Is Mise Stephen, I Just joined the board I live in england and just started irish (self taught via the net) Am trying to learn more Irish more so Irish pronunciation I can’t find a teacher local to me to get lessons, i think this is the best way forward.
I don’t know if there any specific pronunciation courses out there and I fear that some of them may be from L2 speakers who generally have poor pronunciation.
The best (and cheapest) way is by listening to Raidió na Gaeltachta where you will hear native speakers. You can
listen live via the website as well to as to podcasts of the various programmes. Don’t worry if you don’t understand everything; the important thing is that you get an idea of the basic sounds of Irish.
There are now a number of texts with accompanying CDs but be sure to pick a text being read by a native Gaeltacht speaker if you want to master the pronunciation properly.
There are other texts such as The Irish of West Muskerry but these are probably too techical if you’re just starting out.
