I found Irish pretty difficult because I wasn’t very good at languages. I’m still trying to get better at Gaeilge though. I even have a book on computing written entirely in Irish that I am trying to read at the moment:
I did not like chemistry. I think it was to abstract for me – I couldn’t grasp the idea why some elements will react and why some won’t. Although, now that I think of it, it is very mathematical and logical.
However, I would love in chemistry classes when the teacher would show us some experiment. I remember once he dipped a very small piece of sodium (which is a metal) in water and then — wooow — it caught fire, inside the water. That was pretty cool!

Religion is ok so far for me but irish is also difficult for me but i do not really see a point about learning it but i would be nice to learn my country’s language.

There are a lot of reasons for learning Irish, but some of the top ones for me are:
1. I have friends who are fluent in Irish and speak to each other in that language, but it is hard for me to follow them
2. Learning a language other than English is never a bad thing, and it makes it easier to pick up a third or fourth language
3. There are jobs in translating official documents into Irish as that is a legal requirement in this country
4. In fact, speaking Irish is a requirement for certain jobs in this country (mostly political positions).
5. It’s part of our culture and we really should try to keep it alive
I struggled with Irish in school, but I really, really recommend learning it. Everyone I know who speaks Irish is really proud of their ability with the language and I want to learn to be that good too.
