Their mission is quite simple: to (very brief) lessons on grammar, vocab and conversation which all contain both written explanations and audio recordings.
In terms of the difficulty level it does begin with content aimed at the absolute beginner (how to say ) and then works up to an upper elementary level with slightly more advanced features of grammar.
The victims reported collective losses of .4 million, which is likely only a fraction of the actual losses since many victims are too embarrassed to file a report, the FBI said.
About 70% of the victims were female; more than half were women 40 years or older.
Despite my initial hesitation with the product due to it being partly run by a non-native, it occurred to me that the great clarity offered by Bitesize is largely due to Sasa’s learner perspective and input.
Like the rest of us adult learners of Irish, I’m sure she’s experienced the same challenging aspects of the language and all the poor explanations offered by so many other products, so it’s great to see that Bitesize employs her experience by explaining everything so well for the low-level learner.
🙂 After spending 3 intense weeks on the other side of the planet immersed in a language that I’ve been devoting myself to over the last 8 months, I’m back home in Australia.

One of the new friends I made on the course from Moscow travels to the school each year and has a really impressive level of fluency.
In the two weeks I was there I not only met loads of people from all over Ireland learning the language but also people from the UK, America, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Italy, Russia, Bulgaria and even Japan.
It blew my mind to see so much interest in the Irish language in some of the most unlikely parts of the world.
