Fantastic. Thanks for the help. Ooh, Gaelic zumba sounds great for an awkward EE student.

Studying in Scotland

I might have a chance to study in Scotland for either a summer or semester, but it would be through Arcadia University, so my options are limited to University of Aberdeen and the University of Glasgow. My actual area of study is Electrical Engineering, but I would like to take some Gaelic courses w...

Re: 'rc' in stressed syllables

No, I keep inserting a vowel in between the two. Sounds like /rax/. I've been trying to delete the vowel sound, but then I either pronounce it /Rx/ or /x/ isn't pronounced correctly.

'rc' in stressed syllables

It looks to me like they screwed up on writing the first instance of the name, realized that they were doing it wrong in the...

Hello from Nebraska

Is mise 'Shawn'. I don't know if there is a Gàidhlic name for Shawn. Obviously there's a Gaelige name, but, as far as I know, Iain is the closest in Gàidhlic. I'm from Nebraska in the US, and I began learning Gaelic maybe 9 months ago. I'm not very good, but I joined this forum so that I could get s...
