Speaking Irish / An Ghaeilge Bheo Leabhar agus DVD, by Siuán Ní Mhaonaigh agus Antain Mac Lochlainn, McGraw Hill 2008
ISBN: 0071475621

"'The package includes a DVD featuring unrehearsed interviews with more than 20 fluent Irish speakers, representing all three regional dialects. The interviews were filmed on location throughout Ireland, and feature speakers from Kerry, Donegal, Dublin and Galway. More than 45 interview segments are organised into twenty thematic sections, covering all aspects of contemporary Irish life, such as the environment, family, politics, entertainment, and cultural traditions.'

'The supporting book is attractively designed and includes a transcript of all the interviews on the DVD as well as notes on vocabulary, pronunciation, idioms and cultural issues. There are notes which focus on aspects of grammar which learners typically find difficult. Questions on each video section guide the learners in their comprehension of the interviews, and encourage oral and listening comprehension skills. An answer key and English translations of the interviews are provided at the back of the book. Classroom worksheets for use by teachers can be downloaded for free from mhprofessional.com. Teachers and learners alike will welcome a resource suited to the needs of those who wish to progress beyond beginner level. Speaking Irish / An Ghaeilge Bheo answers that need in an effective and appealingly contemporary way.'

'Tá DVD ann ar a bhfuil agallaimh le breis agus 20 cainteoir Gaeilge, gach duine acu ag caint go nádúrtha gan script ar bith. Cloisfidh tú cainteoirí breátha as Ciarraí, Dún na nGall, Gaillimh agus Baile Átha Cliath. Tá os cionn 45 agallamh ar fad ann, a chlúdaíonn fiche téama ar leith.'

'I measc na n-ábhar cainte tá an timpeallacht, an teaghlach, an pholaitíocht, siamsaíocht agus gnéithe de chultúr na hÉireann. Tá leabhar snasta ann ina bhfuil téacs na n-agallamh go léir, chomh maith le nótaí foclóra, foghraíochta agus cultúrtha. Gheofar treoir ann faoi phointí gramadaí a mbíonn deacrachtaí ag foghlaimeoirí leo.
Tá ceisteanna tuisceana ann chun cabhrú le foghlaimeoirí brí na n-agallamh a thuiscint agus snas a chur ar a gcuid cainte féin. I gcúl an leabhair atá na freagraí agus aistriúcháin Bhéarla ar na hagallaimh ar fad. Bainfidh múinteoirí an-leas as na bileoga saothair don seomra ranga is féidir a íoslódáil saor in aisce ó mhprofessional.com.'
