"A bheil sibh a' fuireach ann am *enter location here*?

I've started the Beag Air Bheag course again (probably the fifth time) and this time I've actually stuck to it past the first two units! But now I have a question: in unit 3, it provides a way to ask "Do you live in *enter place here*?" by saying "A bheil sibh a' fuireach ann am *enter place here*?"...

What is that?

Also, I've finished a syllabus that I'm going to try and follow, where could I post that for you guys to look at? And also on what forum could I ask questions concerning grammar?

P.S. Sorry it has been so long since my last post...

Re: ...Lets try again...

I will definitely do my best to do so!

I was also hoping, when I get better at speaking the language, to participate in a Skype chat or something like that.

...Lets try again...

This will be my third time trying to learn Gaelic. As I've said in previous posts, this language is very important to me in many aspects, and now I am determined to learn it! The past two times I either became to lazy to continue or did not find the time to continue. So I was wondering if there was ...

Returning...

Halò! I've been away from this forum for about a year (if not more), and I am making an effort to restart and try again! I am naturally a slow learner when it comes to languages but this language in particular is very important to me... being the language of my forefathers and it will really help in...

Well, here's my attempt:

Mi seachrain air, seachad aonach agus gleann.
I wander on, over hill and glen

I'm sure it's terrible, due to my poor knowledge of Gàidhlig grammar.

If it's on CD, try SlowBast! (http://www.slowgold.com/) or look for free alternatives online.

Eschatology

Ok, is there a Gàidhlig word for Eschatology?? If so, can you please give it to me??

The study of the End
for me please?

A bheil eolach agad air Joanne MacD? 'S e aithne, tha mi an. Yes, I do. There is no "yes". There is no "I do". There is only something in between: "do". So if the question was "An aithne dhuit...?", the answer would be simply "'S aithne." (No "e".) As the question was "A bheil thu eòlach air...?" o...

'S e aithne, tha mi an. Carson? Dè mu dheidhinn i?
(I'm supposing I said:)
Yes, I do. Why? What about her?

(Wouldn't 'an aithne dhut...' be a good way of saying 'Do you know...'?)
