How nice of you!!!! Do we get a gold star if we do well in our homework?? :lol:

On a more serious note- I think a big round of applause is due for mise for doing this for us all and being so generous with her time-
*claps loudly*
thanks mise!! :wink:

Well, I've had some formal teaching in Donegal, a long time ago. I also had a few weeks worth of lessons with a Dublin man, but he's since gone back to Ireland :cry: I have a heafty pile of books and papers, but I never get around to looking at them (Kevin, if you read this, I'm sorry!!!) so this is great - I need something to focus on!

I think this is a good idea. :) I've been trying to learn Gaelic myself, but it's pretty hard..I don't know how much I can contribute, but I'd like to get the mails. :) Count me in.

Well, I did have one of those "Irish Lessons on CD-ROM" kits. It turned out to be defective - wouldn't play. All I could do was wear the disk on my head for a CD-ROM Hat. :wink:

I don't mind doing some 'teaching', using my exercise books or something as a basis - but it'll have to wait until I can get my exam out of the way :shock:

lol I never thought of that. Well I suppose there are plenty of people that ll stay at home as for the ones going ... they can do their homework together (and no cheating by asking a native speaker to do it for you!)
