I think there is a Gaelic Link thread somewhere, but I don't mind it being here. Hi stoirmeil smile.gif. I hope Wiz will be back soon smile.gif.

I know this site and I only can recommend it to all Gaelic Learners biggrin.gif thumbs_up.gif.

With this akerbeltz site, I would start with the "beagan gaidhlig" toggle. It really takes you by the hand in very well-done plain english. I especially love the frank discussion of the reaction you can get from native speakers sometimes. I've been both an adult learner, and eventually a teacher, of another "endangered" language, and this all rings so true! Including how protective and reticent native speakers can be until you pass muster. biggrin.gif But I can tell you that it CAN be done. If I hadn't already been through this with yiddish I would be very daunted by gaelic.

There's a lot there, but it's in a very logical order. I'm just working my way through it. The language teacher in me is enjoying (and learning from) the ingenuity and empathy for the learner the one who made this site has, too.

Hi ,
just a quick note to said I officially start the gaelic course since thursday and like that!Sometimes I'm just not sure if I have heard correctly some word,but it's nice to learning a new language.My sister said she will probably learn too as soon as I gave her some reference.I will have someone to practice the speaking part.
