If I can't get home to Scotland to attend a course, maybe I'll help organize one..dammit! :D

Some fellow AGA Beginner-year students and I are looking into the possibility of planning a one- or two-day event, most likely in June and most likely to be held in Richmond, Virginia. This location was chosen primarily because it is pretty central our wee group (mostly Virginia and Maryland-based), and because it opens up the possibility to allow folks from North Carolina to attend (it's not that far away).

Target audience would be beginner and lower-intermediate, and if we could garner enough interest, perhaps hold some introductory sessions for complete beginners. At this time, we're thinking of this as being a local event, but if it garners enough interest, who knows...

It's very early days yet, and firm details are thin on the ground, but I'll post more news as and when we figure it out.

Edit: I just wanted to add that the emphasis would be on speaking Gaelic, rather than grammar (beyond the basics).

There's no group as such; it's just a bunch of us who are on the same AGA course who happen to live relatively close.

I do know that there is a Gaelic learners group in the Tidewater area, and I'll try and get some information for you on that.
