Tha sinn daonnan toilichte daoine fhaicinn air an Fhòram à dùthchannan air feadh an t-saoghail. :-)
Agus nach math gun robh cothrom agad cùrsaichean a dhèanamh ann an Alba fhèin agus Alba Nuadh!

An dòchas gum bi thu a' sgrìobhadh air an Fhòram bho àm gu àm - tha cuspairean gu leòr againn!]]>

Dè an seòrsa ceuma a bhios tu a' dèanamh ann an Cumbria? Agus am bi thu ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig air loidhne le SMO, no le colaiste eile?

What kind of degree will you be doing in Cumbria? And will you be learning Gaelic online with SMO, or another college?



Instead of a-staigh (inside), just use ann an (in):

Tha mi ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig ann an Glaschu. (You can also say: ann an Glaschu fhèin - in Glasgow itself = actually in G.)]]>

Fàite chridheil ort! :D

Agus tha thu às an Eadailt! Nach eil sin inntinneach.
Càite anns an Eadailt?

Tìoraidh an-dràsda!

Ciao!


Welcome!
And you're from Italy! Isn't that interesting.
Where in Italy?
Bye for now!


from Italy: Tha mi às an Eadailt
in Italy: Tha mi anns an Eadailt

from S. Uist: Tha mi à Uibhist a Deas
in S. Uist: Tha mi a' fuireach ann an Uibhist a Deas

This is probably too much grammar right now :spors: , but just in case you were wondering:

às and anns an if the name of the place has an article ("from / in the Italy")
otherwise à and ann an (no -s). ("from / in Uist")]]>

I would have never guessed I should say “in the Italy” !

Tha mi às an Turin. I come from Turin.

So, Tìoraidh is bye?
I was at the supermarket and a man would only talk to me in Gàidhlig and I wanted to say something, but I couldn’t understand anything! So I decided I was at least going to say bye, I knew it was “mar sin leibh” but I wanted confirmation with someone local first, so I asked the cashier how to say bye and she said a totally different word (which now I realise must have been Tìoraidh) so I just ended up smiling and nodding and not speak any Gàidhlig :|]]>

"Tìoraidh" is Gaelic spelling for "Cheerie" ;), and people say "Tìoraidh an-dràsta". Mar sin leat/leibh is also common, or Beannachd leat/leibh, among others.]]>

Thanks for the correction - yeh I know I need to improve my spelling in Scottish Gaelic. It's often the simplest/most common things that trip people up :P I think in this case I made the mistake because 'mhath' and 'bha' are more or less pronounced the same, right?]]>
