    From another beginner....

    Try amazon.com

    I bought me there a cassette-based course called "Colloquial Scottish Gaelic" by Katherine M. Sparado and Katie Graham. It has a textbook and two cassettes. It is very well structured, easy to follow and explains a lot of things in addition.

    Or try to get it via http://www.routledge.com
    Routledge is the publisher.

    Good luck and a lot of patience!

      hello Shonagh

      Just a quick post now - and I hope to come back with a better reply later. Have a look at this link. Oh, and perhaps look through older threads in this column, as they might help you.

              Yes. The "TEach Yourself" series of language books published by Hodder and Stoughton has Gaelic. Also, Hugo's Scottish Gaelic in Three Months is good for the grammar side of things, and then there is "Colloquial Gaelic" which I hear is very easy to use and has a lot of listening material to go with it. These are all good DIY courses to get you started.

              There is also an older series of books called "Can seo" ("say this") but I don't know if they are still in print. "Speaking Our Language" uses CD-ROM, and videos as well as books. It's very popular, but there is a lot to buy so it is the most expensive option.

                As already recommended above, "Colloquial Scottish Gaelic" by Katie Grahame and Katherine M. Sparado. Textbook with two cassettes, really good. Available via amazon.com within two weeks.
