Failte dhan fòram a Chrìsdein!
Tha mi gu doighèil an-duigh - beagan bored...
'S e Albanach a th'annam cuideachd agus tha mi a' fuireach ann an Dollar faisg air Sruighlea.
Tha mi ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig bho chionn ceithir deug mìosan! San t-Sultain bidh mi a' dol a Shabhal Mòr Ostaig, san t-Eilean Sgìtheanach, airson "Cùrsa Comais" a dhèanamh. Tha mi 'n dòchas gu bheil bidh e math.
Co-dhiù, tha mi glè thoilichte ur "choinneachadh"!

Welcome Chris!
I am doing fine today - a little bored...
I'm Scottish too and i live in Dollar near Stirling.
I have been learning Gaelic for 14 months! In September i will be going to Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, in Skye, to do "Cùrsa Comais". I hope it will be good.
Anyway, I am very pleased to "meet" you!

I am a bit tired today, I woke at 5:30. Why?

Tha mi a' fuireach anns a' Ghearmailt.
I am living in Germany.

Thòisich mi air Gàidhlig ionnsachadh air leth dà bhliadhna air ais.
I started learning Gealic over 2 years ago.

Ciamar a tha thu fhèin, a Chris?

Cùm suas an deagh obair! :D

Bith mi air ag ionnsachadh airson ceithir deug miosan!
Bidh mi air (G.) ionnseachadh o chionn ceithir mìosan dheug.

Halò a Choinneach Cir. :D Ciamar a tha thu an-diugh? 'S mise Chris agus tha mi ionnaschadh Gàidhlig.

Hello Coinneach Cir. How are you today? My name is Chris and I am learning Gàidhlig. ( Only for about 2 months now but feeling a bit left out of this forum and cannot seem to get help on here. Am feeling a bit let down because I'm not grasping the syntax, grammar etc. ) :naire: :cuidich:

Mar sin leat an-drasta. :balla:

Why do you feel left out? I've always tried to answer your posts and give a bit of explanations :?

If you have any questions, just ask! :D

Halò a GhunChleoc. Ciamar a tha thu an-diugh?. :D

I cant explain why I feel left out but I can say that I am having a lot of difficulty in obtaining books on Gàidhlig Grammar and Syntax, a Gàidhlig dictionary and any other material that I may require during my studies and learning of the Gàidhlig language.

I hope to be able to post things on here in Gàidhlig within the next two years and have a good grasp on syntax, grammar etc.

Mar sin leat an-drasta agus mòran taing. :flur:

P.S. I hope that others on here will provide whatever help they can as and when I need it which is most of the time at the moment. :achlais:
