Scottish Gaelic


Scottish Gaelic, the branch of the Gaelic language spoken by the Scotts, and I believe the early Picts (but it's changed since then, I'm sure).

I suggest picking up a learning aid, preferably one with tapes so you can hear how things are pronounced, it help immensely. I also suggest getting a Gaelic-English dictionary, you can find them on Amazon.com for fairly cheap (I picked up 2 for like $4), and going to the Scottish Practice Grounds and working on at least sentence structure and grammar with each other. Good Luck.

Lesson 1 - Ciamar a tha thu?

Lesson 2 - Cait' a bheil sibh a' dol?
