Who Wants to Speak Gàdhlig?

Ceud mìle fàilte

This is a fun toy that a few of us discovered a while back. You can head to LearnGaelic to start speaking Scottish Gaelic (or Gàdhlig) with free, interactive, online lessons.

The intro lessons include audio and illustrations, starting with food, physical descriptions, and (of course) the weather. Over 100 words for rain, apparently. It’ll also help if you ever visit the Outer Hebrides and want to ask a native whether the forecast is for a drizzle or monsoon.

Once you get the basics down, the site has options for using and watching Gaelic and building up your grammar skills. Before you know it, balls will be talked through all in Gàdhlig, so get going with those lessons!

Sealbh math dhuit!
