You start with the basics: Pronunciation > Basic greetings > Starting conversation > Continuing conversations etc. This goes on throughout the book until you have a good grasp of the language.
By the end of the book, if followed thouroughly, you should be able to talk about everyday things with ease and handle day to day situations.
I would highly recomend buying the 'Teach Yourself Gaelic Dictionary' to aid with verbs and what not.
I found that within the first week of studying and listening i was able to make decent sized conversations asking how folk were, where they lived, where they worked, where they were going and including basic weather statements...all from the first 2 units :)
Have fun learning a wonderful language if you buy this book. You won't be disappointed.
The CD is essential to learn the inconsistent pronunciation.
The only downside is the irritating track 1 reading the Ts and Cs and copyright info with a broad Bronx accent - completely inappropriate.
