Re: math math vs glè mhath

I'm not certain of the degree between the 2 expressions here, but math math is definitely adult language.

Re: When to use àlainn vs brèagha?

There's also "eireachdail", which has a connotation of being elegant.

Re: Word order in a Dè... bhios question

Dè an dath a bhios orra The other word order is wrong. "a bhios orra" is a relative clause, so it needs something to refer to, which is "an dath". The pattern is: Dè/Cò <something you want to know or identify> a <verb in relative form + phrase about something you already know> càite a takes the depe...

Re: bhitheas vs bhios and bithidh vs bidh

And some good news for you: bi is actually regular in the future tense! Base form: bi Independent: base + -idh = bidh Dependent: base = bi Relative: lenited base + -as = bhios . The only departure from the regular verbs here is the spelling; the pronunciation is the same. You might find these verb t...

Re: a-steach or a-staigh (does it matter?)

It's best to learn there as motion (change) vs. location (state) pairs.

Tha mi a' dol a-steach -> tha mi a-staigh a-nis.
Tha mi a' dol a-mach -> tha mi a-muigh a-nis.

BTW there are also 2 words for "now" that fit this pattern. State: an-dràsta. Change: a-nis

Re: Stick to a course or jump ship?

I have not done any of those two courses, but in general, it's OK to mix and match whatever works best for you personally. A certain amount of effort is to be expected, but not to the point where it will burn you out.

'A thoirt leam' vs 'còmhla rium fhin' for 'with me'

Also, don't forget the accent on the fhìn - it's a long vowel ;)

Other than that, what the others said. As a rule of thumb, you take people còmhla riut and everything else leat.
