Name: Kyle Carey
Where are you from?
I am from New Hampshire, in America.
Why did you come to Sabhal Mòr Ostaig?
I spent a year in Cape Breton, at Cape Breton University. That’s where I learnt about Sabhal Mòr Ostaig. I have always had an interest in Gaelic and Celtic music, and that is the reason I came to Sabhal Mòr Ostaig.
What was it like to be living on the Isle of Skye?
I really enjoyed it! It was great to be learning all the time. I was happy to have the opportunity to speak Gaelic out with classes too, and I made some great friends while studying there. The island is so beautiful- that is obvious enough!
What course did you do?
I did Cùrsa Comais.
Why did you choose this course?
I didn’t have much Gaelic at all when I started at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, and Cùrsa Comais was better for me as it focuses on learners who want to gain fluency in the language.
What was the best thing about Sabhal Mòr Ostaig?
The community is very helpful and there is always something to do.
What were your hobbies while you were at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig?
When I wasn’t learning Gaelic, I would play music, sing and learn Gaelic songs. At the weekends, I used to walk and climb mountains around the island, or go out with my friends.
What are you doing now?
I am a professional musician and singer. http://www.kyleannecarey.com
