UPDATE: I successfully completed my learn Irish mission by becoming fluent in 9 months. I ended my mission with an amazing trip to the Irish Gaeltacht.
No post today. Just a video of my Irish language progress.
I’ve been a bit quiet here the last week or so. Things have been really hectic with my work and I’m moving house at the moment, but hopefully I’ll start to get more time to devote to improving and maintaining this site in the coming weeks.
It’s great to see so many people regularly checking back here! Thanks to those of you who subscribed to the RSS feed or bookmarked this site to keep coming back.
I announced my intention to learn Irish from absolutely no prior knowledge on December 15th 2011 (although thanks to Christmas and work the first month was quite slow and unproductive).
This video shows roughly where I’m at now (speaking ability).
As I said before, this is the slowest progress I’ve ever made and I’ve only had three short conversations with other people so far so I’m definitely in need of more practice as you can see.
