Irish for English is a Duolingo language course teaching Irish to speakers of English. It was built in the Incubator and exited Beta on January 16, 2015.

The course teaches Caighdeán Oifigiúil, or Standard Irish, which incorporates aspects of all three major dialects.[1] The course was originally set to use a text-to-speech engine for audio,[1] but as of April 2015 all course audio is recorded.[2]

The course was created to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Authors' notesEdit

It's official: the Irish course has begun. Lancet and I have been chosen to create Duolingo's Irish course and we both look forward to the long road ahead. Fáilte!...
