1 on 1 Skype Irish lessons. Learn to speak with confidence. *Each Skype Irish lesson lasts for 45 minutes A great value for those who plan to study Irish with me on a more regular basis.
The advantage of buying a Irish language package is that you commit yourself to continue learning. All students may start the program at the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Level. No prior knowledge of Irish is required. Lesson is led by a Native Irish Speaker from Connemara. The program concentrates on conversation, reading, grammer, listening and translation.
The aim is for the student to acquire communicative competence so that she/he can understand, express her/himself and interact appropriately in various real-life situations. In order to achieve this we shall work on the following aspects:
Developing listening skills up to the level of being able to understand Irish spoken at medium speed. Developing oral communication, with special emphasis on pronunciation and fluency. Developing reading comprehension. Grammar structures and the most common words and phrases in Irish. Developing useful and functional vocabulary. During lessons, I place a greater emphasis on communication as opposed to correction. Knowledge of grammar is essential for effective communication but it does not form the center-point of the lessons and is taught as it naturally occurs in communicative activities rather than out of context.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐ “Working with Paraic has given me the structure and the accountability that I was lacking, and has proven to be very enjoyable to boot. As a teacher myself, I have high standards, but Paraic is very good at what he does. He’s a wonderful ambassador for the Irish language and his love for it and for the land and people of Connemara are evident. I really look forward to my lessons, and finish them with a sense of accomplishment and motivation to improve. I recommend Paraic very highly! Ann from USA
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐ “Paraic is a fantastic teacher. He helps you along with the greatest of patience. He is also a natural conversationalist. You won’t have any trouble finding interesting things to talk about. It’s great to speak with a person who grew up with Irish in his blood. Bhain mé taitneamh as na ceachtanna. Agus beidh mé ar ais go luath le cúnamh Dé. “ Cormac from Ireland
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐ “These Skype sessions have been a very positive experience for me, something I look forward to every week. Highly, highly recommended to anyone, like me, who has tried and failed to learn Irish in the past. This is a whole new, fresh and positive approach to learning our beautiful language. Go raibh mile maith agat Paraic, as na ceachtanna iontacha seo.” Frank from USA
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐ “I was able to have a casual conversation both on some standard easier topics like work, and some more complex topics like political correctness and life in the 19th century. I also liked the way Paraic linked the language with culture, history and some anthropological observations, thus teaching me not only Irish but the mentality of the people of his native Connemara.” Olga from Ireland
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐ “My twin boys Just completed 10 weeks of conversational Irish with Paraic. Their Irish has improved immensely in such a short period. As I sitting with them during the conversations, I too gained. Paraic tailored the sessions well to suit the short attention span of a typical 9 year old. I would highly recommend Paraic for anyone of any age who wants to learn Irish from scratch or brush up on the language. I see great potential in my boy’s ability and I am delighted with Paraic’s tips on how to to keep it up” Aoife from Ireland
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐ “I have noticed since starting lessons with Paraic my recall for Irish comes a lot easier and Irish is coming off the tongue more quickly. Paraic also writes down what he teaches you which is great as you can go back over the conversation if you need to remember something. Highly recommend the lessons and if I was fluent already in Irish I’d still catch up with Paraic for a chat (as Gaeilge).” Mark from Ireland
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐ “Since starting lessons with Paraic, he has helped me to relax and gradually gain confidence with both speaking and listening. He focuses on the subjects that are relevant and important to me and helps me to obtain the vocabulary needed to discuss them. He is well-read and able to discuss a wide variety of subjects. In addition, since my primary interest is in the Connemara dialect, it is an added bonus that Paraic was raised in Connemara through Irish and is able to pass on his knowledge of the area as well as the language, though it is clear that his knowledge extends well beyond that region.” Anthony from USA
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I have been studying Irish off and on for about 10 years. After just 10 sessions with Paraic my comprehension of the language has improved dramatically.” Ben from USA

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I really appreciate Paraic’s kindness and reassurance, as well as his strategy of just getting me talking before ironing out the mistakes. Returning to learning Irish with Paraic is fun and incredibly rewarding.” Siobhán from Ireland
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Paraic will bring you through conversations on topics related to politics, current affairs, family, friends, the latest news bulletin, religion, it really doesn’t matter, the only thing that matters is that it matters to you, and once it matters to you, it matters to Paraic. By the end of a class, you realize that you have discussed a complex topic through Irish, and wonder wow, how did that happen?” Michael from Ireland
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I’d almost given up on ever learning Irish properly but I’m pleased I didn’t. After about five months of tuition from Paraic I’m very happy with my progress and will be continuing with the lessons to build on this. He is an inspirational teacher of this wonderful language—so much so that each week I find myself devoting more and more time to it!” Ruth from UK
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “After 15 sessions, I am now able to have conversations with Paraic in Irish about daily events and topics I enjoy. He is encouraging, friendly and engaging. Paraic is also very professional. Our lessons are fun, easy and always interesting. I look forward to them every week.” Beth from USA
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Paraic cares about helping you practice your speaking skills through learning idioms and colloquialisms that you couldn’t get from a grammar book.
