    Comments about Irish Phase 1, Units 1-10:

    I was concerned at first about not having any written language to deal with, but once I got started, I loved it. Irish spelling is so complex, and I think it will help to get comfortable with the spoken language before I tackle reading and writing. My favorite thing about this course is that, because it's all audio, I can do it while I'm washing dishes, folding laundry, etc. I'm a single mom, full time student, very busy, and this was easy to fit into my schedule. It's also in very manageable, short lessons.

    Comments about Irish, Compact:

    I have gone over this unit a few times and love it. I have been to Ireland a few times and it is so wonderful to be able to speak to the people in their native tongue!! really enjoy this CD, although I wish there was more to practice with.

    Excellent Program -10 lessons to little

        Comments about Irish Phase 1, Units 1-10:

        I have done 4 languages (full 90 lessons) and find it the very best way to learn a language. Irish is by nature extremely difficult to learn but Pimsleur's approach is far above anything out there. However only 10 lessons are available and this is woefully inadequate. There is nothing else out there beyond the 10 Pimsleur lessons that are worth the trouble. So Pimsleur, please get busy. Even if is a low volume seller, you do have an ethical responsibility to continue this superior program.

          Comments about Irish, Compact:

          I wish there were more lessons, more levels of learning. I would like to continue the learning even of simple thinks such as the days of the week, money values, clothing, etc. It is not always an option to find a real Irish person in the community. I listen to the CDs on the way to work and have someone to talk to with repeating the conversation.

          Comments about Irish Phase 1, Units 1-10:

          Even though I used my particular product as a refresher, this method works really well, and has the least impact on a busy schedule. Unforunately, 10 lessons are all that is available for my particular choice. It got me back on track with pronounciation and the basics within a month, however. Very effective.
