A Ghun Chleoc, Bha Eurovision èibhinn...

Co-dhiù, an-diugh bha mi ann am Peairt còmhla ri m' àthair agus chaidh mi dhan colaiste. A-nis, tha mi a' dèanamh an cùrsa "Gaelic 2 - SQA Module" - Tha mi a' smaoineachadh gu bheil e math agus beagan doirbh...
An dèidh sin, chaidh sinn taigh-biadh, biadh Sìonach, agus bha moran biadh againn! Bha e blàsta.
Dh'fhaighinn sinn am bùs aig 210f gu Sruighlea agus na am bùs eile aig 310f gu Dollar. Bha i ro thèth... Bha an t-uisge ann moran.
A-nis, tha mo chairdean an seo. Tha sinn ag èisteachd ri ceòl - Hellogoodbye. Tha i math.
A-màireach, bith mi a dhol mo chùrsa...

Eurovision was funny...

Went to Perth with my dad. Doing a Gaelic course now. Think it will be good but hard.
After went to restaurant and ate tons. It was yummy.
We got the 210 bus to Stirling then another bus at 310 to Dollar. It was too hot... It was raining a lot.
Now, my friends are here. Got music on.
Tomorrow, i will do my course...

Tha mi toilichte gun do chòrd EV riut agus tha mi an dòchas gum bi an cùrsa glè fheumail is tlachdmhor dhut!
I'm happy you liked EV and I hope the course will be very useful and fun!

You are mixing the "Tha Noun Adjective" and the "'S e Noun1 a th' ann Noun2" forms. Bidh agad ri ràdh:

- Bha Eurovision èibhinn
- Bha e blàsta
- Tha e math

all without "a th' ann".


And it's chaidh - Chaidh mi dhan cholaiste

bha mòran biadh againn - without "sinn", because that's already in the "againn" = aig + sinn. You could also say "Dh' ith sinn cus" - we ate too much

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

Thanks for correcting my mistake, I'm always making mistakes now and then with my Gàidhlig but that's life when you are learning a new language.

Mar sin leat an-drasta agus mòran taing.

A-nis, tha mi a' bruidhinn ri Denzil (aka Ben) air MSN.
Tha sinn a' bruidhinn ann an Gaidhlig agus Gaeilige (no Gaidhlig na h-eirinn).

Talking on MSN to Ben. We are talking in Gaelic and Irish.

You're welcome

Halò GunChleoc. :D Ciamar a tha thu an-diugh.

It was me ( Chris ) that said thanks for correcting my mistake. I'm hopefully going to college in Edinburgh to learn Gàidhlig and this will improve my grammar and syntax even more.

Mar sin leat an-drasta agus mòran taing cuideachd.

Mise Cuideachd. Chan do am conbhallach glè mhath ged, agus tha i dìreach cèol a-nis... Peatbog Faeries? Ma tha i am cd ùr(ish), s' toigh leam i. :D

Me too. Their sound wasn't good [technically] though, and it's just music now... Petabog Faeries? If it is their new(ish) CD, I like it.

Yaidh! Tha mi deiseil "Ionad a h-aon" (Ceithir leasanan) de mo chùrsa bho Colaiste na Peairt. An ath - "Ionad 2" (Sia leasanan).

A-nis ged, tha mi ag èisteachd ri Reidio nan Gàidhlig bho Diardaoin. Tha e math dhà-rireabh!

Yay! Finshed Uni One of my course. Next - Part two.
Now, got Thursday's RNG show on. Excellent.


@Ceitidh - Tha an CD ùr aig Peatbog Faeries agam. Tha i ceart gu leòr. Beagan bleh...
I have the CD. It is OK, a bit bleh...

Meal do naidheachd, Alasdair!
Congratulations!

Cha do dh' èisd mise ris an fharpais o chionn 's nach robh mi aig an taigh.
I didn't listen to the contest because I wasn't at home.

Tha mi a' deasachadh a' dhol dhan cleasaichean gaidhealach ann an Carolina a' Tuath.

I am preparing to go to the highland games in North Carolina.
