Actually if someone could tell me how to count to 4 in Gaelic that would be a great start and I intend to do the lessons also. Looks like great fun!!

But I really need to know how to say 1,2,3,4

Hello Raven!

Here is how to count to 4. When you count in Gaelic, typically you afix "a" in front of the number, just like a band would do when starting a song "a one, a two, a three."

In Gaelic this would be

a h-aon (uh HOON)
a dh (uh GAH)
a tr (uh TREE, sort of roll the r on this one, almost like tdee)
a ceithir (uh KAY-heer)

Hope that helps!

I have a question! I have seen hello typed out both ways: Halo and Hallo! My books say Halo (sorry my accent marks don't work). Which is correct?

Tapadh leibh

Hal CelticRose, Tha mi gu digheil, tapadh leat.

I don't think Hal/hall are proper Gaelic words in the true sense CelticRose. Just gaelicicisations (if that's a word) of the English word 'Hello'. No True Gaelic word begins with H. I've seen both spellings myself & i think you can use either. Maybe someone more enlightned can give you a better answer though.

Wouldn't be surprised, but I'd like to know... what would be the proper generic greeting?

Well most Gaelic speakers just say Hal, but it's usually followed up with something like Ciamar a tha thu? - How are you? or D do chor? - How you doing? I don't think there is a word that specifically translates to Hello except the Gaelic word Hal/Hall which of course comes from the English word 'Hello'
