Corinne Moore, February 16, 2015 (view all comments by Corinne Moore)
It's useable, but not fantastic. I think the presentation of grammar is about as readable as you can get -- it's as readable as I've gotten with Irish, anyway -- and the way that lessons progress makes sense. The audio, however, is surprisingly hard to use. It doesn't give you enough time after words and sentences to repeat them, and I found the numbering + mapping to lessons somewhat confusing. I'd be curious if anyone else has this problem or if it's just me.
