If there is anything missing (not accessible via learngaelic.net or the links I provided), please let me know in this thread. There is a thriving Gaelic class held at City Lit in Central London, with levels for completely beginners and more fluent learners: http://www.citylit.ac.uk/search?searchter...

Re: New Class list on homepage

Thanks, I'll do that.

BTW, and sorry for going off-topic, is there any way to prevent posts from appearing automatically on the forum's Twitter feed? Apologies if this has been asked before - I've just recently joined, and couldn't find anything obvious in the Control Panel.

Ann am Beurla no anns a' Bheurla

Hi,

Bha mi direach a' leaughadh an duilleag-lin seo: https://gd.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Talla_M%C3%B2r far a bheil an labhairt "ann am Beurla". Dh'ionnsaich mise "anns a' Bheurla" / "sa Bheurla".

I can think of at least one teacher I've had over the years who would have m...
