Listen and Learn Some Gaelic

It’s Saturday, December 8, 2018, and time for Foreign Languages at ClickSchooling!

 

Recommended Website:

Speaking Our Language: Gaelic

(www.smo.uhi.ac.uk/gaidhlig/ionnsachadh/bac/)

Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

This older website is fun for all, although younger children will need some assistance.

What a great way to learn Irish! Read the phrases in each lesson, listen to the audio (using the .wav sound button), and look at the phonetic transcription, all at the same time! Fanciful cartoon characters illustrate each phrase, so smile while you learn! Each lesson also contains notes about usage, as well as exercises to help you see how much you have learned.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTES ON NAVIGATION OF THIS SITE: At the end of each test, DO NOT click “Submit” as it will take you to the wrong page. Instead, use your browser’s “Back” arrow to go back to the page with the lessons menu and select the next lesson.

Other than a few small mishaps, which I’m sure are the fault of some mischievous leprechaun, this is a very simple and useful site for learning some Gaelic.

And, in the words of the young laddie on the first page of each lesson, “Gur math a theid leibh.” Translation: Good luck!
