Uill, chan eil mi cinnteach, ach cha chreid mi gu bheil "15 hours of Gaelic tuition using the exciting new ULPAN method" freagarrach airson fìor Ùlpan. Às dèidh cùrsa Ùlpan, b' fheudar dhuibh a bhith fileanta: cha dèan 15 uairean a thìde an gnòthaich idir. :breugadair:

Agus...?

Chan eil iad ag ràdh gur e cùrsa bho toiseach-toiseachaidh gu fileantachd a th'anns a' cùrsa seachdainn. Ùlpan is dividided into units. Read the leaflet and you'll see which units they'll be covering.

A' bharrachd air seo, tha fiù 's Daibhidh den bheachd nach dean Ùlpan a-mhàin an gnòthaich -- bha e riamh a' sireadh pàrtaichean airson cothroman comhraidh 's cleachdaidh, agus seo na tha iad a' deanamh air an cùrsa: cleachdadh na cànan ann an iomadach doighean.

And finally: they're selling a cultural holiday here, trying to encourage tourism on the island. Just selling an intensive Gaelic course and then dinner and bed in English isn't going to differentiate them from various schools nearer to people.
