i have voted for both irish and welsh! ive been reading/watching videos about the celtic languages lately and ive heard that irish kids have to learn it in school (or have their entire schooling be in irish) but they never really learn to speak it and hate it! so i think as is the case with most foreign languages kids in ireland would benefit from having something like lingq in which they can just listen and read things they are interested in and it would actually do more to revitalize the language than the current system is doing now. theres potential here.
Osaieh, your right! Some schools are Gaelic schools which teach everything through Irish. But even in the regular schools you must study Irish for 8 or so years. Kids in general hate it, but this is mainly because school here is public and children are coerced and forced into school. Force a human to do anything and they will have a negative reaction to it. I haven't used it for about 10 years so I'd need to do a refresher on it, but since it would be voluntary I'd glady do it. Children could benefit greatly from Lingq and I've recommeded it to some of my cousins stuck in the school prision system.
