Chan aithe dhomh deuchainn a chanadh dhut gu dìreach dè an ìre a tha agad, ach faodaidh tu pàipearan a bha nan deuchainnean SQA sna bliadhnaichean sa chaidh fheuchainn. Chitheadh tu dè cho co-fhurtail a bhiodh tu sna h-ìrean sònraichte:

Hàlo - I'm an absolute beginner - though I have studied Gaeilge for a while, which should be a help. Not so long ago I filled in an on-line test for Gàidhlig and got full marks simply because the way the language works is so similar to Irish. That doesn't mean to say that I fully understood what was in the test. Part of my family was originally Scots, but I have lived for many years in France. I like the singing of Julie Fowlis and the Group Dual, Kist o Dreams by Christina Stewart. I'm interested in children's rhymes, songs and stories in Gàidhlig and in Scots.

Fàilte, a fhranc! Welcome, Franc! :) You'll find your Irish background quite helpful for Gaelic, and once you figure out which sounds are equivalent (for example, "ta" in Irish is "tha" in Gaelic, with th being silent) you'll probably get a lot of momentum from that. :)

umm... it's not actually silent, a Mhairead. To transcribe it like English, I'd probably put "Ha!", as that's more-or-less what it sounds like - a H with an A as in "bad" etc. Also, "ta" is actually Ghailck, or Gàdhlig Mhanainn: in Irish it's generally "atá", i.e. the two bits of the Gaelic form "a tha" run together. You also find that form written in Classical Gaelic.

Negatives are a bit different in Gaelic. In Irish, they're usually done with "nÍ", with "nÍ bhfuil" contracted to "nÍl". In Gaelic, they're usually done with "cha[n]", e.g. "chan eil" (in Manx, "cha nel").

Bien, bienvenue à ce forum (if that's the French for "forum"...)

"Tá" can mean "is" in Irish, like in "Tá mé" for I am or "Tá do mhargadh déanta" for Your match is made. It's true that th is not silent at the beginning of words like in "tha", but it can be silent in other places like in "math." The point is, you may not hear the t because of the h, but once you see it spelled, you can see the connection to the Irish t.

Carson a bheil thu ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig, a Fhranc? :)
Why are you learning Gaelic, Franc?

The Gaelic and Scots oral traditions are both very rich! I went to a Gaelic song workshop in St Andrews with Margaret Bennett, and she taught us some Gaelic songs. I really liked how some of them imitated birdsong. :) Do you have any favourite Gaelic or Scots songs?
