Irish Lesson 51
This lesson we give you a table of contents of the first 50 lessons, to help you find topics for review more easily.
Translation of sentences at the end of Lesson 50
I will see it. He will do it. We will hear the man. He will tell me it.
The future tense can make use of much of the grammar that we have previously covered. For example, indirect speech is possible with it. To say, "I think that he will be here", the form is:
Is dóigh liom go mbeidh sé anseo (is DOH-ee luhm goh me shay* un-SHUH).
To say, "I hear that they won't be here," say:
Cloisim nach mbeidh siad anseo (KLISH-im nahk* me SHEE-uhd un-SHUH).
"Do you think that we will buy it?" is:
An dóigh leat go gceannnóimid é? (un DOH-ee lat goh gyan-OH-i-mid ay*)
