All the words are in standard Irish but focus on Ulster Irish and the correlation between Ulster pronunciation and standard spelling. Obviously most of the games are applicable to all dialects and some to Ulster Irish only. The other two main dialects will follow.

Is cluiche fónaice é Fuaim-U a leanann clár do pháistí atá ag foghlaim na léitheoireachta agus an litrithe trí Ghaeilge. Tosaíonn Fuaim-U le focail bhunúsacha CGC agus leanann ar aghaidh go focail níos faide, focail ilsiollacha, focail le séimhiú agus le hurú, focail chaola agus leathana agus ansin, na féidearthachtaí litrithe atá ag na gutaí fada.
Tá na focail ar fad sa chaighdeán ach tá béim ar Ghaeilge Chúige Uladh agus an nasc idir fuaimniú Uladh agus an litriú sa chaighdeán. Ar ndóigh, baineann an chuid is mó de na cluichí le gach canúint agus baineann cuid acu le Gaeilge Chúige Uladh amháin. Beidh an dá mhórchanúint eile ar fáil amach anseo.
Tugtar buíochas ar leith do COGG (http://www.cogg.ie) as maoiniú a chur ar fáil don fheidhmchlár seo.

I know personally that Irish, isn't the easiest subject to learn in school.
That's is why I made Gaeilge Made Easy.
In the Classes section, the pupils of that year can look over the work they will be learning within that year.
In the Translator, there are over +250 words!
In the Settings, the user can personalize the app to make it more personal to them.
Learning to speak Gaeilge with confidence is all about practice - nothing else.
AbairLeat OIDE is being developed on a voluntary basis by Coláiste Lurgan and it’s aim is to support irish language learners before - during and after their cúrsa Gaeilge finishes.
OIDE focuses exclusively on spoken Gaeilge as used in everyday interaction and gets learners speaking relevant, practical Irish language dialogue from the get-go.
It sets out to help learners practice conversational Gaeilge while paying special attention to the main difficulties English speaking learners have with the major differences between the English language and Gaeilge.
OIDE is a cross platform app and can be accessed on all Apple, Android devices as well as PCs and Macs. This means that signed up members can access their own OIDE accounts from all tablets, smart phones as well as all desktops.
Working Towards Good Pronunciation:
The first step towards good pronunciation is to pay close attention to the sounds of the language.
Listening intently, repeating aloud and then critically comparing their own recording to native speaker audios is a high level engagement task with huge benefits for language learners.
The goal is to mimic as closely as possible the native speaker audio.
These listen / repeat / compare tasks should not be rushed and ideally should be subsequently revisited.
The play/ record/ playback process means that learners can listen to native pronunciation as many times as is needed to internalise the sounds and practice as many times as is necessary to hone pronunciation skills.
Working on pronunciation skills is a gradual and incremental process but the rewards for language learners are substantial. You will gradually find even the hardest words and phrases tripping of your tongue. It’s all about practice.
Joining An Online Class
OIDE allowa members to join an online class where they can receive feedback on their recorded work from their class teacher / manager.
