Drops (a Kahoot! Company) Launches new Irish Language Course

Drops Launches Irish

March 1st 2023, United States - Drops, a Kahoot! company and a leading language-learning app, is announcing the addition of the Irish Language course to its platform. The new Irish language course allows learners all over the world to learn more about Irish culture and to help others connect with the millions of people around the world who claim Irish descent.  

The new Irish language course includes more than 1000+ words and phrases for both beginners and advanced learners in addition to  culturally-specific topics to help users learn about Irish culture. The new Irish course  was created with native speakers, including our  translator, Amy McColgan an Irish teacher and translator from Donegal.

"We're excited to launch Irish on the Drops platform as we continue to preserve endangered languages and promote their use in everyday life," said Drops GM & CPO, Frederik Cordes. "As we approach St. Patrick's Day, it's important that we recognize and celebrate Irish culture and language. The Irish course on Drops will help users to connect with their roots and celebrate their heritage wherever they are in the world."

Preserving, Revitalizing and Celebrating Endangered Languages

The Irish language, also known as Gaeilge, is an endangered language with 78,000 native speakers and only 1.2 million speakers worldwide. This is why preserving the Irish language is so important, and why Drops has made this new course a priority. 

In addition, by 2030, the Irish government aims to have 20% of public employees in Ireland proficient in Irish. This is part of a broader effort to increase the use and visibility of the Irish language in public life and to help preserve and promote the language for future generations. The new Drops Irish language course is an important step towards achieving this goal, providing an accessible and effective way for public employees, and anyone else interested in learning Irish, to improve their language skills and contribute to the revitalization of this important part of Irish culture. 

“We are extremely honoured to help support language preservation through Drops. With the addition of Irish (a.k.a Gaelig) , we’re enabling more than 40 million Drops users to learn endangered languages such as Te Reo Maori, Hawaiian, Ainu, and Samoan.” said Cordes. The Irish language course will be available on the Drops app from March 1st  time for Irish Language Week, which runs from the 1st to the 17th of March.

Available for Download 

Drops is available on the App Store and Google Play Store and offers courses in over 48 languages with +40M installs. The app uses a gamified approach to language learning and is designed to help users reach their language learning goals in a short amount of time. To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, Drops will also run a special challenge in the app to incentivize users to learn about Irish culture and language.
