    I took classes in Gaeilge for a year (that's all I could afford ), it's not too difficult once you get past the pronunciation rules, though for some people understanding the grammar is no easy task. I'm by no means fluent, and sometimes I'll get things a little mixed up and speak "broken Irish" .
    But after the classes, I started studying the Ulaidh dialect, Gaeilic, independently through their songs. Definitely my fav out of all the dialects...unique, and very fluid-sounding.
    Every day I try to remind myself to learn more about the language, or to use it practically. You should be able to find a tutor (mine learned in Connemara), or you could visit a Gaeltacht for an immersive learning .
