A Review from Amy's Intro to the Irish Language Course:

"I was thrilled to catch the live class for Introduction to the Irish Language taught by Amy Coe. There was so much quality language instruction packed into one course I know I'll be coming back to it over and over. Múinteoir answered all my most pressing questions about word forms and grammar, and immersed us in bi-lingual vocabulary. It was so engaging to learn this way. I think the course is perfect for people who may have some understanding of sentence structure, grammar, and verb forms in other languages, and are interested in how it works in Gaeilge. The section on pagan vocabulary is fantastic - words and phrases we can start to use right away. I also truly appreciate the bonus resources - a whole extra course on the history of the Irish language! A wide variety of free and paid resources to learn more on specific sections! 79 pages of class notes in addition to the slides! There is *so much* here for the price."
