I always like to start with learning the pronunciation of a language, because when you read it you always hear it in your head, and it's hard to unlearn your mistakes once you've got it wrong. The Gaelic sound system is quite elaborate. So, let's just start with the language melody. Don't try to understand what people are saying yet. All Gaelic words (except for a few recent imports like buntàta = potato) have their stress on the first syllable. Also, you don't raise your voice at the end of a question sentence. Instead of this, you use special words at the beginning of a senctence to indicate that you are asking a question. We'll see those pretty soon when we start on Beag air Bheag.
