'Thomas makes it simple' - Sunday Times

Looking for a convenient language course that fits your lifestyle and gets you speaking a new language in a matter of hours? The acclaimed audio-led Michel Thomas Method, endorsed by celebrities, executives and learners worldwide, will deliver the results you want.

Foundation Irish is about getting Irish under your skin instantly, getting you to speak fluently, with all the punch and vigour of a native speaker, as soon as your first few words.

How does it work?
During the course, you will join Michel Thomas Method teachers Patricia MacEoin and Eilis Ni Dhuill and two students in a live lesson, learning from both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. You, as the learner, become the third student and participate actively in the class. Within the very first hour you will be able to construct simple phrases by listening and thinking out answers for yourself without the pressure of writing or memorizing. You learn through your own language, so there's no stress, and no anxiety. You'll stick with it because you'll love it.

Why is the method so successful?
The Michel Thomas Method was perfected over 50 years by celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. This unique method works with your brain and draws on the principles of instructional psychology. Knowledge is structured and organised so that you assimilate the language easily and don't forget it. The method breaks down the language into building blocks that are introduced sequentially in such a way that you create your response and move on to ever-more-complex sentences. There is no need to stop for homework, additional exercises or vocabulary memorization, so you progress rapidly.

What's in the Course?
Foundation Irish with the Michel Thomas Method includes up to 8 hours of audio on CD. You will learn at your own pace, pausing and repeating where necessary, and complete the course in about 20-30 hours. *Note that the first hour of this course is the same as the Start Irish 'taster' course.

Learn anywhere
Don't be tied to chunky books or your computer, Michel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move.
