I read some of the reviews for other Beginners books, and choose this one as it had previous good reviews.
The links to the internet also for the lessons are excellent, I would have no hesitation in recommending this for anyone who wants to learn basics, and is great for all ages.

My 7 year old really enjoys this. He's very keen to learn and the fact that it comes with a CD means he's not pestering me constantly about pronunciation. Illustrations make it more enjoyable.

We decided to learn a few phrases of our native language so bought this book. It looked childlike which appealed to our level of expectation. Inside there are no phonetics and the layout of the book it hard to understand. Can't see us using it and we have already been getting phrases off the internet which are free and have the phonetics available. Disappointing.

Brilliant for sorting out the pronunciation of Gaelic ! We're all different, but this book and CD is helpful if you listen many times to the CD a section at a time, then sit and study the two-page layout accompanying each segment on occasions to reinforce the spelling of the words in your memory. Progressing through, the grammar is introduced clearly, but it is vital to get each section totally under your belt before moving on. This slim book is deceptive in that a contains a fair amount of knowlege.

Brilliant! Well put together and very useful as a revision tool to complement my beginners class, although the artwork is quite childish.
I love the looks I get from fellow commuters when I pull it out on the train :-)

At the end of this book you still know very little Irish. I went through the lot and am still struggling to help my 9 and 10 year old with their homework. There are quite a few little mistakes in this book as well, like forgotten fada's. If you're trying to learn the right spelling, this isn't helpful either.

It's my native language and i thought it was important to try and learn a little of bit of it, to help keep the Irish language alive. It's useful for anyone wanting to learn some basic sentences and grammar. I would definitely recommend to anyone with any interest in the language and the culture of Ireland.

This is an easy,fun way to start learning Irish.The course avoids unnecessary grammatical complications and,by emulating real-life everyday situations, encourages the student to speak Irish from the very first lesson. Usborne is a market leader in this area, so if you want to learn Irish, start here
