I understand what you mean about 'haltingly'. I spoke quite a bit of Gaelic when my grandparents were still around, but they've been gone almost longer than I can remember now and with no one to converse with...well...you get the idea. Though I can still understand it, I can't speak much anymore. So I too, am trying to relearn it.
Have fun here. They're a great group of people and a lot of fun.
Welcome to Celtic Radio Kelly. I hope you enjoy the music as well as the great people you'll find here on the forums. I think Gaelic is one of the most beautiful languages ever, although I think it's very difficult to learn. There's plenty to learn here on the forum good luck with it all.
