Description

Colloquial Irish 2 is the ideal way to refresh your knowledge of the language and to extend your skills from the beginner level to advanced beginner.

Structured to give you the opportunity to listen to and read plenty of modern, everyday Irish, Colloquial Irish 2 builds on the skills acquired in Colloquial Irish by expanding vocabulary, increasing awareness of grammar rules, and building spoken fluency while dealing with many of the same communicative themes. The popular Cois Fharraige dialect from West Galway continues to be the main focus of the book.

With dialogues, vocabulary, grammatical explanations, and cultural points based around communicative themes, Colloquial Irish 2 provides everything the advanced beginner needs to take their language skills to the next level. Free sound files, recorded by native speakers of the dialect, are available at www.routledge.com/cw/colloquials.
