Chan eil mi eòlach air an abairt Bheurla. A bheil thu a-mach air "deoch an dorais"?

tr*nsl*t**n help required...

That tr*nsl*t**n service is a bit on the expensive side to put it mildly - are you sure that that quote was for a single sentence? There are affordable ones available that will do a good job http://www.foramnagaidhlig.net/foram/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1262 "Glacadh suas" does not mean &qu...

tr*nsl*t**n help required...

Halò! 'S mise Leòmhann.

No, you repeat the verb in positive or negative form, including the tense. Just like in Portugese.

So, it's "tha" only if the quesion started with "a bheil" or "nach eil"

Halò! 'S mise Leòmhann.

Falo, ach meirgeach sna làithean seo

I do, but rusty these days.

You now have an advantage in learning Gaelic over English speakers: For learning yes/no, think falo/não falo rather than sim/não.

Halò! 'S mise Leòmhann.

às na Stàitean Aonaichte, because it's plural

a' Ghearmailt = country
an Gearmailteach = person
a' Ghearmailtis = language

Tha, tha a' Ghearmailtis agam. A bheil cànan sam bith eile agad fhèin?

Yes, I do speak German. Do you speak any other language yourself?
