Scots Gaelic Beginner seeks your sage input...

Postby Nine Hazelnuts » 02 Aug 2006, 07:20

Good evening.

I'm trying to get a Scots Gaelic beginners' group started to provide a bit of mutual support and fun for those of us who are just beginning to learn the language.

Do any of you have experience with Beag air Bheag, the BBC online program for absolute beginners?  It's on Radio nan Gaidheal's website at:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/alba/fogh ... ndex.shtml
It looks fun and interactive, and best of all, I can get to the word or phrase I want without having to constantly rewind the ole "Teach Yourself" tape.  I very much appreciate your ideas and suggestions as a few of us get started.

Tapadh leat.

Rowan,
Sorry to take so long to get back to you on this. I have not used the BBC online stuff. We are using the Sabhal Mo\r Ostaig "Speaking Our Language" video tapes. Actually, I mastered them to DVD to make it easier. They are quite good for learning the spoken language.

My problem is more the grammer. Calder's A Gaelic Grammer is a great help but somewhat obtuse. What is really needed is a dictionary that declines all the nouns and stuff.

I have a couple of his books here somewhere, but with over 4000 of them around the house, it is getting hard to find the one I am looking for sometimes. I need a librarian!

Rowan,

I am a Gaelic beginner and I am using Beag air Bheag as one of my spoken-word resources. I find the BBC instruction very helpful so far and like that I can hear and repeat the sounds of words or phrases as much or as little as I need to.

I have an acquaintance who participates in a Scots Gaelic immersion weekends and classes in Seattle, WA USA. You and your group might want to communicate with that group and share some resources since you are in Portland, OR. The group is called Slighe nan Gaidheal and has a website at: http://www.slighe.com/.
