Ar Guthan - Our Voices

Ar Guthan.jpg One of my first Gaelic teachers told me that songs and poetry are a great way to learn vocabulary, idoms, and the sounds of a language, and she was right! I'll be playing an hour of my favorite Gaelic songs, old and new, on Ar Guthan (Our Voices) on Tuesday, February 24th, at 7:00 pm ...

Re: Learning styles

I've done a bit of everything you mention, Victor, and it's all been helpful. The best advice I was given was to use what I was learning as much as I could. Every day. Listen and speak, read and write. Yes, you need grammar and vocabulary, but you need to use those for them to become part of you. I ...

Giglets?

If you're interested in Gaelic e-books, take a look at Am Bann Breac , a translation of the Sherlock Holmes classic short story, The Speckled Band , available at http://www.giglets.net. While I'm certainly looking forward to more original Gaelic books becoming available in electronic format, it's go...

Re: Has ACGA run it's useful course/life?

As membership secretary, people often contact me to see if there are other learners in their area. Unfortunately, they are often the lone Gaelic learner in the wilderness, so to speak. Almost all have computers, but not everyone feels they have the technical savey to set themselves up on SKPYE. Per...
