#Irish is a living language, but @duolingo hasn't added the 💡feature for teaching concepts like it has for other language programs that it offers (yet..).

Don't sweat it though, there is a 3rd party page that is structured to fill in the gaps. 😎

➡️ ⬅️
If you are struggling to remember a word that you were taught in a previous #Irish lesson, or you just want to explore the words that you will learn in future lessons, @duolingo also has a searchable dictionary. 🙂…

Ok #IrishTwitter - I met ~a dozen folks in the past 6mos. who want to learn either Irish or Gaelic or both. I've told them I'll pass along what resources I'm aware of, as they all said they weren't finding things, and I've found a good bit - but I bet you know of more #Gaeilge
So please help this Gael-Mheiriceánach spread an focal maith & add what you know. Extra 💕 if you share resources that can be used offline/w/o a smartphone & are free. Everything below has at least a free version, if not all content free.

I set up Memes na Gaeilge ( in 2012.
Thaitin sé thar barr liom le roinnt blianta... but little by little it went down my list of priorities. There are loooaddds of other Gaeilge memes accounts now so it's all G. @memesnag
I did like how it was a lárleathanach do mhéimeanna Gaeilge áfach... since I love Irish (especially the Irish that living people use and speak) there aren't many méimeanna Gaeilge that escape my beady eye, and I liked with the Memes na Gaeilge page that they'd be in one place.
I'm going to post some of my favourite memes now!

A bilingual sign tells you more than just where you need to go.

It tells you a country has more than one native language.

It tells you how the names for places are connected, or sometimes not, between languages.

It teaches you what others call that place in their language.
It demonstrates that the country values linguistic diversity and equality between linguistic communities.

It may tell you that you are entering a place whether another language is more predominent.
It tells you that you may expect to hear another language or experience another culture upon arrival.

It may tell you that folk spoke a now minoritised language in a place before the dominant majority language.

Right, so tomorrow is International Mother Language Day, and partially because I wont be at @LonGaeilge to waffle on about stuff in Irish, I'll waffle a bit about #IMLD here in English
I've no idea where this waffle will go, I'm just doing to lash into it without any direction in mind. #IMLD started in Bangladesh. Bangla is a language that is of central importance to #IMLD and to me personally.
If it wasn't for #Bangla, I know for certain that my #Gaeilge would not be what it is. It was when I started to learn Bangla that I also started going back to learning Irish.
