      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

                  Didn't really do much research; the first was frm a quick check on amazon's US site; the second one popped up as an ad on a different website I was on later, I assume as the result of my earlier search.

                  Good luck, if you decide you do want to learn the language.
