About OIDE
OIDE focuses on functional, everyday Gaeilge as used by native speakers in Connemara.
Native speaker audio material is used to demonstrate and enhance pronunciation. The play/record/playback process allows learners to listen as many times as they need to internalise the sounds, and then practice as often as necessary to hone pronunciation skills.
The content is kept relevant with emphasis is on the fundamentals of informal, social interaction. The simple Q and A format underscores the conversational approach with learning goals further supported by interactive exercises that use the target materials in context.
Pronunciation along with the rhythm and intonation of natural speech are overlooked in the school curriculum. However, these are not merely “bonus skills” but are in fact the very building blocks of everyday speech.

Using OIDE
Set yourself up with your headphones and leave caution to the wind as you immerse yourself in the sounds, intonations and natural flow of the lesson audios. Play individual audios in “loop” mode and repeat them aloud and in character as they play. Being mistrusting and fearful of your own voice speaking Gaeilge is the biggest obstacle to progress. Confidence, is the most important attribute in language learning and is easily nurtured as it only requires practice.
Above all else, adopt a proactive approach to building confidence and recognise that speaking, practising aloud, honing pronunciation and playing with the language is what makes all the difference.
Everybody’s pronunciation will differ, so don’t worry if your attempts don’t exactly match the original audio as everybody’s attempt will sound different. Once you are practising and attempting the audios “YOU CANNOT Be WRONG"
