Knew you were Irish the second you said "mam"

Yes I am Irish, agus anois tá aithne agat duine eile in ann Gaeilge a labhairt.

American sadly but I'm a good chuck Irish (over 60%). How is Ireland? I want to take a trip there sometime.

Bhí mé nuair a bhí mé nios óige. Chaith mé cupla samhanna ar Arainn Mhór ag an Ghaeltacht. Ní labhraím Gaeilge anois. Táim ag freastail ar ollscoil ag deanamh tréidliachta. Labhraím béarla abhaile, tá sé níos éasca.
I ndairire tá sé dúlagaracht.

The Welsh and English say "mam" too, **** knows what the Scottish say though, you can't understand them.

Is it only certain parts of England? All my English friends say "mum"

I think it's context really, like we say both in Wales too but "mam" is much more abundant than "mum"

Yeah but 80% of the things you learn are totally useless

Did you know that the Polish word for "anteater" is "mrówkojad"?

Now you do.

Did you know that Welsh is the only Celtic language still recognized as a healthy language that isn't dead yet? (Although it really is I live in Wales and I only know 5 people who can speak it fluently)

The more you know The less you care

It's definitely more alive than Irish, I don't know anyone (besides an Irish teacher) who are fluent, though pretty much everyone speaks a reasonable amount
