No, tá Gaeilge na hÉireann agam agus roinnt Ghaeilge na hAlban. Beagán Manannaise ach cleachtadh uaim! I went to the Isle of Man this past summer and had a one-day workshop there, and a visit to the Manx-medium school.
General interest in Celtic languages. Irish and Scottish roots, but no Manx that I know of. Níl a fhios agam cé chomh minic is a bheinn ábalta dul go hAlexandria le haghaidh cruinnithe ach dá mbeadh rud mar lá nó leathlá Manannaise ann lá éigin, bheadh sé sin go hiontach.

Morning on a weekend works. But, am I ready for this? IDK any of the tense changes. Are you still doing the book course that Amanda gallant's taking? Also have to check our budget to make sure that I can stay for the whole course
Will a new Advanced Beginner Group be starting up--IDK whether I could just hop in. Also, Amana wanted to know whether an Complete Beginner Group was starting up. She lives in Philly now, so she could also possibly attend a class you're teaching at a local, venue. She mentioned that she'd e-maild you and that you hadn't gotten back to her.

Hi Roisin:My boys are playing session at The Plough and The Stars in Philly tomorrow from 5-9, so I won't be online. I'll wait on the lessons until the advanced beginners start a new session.
Dia duit Roisin. Should I wait till the next session of classes to move to move to advanced beginners?
That "madadh" will hunt! Go raibh maith agat!
