I did the HNC Cùrsa Comais through Inverness College, then the HND at SMO and am currently doing my 3rd year which is a BA in Gaelic and North Atlantic Studies.

I haven't decided yet if I want to do the 4th year Honors Degree or look or work. One of our tutors asked us yesterday what we wanted to do after we finished the BA and basically said we have 3 choices, continue at SMO with the BA (Hons), go into teaching (1 year teacher course at Jordanhill/Aberdeen) or go into some sort of Gaelic Development job.

As neoni said, SMO is an amazing place and there is always plenty to do.

Inverness doesn't currently have a Gaelic department. After it was closed Iain MacIlleChiar moved on to teaching at Dingwall Academy and Padruig Moireach moved on the work for the BBC and Tobar an Dualchas. There was a rumour that it would be opening again this year but I haven't heard anymore about it.

Off topic but I have to say this was an unmitigated disaster. Thanks to Iain and Padruig I came away from Cùrsa Comais with enough Gaelic to go onto the degree course at Aberdeen as a mature student. This is not an option available to people in the Inverness area now and it needs rectifying as soon as posible! :olc:

Canar "Das ist viel einfacher als Englisch, daß eine so trockene/langweilige Sprache ist."

Is toil leamsa Beurla co-dhiù :lol:

Carson a bhith an aghaidh na Beurla?

Chan eil càil ceàrr leis a' Bheurla fhèin. 'S e cànan breagha, sùbailte, feumail a th' ann.

'S e cànan dìreach cho èifeachdach ris a' Ghàidhlig a th' ann. Chan urrainn dhi càil a dhèanamh mun eachdraidh no mun neart aice.

Tha e nas fheàrr a bhith dà-chànanach na aon-chànanach.

Cha bu choir a bhith gràin aig a' chànan oirnn dìreach air sgàth's gur e dragh oirnn a th' anns a' chuid de nan daoine Sassannach a bhios a' bruidhinn cus Beurla anns a' Ghàidhealtachd, no a bhios iad an aghaidh na Gàidhlige, neo ar sgàth 's gu bheil a' Bheurla cho cudromach agus laidir anns an t-saoghal, no dìreach anns a' Ghàidhealtachd.

Chan eil math meadhan suas teachdaireadh agus mheasgadh.

Don't shoot the messenger! 8-)

Fiu 's nuair an e a' Bheurla a th' ann!

Seadh. Thòisich mi nam Bheurla ionnsachadh nuair a bha mi sia bliadhna a dh'aois, agus air sgàth 's gu bheil mi às a' Ghearmailt, cha b' aithne dhomh air a Ghàidhlig idir aig an àm sin. Tha tòrr de leabhraichean na Beurla agam agus tha gaol agam air a' chànan siud fhathast. Is fhèarr leam a' Ghàidhlig an-dràsda, ach chan eil a' Bheurla grannda ann an dòigh sam bith saoilidh mise :)

Tha mi nam Ghàidhlig ionnsachadh gu math luath o chionn 's gun tòisich mi nam chànan cèin ionnsachadh nuair a bha mi òg, agus 's e a' Bheurla a bh'ann. Cò shaoileadh e, a' Bheurla a' cumail taic ris a' Ghàidlig! :lol:

Cha d' thuirt mi gun robh. Dhomhsa 's e is gu bheil Beurla aig tòrr dhaoine agus tha i cho pailte gus tha mi smaoineachadh nach e cànan sònraichte a th' innte idir. Tha mi toilichte gu bheil i agam ach tha mi tòrr nas cofhurtaile agus toilichte a bhi bruidhinn Gàidhlig. Glè annaibh a bhios mi seinn sa Bheurla air beulaibh daoine can ach 's caomh leam a bhi seinn sa Gàidhlig luchd-èisteachd ann no às.

Gu dearbh tha. Tha beagan Fraingis agam cuideachd.

Chan eil mi cinnteach carson a sgrìobh thu sin, bhiodh "Thòisich mi ag ionnsachadh a' Bheurla / a' Ghàidhlig" tòrr nas fheàrr :)
