Other Online Resources
If you're in the UK, you can watch Gaelic TV online.
There are more learning resources on the BBC site, e.g. An Litir Bheag
for relative beginners and Litir do Luchd-Ionnsachaidh
for advanced learners. You can download MP3 files and the corresponding text as PDF. At Aig Cridhe ar Ciùil
, you can listen to Gaelic music; written lyrics are provided. I always found music a very convenient and fun way to practice my pronunciation, so give it a try.
Seo teacsa 'na chainnt ann an Gàidhlig. Gus èisteachd ri demo, tagh "Ceitidh (Gaelic, Scotland)" - feumaidh tu sgroladh sìos air an duilleag 's an earrann Gaelic a lorg - sgrìobh no cuir ann an teacsa agad an uairsin agus brùth air a' phutan cluiche.

This is an occasional blog about books and websites that are helping the author to learn Scottish Gaelic.
The BBC's Gaelic language radio station. Go to "Èist a-rithist" to listen. I suggest you do this a lot, even if you don't understand a word, just let it run in the background. It will help you get used to the patterns of the language, even if you don't pay any attention. Over time, you will learn a lot without having to expend any extra effort.
Students of Gaelic use different textbooks and this table makes it easier to find similar topics from different books, especially since most of them do not have good indexes. Different books may use different terms for the same thing and this table tries to reconcile them while respecting the individual choices of the authors.
