Re: tr*nsl*t**n Attempt I

Or should that be 'anns a Gàidhlig' instead of 'ann na Gàidhlig'?

Re: Here's some incentive to learn Gàidhlig! ;-)

Re: What Made You Want To Learn Gàidhlig?

I was born in Australia, and so was my Mother. She feels Australian through and through. I don't, not at all. I feel like I was transplanted. Since I was six I felt like I was stuck on one hellishly long holiday in Australia and I was desperate for it to be over so I could go home to Scotland. I use...

Re: Inverness Trains

That's a great idea! I hope some one comes along who takes those trains. I certainly wish I did.

Re: Speaking to a One Year Old

I’m not trying to teach him Gaelic at this point, I’ll send him to a GME school for that when he’s older. Basically, I’m just trying to learn words and phrases which I will actually use in daily speech, because I find words in context easier to remember. His Father and I speak a mix of English, Fren...

Re: Here's some incentive to learn Gàidhlig! ;-)

Is this radio station on-line? If so, how do I listen and does it just stream or are set programmes of it downloadable? My Internet is too slow to stream.

Re: Speaking to a One Year Old

Tapadh leibh GunChleoc. Much appreciated on the endearments!

I didn't actually mean body parts with the other words, but the words of the function to urinate, have urinated etc. As in when explaining to a toddler that they should sit on the potty to urinate, rather than on daddy's shoe. :lol:

I need help with some words, I've tried dictionaries but I'm not having a lot of luck, as the words are odd. Here goes, in Gàidhlig what do you say to a very ...
