The book is presented bilingually. In addition to the main instructional text, there are boxed features on useful information such as common greetings, the various ways of saying 'where are you from' in Irish and other such common phrases of language. Turas Teanga will be one of RTE's most important television series in 2004 and the book, either in its stand-alone form, or accompanied by three CDs, will be an invaluable resource.
