Yuri’s Irish Grammar
The Irish cards consist of two parts. The first part contains 30 charts with grammatical categories such as pronouns, articles, possessives and verbs. Most of this card is focused on the verb conjugations in the present, past and future tense, regular and irregular verbs, the conditional and lists of verbs with prepositions.
Some of the grammar included in Yuri’s Irish Grammar Part 1:
- Definite and indefinite articles
- Personal pronouns
- The copula forms
- Bí in the present tense in affirmative, negative and interrogative
- Past, present and future tense
- Useful verbs with prepositions
- The conditional
- Irregular verbs
- Indirect speech
The second card of the Irish series contains over 20 grammar charts displaying the noun declensions, adjectives and prepositional pronouns.
Some of the grammar included in Yuri’s Irish Grammar Part 2:
- Prepositional pronouns
- Examples of masculine and feminine nouns with their declension
- Examples of the 3 cases (nominative, vocative and genitive)
- Comparatives and superlatives
- Common adjectives
- Time expressions
- Common adjectives
The charts are displayed in a set of colours to help you easily identify the word you need.
The spelling changes are shown throughout the cards with the colour green for aspiration, (séimhiú) and with the colour orange for eclipsis (urú).
The colours yellow, purple and green display the different persons or pronouns: mé, tú, sé, sí muid, sibh and said. So, when you see these colours in any of the charts, you will know which person it corresponds to.
The tables are independent from each other so you can focus on the chart related to the topic that you are studying in class.
The cards are a quick and handy reference guide to keep by your side when in class or for independent studying. They are great for studying, for reference and for language practice.
They are convenient because they don’t contain all the explanations that you have already been given by your teacher, or that are included in your book. They contain the elements that you need to put into practice.
If you are an Irish student studying for your exams, both cards are suitable for the Junior and Leaving Certificate.
