GaeilgeGirl Posted September 18, 2016 Report Share Posted September 18, 2016 Learning a language from a book, a class, or an app is one thing, but it's a whole other challenge to talk to someone who grew up speaking that language. I would love to go to Ireland to practice my Gaeilge, but I feel really intimidated to try it on a native speaker. I've spoken to a few Irish speakers I've met, but I'm always so embarrassed about my skills. Do you think that, in order to really master a language, you should spend some time in the country or region where the language is spoken? Do you think it's important to get to know the culture behind a language firsthand? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
