Re: Learning styles

I started with 'Can Seo' back in the 1980s (alas I didn't stick with it), and since then I went on to take a course at Atlantic Gaelic Academy (AGA), as well as using 'Speaking Our Language', 'Teach Yourself Gaelic', 'Gàidhlig Troimh Chòmhradh ' and Muriel Fisher's Gaelic courses, plus any other stu...

04 - Cha Bu Mhiste Sinn Leabhar Na Trì (ANA Winter 2013)

In our fourth reprint, Cam MacRae talks about Graphic Novels. A bheil sibh measail air nobhailean grafaigeach? Nuair a thòisich leabhraichean grafaigeach a’ nochdadh air sgeilpichean an leabharlainn anns an robh mi ag obair mu dheich bliadhna air ais, cha robh ùidh agam annta idir. Uill, bha mi air...

Outlander.

In news that probably won't actually be 'news' to the fans of the books, the Starz Network is broadcasting a new series based on the books of Diana Gabaldon. The interesting part in this, at least for me, is they they are using Gaelic in the show, but not providing translations in subtitles. That ou...

I came across an online Gaelic course, one of many language courses running on http://memrise.com/. Mostly, it's an interactive web application which uses audio files and multiple choice to help you learn a language. The multiple choice element uses words or pictures (or both) and on the whole, seem...

I have Seasons 1, 3 and 4 workbooks in hardcopy and a PDF...

That said, whatever method is chosen, let's examine the practicalities. (DISCLAIMER: This is based on my own experien...
