    "Very Effective, Too Short"

    Having studied the Irish language in a number of formats, I can't deny the effectiveness of the Pimsleur method for learning SPEECH. The approach is very logical, and the material is useful for the casual cultural tourist or the beginner. Unfortunately, Pimsleur has only 10 lessons of Irish, enough to get you started, but little enough to leaving you hanging after lesson #10. Come on, Pimsleur... if you can do 30 lessons of Russian, surely you can do as much for Irish.

    "It works!"
    What did you love best about Irish Phase 1, Unit 01-05?

    The Irish language is not used in the United States and the basis of the language has no apparent roots in the English language. This book, however, makes it very easy to remember basic words and phrases in the language, even if there's no reference to it in your life. Even my 4 year old has begun to pick up some of the words as we listen to it in the car.I really like how it is presented and would feel rather comfortable using it to not make a fool of myself in the appropriate venue.The last time I listened to it was nearly a month ago, but even now, I could give you a couple words and phrases with ease.


    If you’ve listened to books by Pimsleur before, how does this one compare?

    Haven't yet, but will certainly look into others.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Its a language learning book and not story based.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Its best utilized in about a half an hour sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Great for 30 minute car rides here and there. Pass the time and pick up a language!

    "You Can Do it Too!"
    What made the experience of listening to Irish Phase 1, Unit 01-05 the most enjoyable?

    At first listen, it sounds like a difficult language, but the narrator breaks up the words until they are possible for anyone to say.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    He was understandable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Speak like a song.
