My son has to translate an irish paragrph into english by tomorrow and even I tried to translate it. It is hard. Tried used online dictonaries and our own but they don´t have some of the words and some words have different meanings to them. This is for 5th class. Can anyone help?

Sorry should have said my one comes with a CD so he hears the Irish and then practise. I´m using myself for Irish beginners and finding it very good especially the CD. Can get you the one without CD but I personally prefer CD.

hope your have sorted it by now. surley the teacher should have given him a help with it or even a book that has english/irish spellings to help him/her out, i really think it is unfair for a child to do this they will be doing all this in secondary school i know they have to be able to do a bit of translating before they go to secondary school but in primary they should just learn the basics

No not really. I am doing some of the translating for him even though I am finding it hard also. He does know a few words. He also has an iris english dictonary but even I find it a bit confusing. So I am making my own which I will give him. Why can´t irish be simple like spanish?
