I'm apparently a 'top 3%' Irish learner on Duolingo.

I couldn't tell you one fucking sentence and I've been at it for over a year.

Chead acu imeacht sa foc.

Trí lá ó shin, chuir mé ceist go #Gaeilgeoirí agus #Mastodaoine faoi an focail #Gaeilge mar 'toot'. Le 52% na vótaí, is 'tút' an buaiteoir soiléir.

ACH, thaispeáin @deantoir_ceardaiochta an focal 'séid(eadh)' dom!

Mar sin... tá sé an am mar babhta 2!

Cad is an focal CEART Gaeilge mar 'toot'?

The sentence to translate is "I use Irish every day" so I went with;

Úsáidim an Gaeilge gach lá

But the correct translation is "bainim úsáid as an nGaeilge gach lá"

My verb book says 'bainim' is I cut, or take off" >>> why is bainim used here? <<<

And >>>why am I taking Gaeilge as (out) every day?? <<<

Go raibh maith agat don cabhair

The vast majority of Irish here in work laugh when I say I am learning #Irish. There's a small group of us who have a Ciorcal Comhrá here, and I work with a #Gaeilgeoir but you want to bet if I pronounce something wrong, or get words in the wrong order every fucker in the office remembers how to speak Irish.

I'm learning Irish at the moment through Duolingo and their recent update has completely fucked it up for me.

Does anyone have a recommendation for beginner and intermediate Irish learning books?

Go raibh maith agat!

Are there any structured descriptions of how eclipsis etc work? I’ve always struggled with just remembering a long list of situations.

An bhfuil aon #Gaeilgeoir ar Mastodon? Ba mhaith liom mo Ghaeilge a úsáid ach táim an chéad duine i mo theaghlach le foghlaim. Ní labhraím go mhaith ach, is fearr liom Gaeilge briste ná Bearla cliste.

this is probably a stretch but are there any #irish speakers on here? #gaeilge #gaeilgeoir

(don't get your hopes too high, I'm still in the very early stages of learning lol)
