    Love The Lyrical Sound Of It

    This was something my sweetie and I both wanted to do. Looks like now I'm going to do it solo. But it will be a challenge. Wondering if my language and learning skills are up to the task. Oh well... it'll be fun.

    Gaeilge Is A Beautiful Language

    I have always loved Irish folklore, and music. That inspired me to learn the language. Funny thing it, I'm Malaysian XD Is there anyone who can teach me the language?

    I Once Borrowed a Cd Lauguage Set From the Library

    and learned some basic conversational phrases. But I really need to see the written Gaelic words to pronounce them correctly. My pronunciation was surprisingly inaccurate. Anyway, I like the language. It's like speaking a curious combination of Latin, French and Norse. No...
