Good Introduction to Irish

Any additional comments?

First 15:50 minutes tell a little bit about the author and how the course works and what you will get out of it. After that, it begins to teach you a few words and phrases in Irish. :) Definitely worth checking out!

No Irish; a 45-minute ad;

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This has ZERO material in Irish and is largely a promotional piece.

What was most disappointing about Pimsleur’s story?

It didn't match the title.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

No.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Any additional comments?

When titles are false, please indicate it somewhere, somehow.

Don’t bother

Horrible! Don’t bother your time or money. Following the App duelingo much easier to understand- first 30 min of this is spent explaining the company-
