From now on, I'll just assume that if the word doesn't exist in English, then it won't exist in Gaelic either. So, a Gaeli would not equate Bràghad with the same area as the Décolletage. OK. AFB has the meaning: " the part of the body between the neck and the upper chest (or any sub-part thereo...

Until you can get a hold of Blas na Gàidhlig , the Learn Gaelic website give you an idea of the basic sounds here .

Are there any films made in Gàidhlig language?

23179 A Shìle, càite a bheil mi a lorg Secret of Kells ann an DVD? (Sa Ghàidhlig - tha mi an DVD fhathast sa Bheurla.) Choimhead mi Song of the Sea anns a' BhBC Alba an-diugh, ach chan eil mi a' lorg fiosrachadh air loidhne mu na eadar-theangachaidhean. Cheannaich mi e bho Amazon nuair a bha ... it...

Are there any films made in Gàidhlig language?

Well, the Gàidhlig (dubbed) version of " Song of the Sea ", Oran na Mara , is showing on BBC Alba on Christmas Eve, but they have not made it available on DVD in Gàidhlig, which they did for " Secret of Kells ", which also shows occasionally on BBC Alba. Other programmes availabl...

We are currently learning the idiomatic[?] phrase "chur droil", e.g. gam chur droil, gad chur droil, etc.

However, I have not learned to say that "Neil is driving Florence crazy", instead of "Neil is driving her crazy". Does that make sense? And, how do I go about it?

’S toil le... + name or pronoun rules

You will find with An Cùrsa Inntrigidh that you have to assumed the same rules apply for ann/anns, ri/ris, le/leis, etc., explained in earlier sections. I think that is why any further explanation for le/leis is omitted. Your tutor ought to have hinted at in when reading out the explanations.
