Starting from Scratch - Scottish Gaelic

Postby Storydust » 15 Dec 2013, 01:20

Greetings, All!

I'm beginning a study of Scottish Gaelic - from the ground up, absolute zero, 100% beginner's mind.

(http://www.parl.ns.ca/ebooks/sheenas-garden-ebook.htm) !!!

I'll be studying long-distance with an instructor, and my hubby is joining in, but I was wondering if there are any OBODies studying the language? Or perhaps someone who's fluent and kind enough to field the occasional Order/Gaelic related question?

If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to put together a yahoo group (or similar) for learners...

Blessings,
Storydust

The first thing you need to do is to disregard completely what you've been taught about pronunciation of the letters of the alphabet. It does not apply in Gaelic. I started to learn, but on one of those downloads...it just didn't work for me. Clearly, I need a real teacher! LOL

Yes, Summerhawk. I've discovered that the pronunciation of Gaelic will provide me with lots of opportunities to practice ~acceptance~. :D

Happy Sunday,
