Re: Knowing what you know now

I think I would have opted for immersion; however it was never available near to me. I am still doing structured courses though, as I am not disciplined enough to learn on my own.

Speaking Our Language on Youtube

I had been watching Machair and Speaking Our Language - and ... it was really nice to have easy access on youtube to any episode. All the episodes of "Speaking Our Language" are still on YouTube, but on other accounts. As for Machair, and Bannan, as yet I have not seen any updated links for these p...

From now on, I'll just assume that if the word doesn't exist in English, then it won't exist in Gaelic either. So, a Gaeli would not equate Bràghad with the same area as the Décolletage. OK. AFB has the meaning: " the part of the body between the neck and the upper chest (or any sub-part thereof)" ;...

Are there any films made in Gàidhlig language?

23179 A Shìle, càite a bheil mi a lorg Secret of Kells ann an DVD? (Sa Ghàidhlig - tha mi an DVD fhathast sa Bheurla.) Choimhead mi Song of the Sea anns a' BhBC Alba an-diugh, ach chan eil mi a' lorg fiosrachadh air loidhne mu na eadar-theangachaidhean. Cheannaich mi e bho Amazon nuair a bha ... it...

Are there any films made in Gàidhlig language?

Well, the Gàidhlig (dubbed) version of " Song of the Sea ", Oran na Mara , is showing on BBC Alba on Christmas Eve, but they have not made it available on DVD in Gàidhlig, which they did for " Secret of Kells ", which also shows occasionally on BBC Alba. Other programmes available to watch which hav...

We are currently learning the idiomatic[?] phrase "chur droil", e.g. gam chur droil, gad chur droil, etc.

However, I have not learned to say that "Neil is driving Florence crazy", instead of "Neil is driving her crazy". Does that make sense? And, how do I go about it?
