a different system, something with a book!
Good conversation practice  Mar 29, 2008
I used the Pimsleur course after more than 3 years of studying Irish by other methods. I found it excellent. Since I am a visually oriented learner, I can sympathize with those who are frustrated at not having printed text to relate to the sounds they are hearing and, even worse, are knocked for a loop when they finally DO see the spelling. Because the spelling of Irish is so dissimilar to English, I recommend that Pimsleur be used after the learner has had 6 months or a year of instruction in reading, writing and speaking the language. No matter whether one's introduction has used the Ulster, Connaught or caighdeán (standard -- which has many echos of Munster) pronunciation, the Pimsleur pronunciation will now be recognizable in the mind's eye.
