Level of Gàidhlig through self study

Feasgar maith I was cleaning out my files and stumbled across my English diploma, it has been a couple of years but the mark caught my eye. It said that my proficiency level was C1. And I wondered about Gàidhlig, I can't seem to find to what level most self-study books go. I see myself as an absolut...

Re: Introducing myself

Hi, welcome!
I don't yet know how to welcome you in Gàidhlig so that's why I do it in English.
Kind regards.

Re: Mòr or mór?

Mòr or mór?

I found that in my book they write mór, whilst online I can find that they do not longer use it like that. In fact I think they changed every word into using it like: ò ù à ...

Re: New member

I haven't looked here since last year, sorry for the late reply! My Dutch and English are very good ( I have an extra degree in English), and since I lived in France for a year when I was 18 my French is also very good. I also am able to speak and understand German but not as good as the other langu...

Gàidhlig Beurla I only practice and learn Gaelic as a hobby, but I am so very thrilled when I find I actually am improving. But I do find it hard to participate here because I am the ultimate beginner. I combine my book with the tv episodes on youtube. I was wondering if anyone would like to look at...

Words with and without adding the -h-

Heya,

My name is Chaja, i am 23 years old and live in the Netherlands. I found a "teach yourself Gaelic"-book on the dutch version of Ebay. I only started last week so please be patient with me haha! Hopefully it won't be long before I will be able to contribute, partly, in Gaelic.

Kind regards!
