Re: bhitheas vs bhios and bithidh vs bidh

Regarding dependent and independent verb forms --- If you have a copy of Scottish Gaelic in 12 Weeks (Roibeard O Maolalaigh) there are several very helpful explanations of independent and dependent forms and tables showing the forms for the verbs being discussed: page 36, #27a Independent and depend...

New Youtube channel and video course for learning Gaelic

New Scottish Gaelic Conversation group in Minnesota

Hello all, I’ve been studying Scottish Gaelic for a few years with a Skype tutor in Inverness, Scotland and with distance courses through SMO and AGA. I would like to see if there are other learners near Minneapolis, Minnesota also interested in learning and practicing Scottish Gaelic. So I set up a...

Grammar Check please? Family members

I'm a beginner as well. This looks like an interesting question to see if I understand the grammar I've been reading about. The challenge for me is always whether I can apply the grammar I've read about to complete sentences. I think there are other options for these sentences and I'm wondering if a...

Speaking Our Language on Youtube

No doubt you are right about the copyright issue. I think recent Bannan episodes were posted - which might have caused the problem. I had been watching Machair and Speaking Our Language - and I think all those episodes were posted. It was a great resource for learners without access to BBC options (...

Speaking Our Language on Youtube

Thank you. The Learngaelic site is very helpful because it includes the Gaelic and English text shown for the video clips that it has. I did enjoy having the entire 25 minute programs available on youtube though! I might have to locate and purchase the DVDs now! :)

Speaking Our Language on Youtube

Does anyone know what has happened to the Speaking Our Language programs on Youtube? All of them seem to have been removed with the Youtube "taken down for copyright violations" notice in place. I think the user account name was Macsteaphain or Leodhasach. These are a great resource for learners. I ...

Halò!

Here is the book list I mentioned above. Books I used while taking ACI - Gaelic by Roderick MacKinnon – 35 chapters titled with the Grammar topic covered. Each chapter has a list of key points for that topic and practice exercises. From the 1970s so it uses old spelling methods. Extremely helpful in...
