Now You’re Talking!

by Aisling-Ór Ní Aodha

Now You’re Talking! is a nine minute audio piece that follows the format of Episode 22 of Now You’re Talking, an educational television program that taught the basics of the Irish language during the 1990s. This episode teaches the basics of expressing pain and covers topics such as ‘Asking someone how they feel’, ‘Saying how you feel’, ‘Naming illnesses’, ‘Discussing injuries’ and ‘cancelling arrangements’. Now You’re Talking! uses each of these headings as a starting point to unravel expressions of pain in a vulnerable, minor language.
