What also worked for me was to look at available resources and then mix & match whatever was working best for me or w...

Re: Starting simple

Yes. You are calling your partner "cèile", which is like giving him/her a name or nickname, so the vocative rules apply.

Other people pronounce it with the tip of the tongue to the back of the teeth. If you can afford it, I recommend getting Akerbeltz' book, which is a...
