    Thank you for the corrections! 🙂 really appreciate it! I’ll periodically post some recordings after doing some work on sounds etc!

    As for the making recordings in the neighbouring Gaeltacht – well, the closest one too me is quite small and I’m not well-known around those villages however I am planning to go for a beer session next week or the following so if I have enough to drink and pluck up the courage, I might just ask to make a recording with somebody! :))

    So maybe no news is good news? So I’ve uploaded my first recording and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    I’d like to know how the accent sounds? (pronunciation, accent etc is very important to me) are there mistakes which make it non-comprehensible or am I completely wrong on some sounds etc? Obviously, it is highly unlikely to be perfect as I’m a new learner but it’d be good for any kind of feedback whatsoever – but please be kind lol 🙂 I didn’t do Irish at school and have only been properly learning for a few weeks!

    The recording is: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1sHPkitJRSG
    Thanks in advance!

    The sentences should be:

    Tagann Máire ón Spáinn

    As an nGearmáin mise

    An labhraíonn tú gaelige?

    Labhraím beagán gaelige

    Táim i mo chónaí i mBÁC

    Tá sé fuar inniu

    Hello there from not-so-sunny Ireland!

    I am curious as to what is the general overview of Irish in Japan (if any at all?)? The reason I ask is that recently I was in An Siopa Leabhar in Dublin and chatting with the girl who works there, she said that recently they had had quite a few Japanese tourists in looking for learning materials! 🙂

    As for online resources I would argue that there are quite a few good online resources however the websites usually are not decorated very well but a few which spring to mind are: – a fantastic resource for conjugating verbs

    http://www.nualeargais.ie/gnag/gram.htm – a decent grammar resource especially for beginners and intermediate learners

    http://www.abair.tcd.ie/ – an excellent tool for practising and listening to pronunciation. Of course, it is not always accurate and is computer generated based on a man’s voice/accent/intonation etc from the Meath Gaeltacht and another from Gweedore. I’d say that Meath one(Conamara) is of a higher quality and seems to be more clear but that might just be a personal opinion!

    Anyway, my apologies if these have already been recommended and good luck in learning! 🙂
