You said you wanted to do one lesson a week, and you're already done with the lesson?

Yeah. I managed to get everything for the week done by Monday (except for Sumerian, where I don't think we've fully decided what exactly to do yet :P).

Well, actually, I just did it because I could, but it might also help me do my TAC languages also instead of just being stuck in the German forum forever. :P Also, I kind of suspected I'd be getting sick, and I am indeed running a bit of a (slowly progressing) fever now. It hasn't gotten too bad yet, though.

No one said anything about you having to play alone, a chara!

You forgot to translate the second part of sentence #5 is exercise #10: Táid istigh sa tigh.

Also, in sentence #5 in the next exercise, it says "in the yard," not in the garden. :idea:

Finally, we both missed/omitted the same word in #7: Tá na garsúin thall ansan sa pháirc.

:shock: I guess I did. Oops!

I realized that after translating it and decided to keep it. Same difference, right? :P

Ready for Lesson 5? :D

Not until you fix your mistakes, class clown! :hmpf:

Okay, more honestly, I should keep track of everything I just agreed to do in all the other groups first. :P

EDIT: Should work out.

So, me and Vijay are thinking of starting this group back up. And we intend to go back through Colloquial Irish, and provided we actually make it through it, I at least intend to follow it up with Learning Irish by Ó Siadhail.

Yes, I've put my Munster studies on hold for now, in favor of a more conversational approach to learning Irish. I intend to still learn the Munster dialect after at least getting my foot in the door with some Connacht.

Anyway, does anyone want to go through Colloquial Irish with us? kevin?

Please note that we're going for a very slow pace (one lesson either every week or every other week) and are thinking of making our first assignment a review of the chapters we've already gone through in this group.

Yes, thank you for adding that.

I'll also note that we probably won't review all of the lessons at once. I'm not saying one lesson a week/bi-week, but not all 5 at once.

Unless Vijay wants to kill me. :P

Well, killing you seemed like a tempting plan, but with that thrown out the window...:lol:

How about the first assignment being a review of the audio and corresponding text for the first two lessons?

EDIT: Also, if we're going that slowly, we should probably go even more slowly with the newer lessons since we haven't done the exercises for them yet.

Sure, that sounds good to me. As for weekly or bi-weekly, how about (officially starting our week tomorrow), let's check in later and see how much time we need. Say, Thursday or Friday?

I don't have Colloquial Irish but I might hop on board once you get to Learning Irish. The review would do me good.

I'm sure księżycowy would be willing to share it with you if you're interested! (I would do this myself, but I only have access to it because of him, really. The audio of course is already available online for free from Routledge itself: https://www.routledgetextbooks.com/text ... /irish.php).
