As we are an American owned site, there aren't a huge amount of folks from Scotland on here, but welcome!

Hi and welcome.

Gaelic is a very difficult language for many native English speakers. Do you have access to proper classroom tuition?

Thanks. I just think it's a beautiful language and becoming rare for people to speak, let alone hear. So I will be checking out places that offer it. But it is not not offered here in tn

Very rare - even in Scotland. There are only a handful of native speakers left. Why not try a basic phrasebook and CD (you need a CD, believe me!!). I'm sure you'll find something on the likes of Amazon.

In fact here's one: Amazon.com: Complete Gaelic with Two Audio CDs: A Teach Yourself Guide (Teach Yourself Language) (9780071748155): Boyd Robertson, Iain Taylor: Books

the number of gaelic speakers though small (57000 at the last scottish census) their numbers are growing constantly and theres gaelic schools popping up all over the place.

its a bit of a revival
