Yu Ming Is Ainm Dom (My Name Is Yu Ming)March 28, 2008
Had a listen to the Kiosk last week and they had a spot on about Des Bishop learning Irish. It’s not something that I would consider since I already have Russian and French that I don’t use and only sporadically use American…and yes it could be classed as a different language on occasion!
Anyway, it reminded me of the excellent short film Yu Ming Is Ainm Dom which in English is ‘My name is Yu Ming’. It’s a story of a Chinese man that decides to come to Ireland and learn the Irish language before coming over…only to find that everybody speaks English and nobody can understand him!
