Audiobooks, graded level and short stories for Gaelic learners?

I can also recommend this one for lower intermediate: https://gaelicbooks.org/index.php?route ... =dorchadas

Short stories and poems written by schoolchildren. They are interesting to read but don't require too much vocabulary.

Audiobooks, graded level and short stories for Gaelic learners?

The Lasag series is good for intermediate learners - they have an English summary at the top of each chapter and a small glossary

Names

Something with "creag" in it, maybe?

We have a good free online dictionary: https://www.faclair.com/

Pick something and then post both the English version and your attempt, and we'll try to fix it for you so that it will be correct.

Cait' Caite/ bheil

Yes, it's a bit like contractions. In "Càite a bheil", the 2 sounds that I underlined are pronounced the same, so they usually get pulled into one.

Càite bheil is an unusual spelling for it though, Càit' a bheil is the usual way to spell it.

Correct/most natural forms of the conditional tense of 'to be'

No, "bhiodh mi" is never used.

I have never seen the "bhinn" spelling before, but it's entirely possible that people shorten it like that when speaking. I have never paid attention to that though.

It's entirely possible that she made a mistake - I am not an expert on the subject at all.

[xi] in Gaelic

It is a valid syllable, but unlike [hi:], I don't remember ever hearing it as a vocable
