flittin

When a wis a wee bairn, a thocht thit flittin wis the richt wye tae ettle at biggin yersel in the warld as I wuild flit aboon frae north tae sooth an keek aw kinna differin fowks an cultures, Sooth Africae and Cumbernaud alang wae Inglish airts an Fife. Were er we landet, a new accent dinted ma lugs and I had tae tak tent tae copie it so thit bi the time I wis a muckle loon, Id maistert whit wey tae copie accents frae fremmit tungs.
Noo Im in heich Germanie and ilka day I listen tae Guido Kretschman an sic spakkers spikkin awa in wyes thit a immitate wayoot thinkin. Thon his meant thit whin lairnin Gaelic, I wis pit intae a stramash wae ither lairners, is they wuild raither focus on graimmar nor the voice.
The voice his ayewyes been the focus o ma lairnin as leids are spakken raither nor read oot, an thons whit wye Im ettlin fir tae braiden ma accents intae leids the day.
Whin I wis telt aboot the disasters whaurbi lairners o Gaelic wur pit intae airts whaubi they wuild be bidin wi native spikkers an speir quaistions aboon genitives an ither keekh thit faimlies hid nivvur kent they yaiset, I cuild unnerstaunt whit wye no, an thon his strengthent ma ain resolve fir tae hoy the buiks awa and listen wae ma lug tae the tung as it pronounces raither nor read aloud the wurds o academics in Embra.
Aiblins thons the wye fur Scots tae. The fermer kens whit wye tae big a sentence wayoot an instruction manual frae a heich heidyin and thons ma ain model fur active participation in the yaise o leids.
