Re: Chickened Out

Thanks, Scott (I think). I need to work out how to tr*nsl*t* Gaelic it would appear. Any suggestions for good online dictionaries or the best way to work things out? I've studied languages before but because I usually start with a structured course and am tr*nsl*t*ng from within contexts and grammar...

Re: A trì (#3) - Dè an obair a th' agaibh?

'S e tidsear a th' annam. I'm a teacher - though I'm on a 5 year career break at the moment (on top of a year's maternity leave so I stopped in April 2010 and go back in April 2016!) so I'm a Weight Watchers leader in the mean time to make ends meet. I don't know that I'd say that Weight Watchers wa...

Re: Chickened Out

Lol, I'm glad it's not just me, Lisa. I do know that good prep and just going for it is key - my son and I practise his welcome phrases before he goes to nursery and he waltzes in and uses them. They must realise I at least know snatches because I occasionally help my son but I've still got to open ...

Chickened Out

My son just had his first afternoon in our local Gaelic medium nursery and dived straight in with the random bits of Gaelic he already knows. Me? I helped him when he asked me, but chickened out of actually using my tiny bit of Gaelic with his new teacher. Total fail. Must try harder... Maybe in a f...

Re: A h-aon (#1) - Cò às a tha sibh?

See, I googled like crazy, and wasn't happy with it (but no idea why) but guessed it would be easier just to write it and hope that someone else could correct me. I nearly used an s but I don't know why.

Thank you!

Re: A h-aon (#1) - Cò às a tha sibh?

Feasgar math. Tha mi à An Eaglais Bhreac, ach tha mi a' fuireach ann an Glaschu an-dràsta. I'm from Falkirk, but I live in Glasgow just now. Sorry, I've not started formally learning Gaelic so I've been going round in circles with the basics - if I hear that I'm doing the distance learning course I ...

Re: Short courses (immersion?)

I believe there's a Facebook page set up for the gsol courses. I liked the link when I saw it on Gaelic Glasgow's news feed earlier today. That may keep you up to date with the course. Lx

Re: Top tips for new Gaelic learners?

I was just thinking that the books I got for my 4 year old son have been quite useful. They're the Nursery Links books which are written in English but everything that is spoken is written in Gaelic. Above the text are pictures and the speech is in bubbles. It puts the Gaelic with phonetic underneat...

Re: Fàilte! Welcome new learners!

Hi Linsey, where abouts near Falkirk do you stay? I live in Glasgow but I'm from Falkirk, and we're back there most weeks. It occurred to me that I'd only told people my name and location which isn't particularly friendly! So, I'm Lisa and I'm a 30 year old mum to a 4 year old son and a 1 year old d...

Moran taing, Gràisg! Looks useful. I may even have to sign in to twitter more regularly to pick up a few useful phrases.

Re: Fàilte! Welcome new learners!

Feasgar math! Is mise Lisa, ciamar a tha sibh? And that's about the sum total of my knowledge of Gaelic. That and "briogais." My son is to start at a Gaelic medium nursery this month with a view to going to the Glasgow Gaelic School so feel I should make a real effort to learn the language too so th...
