Dia daoibh! (Irish Gaelic for Hello there)

I'm glad that there is a strong interest in this language. It was a language that was almost wiped out, but the strength and stubbornness of the Gaels wouldn't let their language die. Here in this forum we'll talk about all forms of the Gaelic language - Scottish, Irish, and Manx. We'll also look into dialects of other gaelic decent language. If you have any questions, on the language, or on how to say something in Gaelic, feel free to ask. I'll also post resources for learning Gaelic and funny phrases to make you laugh!

As always, be polite to people in this forum. Here we'll try to learn together Gaelic and help others as we go. Just treat others as you'd want to be treated, and we'll get along fine.

Thanks!
Dannah

Shameful, I know, but even though I'm from a Celtic Province where Scots Gaelic is still kicking around, I can't speak a stitch of it. sad.gif

But that's all going to change, isn't it? biggrin.gif

Ciamar a tha sibh? - How are you all?
I'm a beginner in learning Scots Gaelic and it's a pretty hard task for me...but it's part of the cultural heritage and should not die out! Besides that I love the sound of Gaelic voices...I'm glad we have a place for it at CR! Eager to learn, Danann! smile.gif

oldraven, it's never too late for a change...let's start together! biggrin.gif

Greetings Danann!!!! And congratulations on the forum!!!! I think it is something that has needed to be here! I made a couple beginner's threads to get the ball rolling. I hope I wasn't stepping on any toes. If so, just delete 'em. wink.gif

I look forward to learn more in the way of Scots Gaelic.
CelticRose, had started a thread in the Scotland forum, for Scots Gaelic, but it has gotten too advanced for me. So maybe we can differing levels of difficulty or advancement????

Again, Congrats!

Hi everyone,
I really wish to learn gaelic,tonight I have try but 2 sites who have been highly recommend I cannot hear anything because of my stupid computer.So it's hard to learn if you can't prononce anything.In my medieval trip I didn't choose if I will be a celt , scot or another character but I think knowing a bit of gaelic will give a touch of realism and I know a few people who will be impress. Anyone have site to recommend to learn gaelic for beginner and later for advance?

May I ask , how did you say highland in gaelic?And if it's not too much asking , how did you say moon or daughter of the moon in gaelic?Thank you so much.

I wasn't sure where to put this -- WizardofOwls, please move it wherever you think it belongs if you need to. WizardofOwls mentioned this site before in cinnection with pronunciation, but I wanted to repeat the reference, because it has a whole lot more to offer: idiomatic stuff, folklore and riddles, issues of grammar and orthography, games for kids, it's just very rich and fascinating to really go through this whole site.
