VIDEO: Irish Language (Gaeilge) 1

For anyone who has either been to a WAYK workshop, language night, or mastered the WAYK tutorial, you can copy-cat along with this video and learn some Irish language, known in America as Irish Gaelic, and in Ireland as Irish or Gaeilge.

 

You may note that we haven’t completely made up our mind which hand signs go with which parts of the language – just tq mumble your way through it, and you’ll do fine. We sure are!

Use all your WAYK game leading skills to run an even more accelerated, effective game than us! How tq OCD can you be? This video is just one example of how to move through this same conversation – you know your players, and your situation better than us. Feel free to modify the game as needed.

It’s worth noting that, as always, we are applying tq mumble to leading a game in Irish – this is not perfect, fluent adult Irish, of any accent. But it is the Irish game that any new game leader will be leading for new players that come to Irish night.

Any mangling of Irish accent or language is on us as language hunters, not due to our fluent speaker Bob!

And yet being willing to chew through the first sounds and conversation in Irish is part of being a highly skilled language hunter –  it will always be this way, for every new language we hunt.

  1. Guys, there’s a wee typo in the above. The name of this language (when you are speaking it) is Gaeilge not “Gaelige”.
