Halò!

Unread post by Charlie la malice » Fri Mar 18, 2016 10:11 pm

Halò!
’S mise Charlene (no Charlie). Tha mi a’ fuireach ann an Saint Etienne, an Fhraing. Tha mi seachd bliadhna fichead agus tha mi ag obair ann am bùth-leabhraichean. Tha mi ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig a chionn bu toigh leam a leughadh bàrdachd na Gàidhlig.

I guess that's the best I can do for now so I'll switch to English. I've been learning Gaelic in my spare time for a few months now, using http://www.learngaelic.net/ and the Colloquial Scottish Gaelic course by Katherine M. Spadaro & Katie Graham. I also listen to Radio nan Gàidheal regularly, and try to read some poetry in Gaelic alongside the English version. I figured that if I wanted to make significant progress, I'd better start using the language myself so here I am :D

Fàilte! An toil leat a bhith ag obair anns a' bhùth-leabhraichean?

Welcome! Do you like working in the bookshop? :)

Halò, a Mhairead!
Tha mi toilichte ur coinneachadh. 'S toigh leam a bhith ag obair anns a' bhùth-leabhraichean, ach tha mi trang gu tric is minig. Dè an obair a th' agaibh fhèin, mura mìomhail ri fhaighneachd?

Tha sin snog! Bha mi a' leughadh Beurla san oilthigh. Càit a bheil thu a' sgrùdadh?

Glé mhath! 'S e mo chànan màthaireil a tha ann am Beurla. Chan eil Fraingis agam, gu mì-fhortanach! Tha mi a' sgrùdadh aig an t-oilthigh Chill Rìmhinn. :)

Bha mi a' dol ann an Dùn Èideann, ann an Glaschu agus ann an Ìle, ach cha robh mi a' dol ann an Cill Rìmhinn idir.

a' dol a Dhùn Èideann, a Ghlaschu agus a dh'Ìle ... a Chill Rìmhinn

and if you want a proper past tense:

Chaidh mi a Dhùn Èideann... ach cha deach... rach is one of the 10 irregular verbs.

Tapadh leibh a GhunChleoc!

Thank you for your corrections! I'm not very familiar with the past tense yet. As for my other mistake, was it kind of as if I was saying "I went in Edinburgh, in Glasgow, etc." instead of "I went to Edinburgh, to Glasgow, etc."?

Ah, that's a silly mistake! Tapadh leibh a-rithist!

Tha mi a' dol a dh'Ìle an ath-sheachdain ionnas gu 's urrain dhomh Gàidhlig cleachdadh. (Not sure about that one, I hope it's correct!)
