BBC Gaeilge (Irish)

<p>
The BBC website offers free Irish lessons. I am only just beginning to familiarize myself with the site, but I believe there are three levels available--<a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/irish/articles/view/625/english/">Level 1</a>, <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/irish/articles/view/626/english/">Level 2</a>, and <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/irish/articles/view/1281/english/">Level 3</a>.</p>
<p>
I tried the first lesson from Level 1 and liked it! You get text and audio, which is a great combination, since Irish words look and sound like nothing I've ever studied before.</p>
<p>
The lesson I did was four and a half minutes long, so it did not involve a big time commitment, and the guy who narrated the lesson had a nice voice and welcoming manner. The pacing of the material was perfect for me.</p>
<p>
The site is available in both <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/irish/english/">English</a> and <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/irish/gaeilge/">Irish</a> versions and includes tons of other material in Irish (print, audio, and video).&nbsp;</p>
<p>
There are even&nbsp;<a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/irish/fios/english/">games</a> for kids!</p>
