Irish Language Forums Discussion:     Dialects

That I know of, there are three main dialects in the Irish Language: Ulster, Connacht, and Munster.

The Pimsleur approach is Munster.

The class I will be attending and the course that I have purchased is Ulster. So I will be in the future concentrating on this dialect.

With some of the Munster already in me, I am hoping I can unlearn and be ready to relearn in the Ulster dialect. Whew!!

As you master one dialect, and then become exposed to others, you are, after a while of listening, able to make a connection and understand the others... Kind of like a New Yorker being exposed to Southern first they are difficult to understand but as you're around it, it becomes understandable. so all is not lost no matter what dialect you choose to study.
