Sally completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.
I spent about 3 hours a week, but would have needed much more to really learn the beginnings of the Irish language. This is a good introductory language class giving information on grammar and vocabulary.

There was minimal information on Irish culture. The class is the beginning of a series.

For students with real motivation to learn the language this is a good beginning.
