I really want to carry on posting Irish blogs and was surprised to see how many people enjoyed my last one hihi☘🙈 Irish really isn’t the hardest to learn, so learning the basics should be enjoyable💚

If you want to read the first basics, it’s in the ‘Ireland’ blogging section☘ 

Last week you already learned greetings and some basic questions! Today I want to teach you the basics of introducing yourself and important key words!! Let’s start🤗
