Re: Dè tha thu a' dèanamh? / What are you doing?

Bha mi air falbh bho (?) FnG air miosachean ach Tha an obair airson an cùrsa oilthigh agam glè dhoirbh agus cha saor-uair agam! Tha mi an dòchas nach bheil mo Gàidhlig nas miosa! Bha mi a' smaoinicheadh gun feum mi ri cleachdadh. I've been away from FnG for months! The work for my university course ...

Re: Group Skype for beginners

I'm not sure if these still run, but if anyone wants to add me on Skype its: Teddie109 (or Thomas (underslash) Eddie (at) hotmail (dot) com, since they linked MSN and Skype together). I haven't been on here in a while, and I had to drop my Gaelic lessons due to time restraints at uni. I am picking t...

Re: Just doing it... English to Gàidhlig - Short bits and Pi

Thanks for the corrections, i've had a look and thet mostly seem logical. One thing i'd like to ask is the difference between 'mo' and then e.g. 'an càr agam' why can't i just say 'mo càr' ? I was under the impression that mo is general possessive word. Just like my in english, but it now seems like...

Re: Saying what you are.

Thanks, is really cleared it up for me. I have one more (unrelated) question, i have learned that both 'i' and 'e' can be used to mean 'it'. And i have gotten in the habit of using 'i'. However, most people on here seem to use the 'e' form, and infact one person asked why i use 'i'. Is it just that ...

Saying what you are.

Sorry if this has been asked before, i wasn't sure how to phrase my search. In one of my first gaelic lessons, i learned that to say, for example, 'I am a Student', i would say: 'Is mise Oileanach'. However, i have recently learned that this can be said as 'Tha mi 'Nam Oileanach'. Can both of these ...

She's a native speaker (From Harris) so she it's not like she doesn't know what she's talking about, but i dunno. I might just ask her about accents.

Re: What Made You Want To Learn Gàidhlig?

Thanks for correcting my gaelic :) one problem i always tend to have is tr*nsl*t*ng to literally from english to gaelic. I was taught that either i or e could mean 'it' and i had just got in the habit of always using i, thou i can see why it probably would have been better to use e in this context. ...

Re: What Made You Want To Learn Gàidhlig?

I grew up in a bi-lingual village ( infact two of my aunties are from the hebredies and fluent in gaelic, and my mum learned a good bit of gaelic, though shes forgotten alot.) so i grew up with the odd gaelic phrase and gaelic words. I also got a few lessons in primary and high-school, but it wasnt ...
