This course is ideal for intermediate learners who wish to improve their conversation skills. The course is tutored by Muriel Fisher, whose fun and light-hearted approach to teaching makes learning Gaelic a relaxed and natural experience.
This one-day course consists of two parts, 14.30 – 16.30 and 17.00 – 19.00
Conversation sessions recap all the new vocabulary learnt along the way and practise them using different conversation skills. The kind of topics discussed during the course may include nature, social interests and daily island life amongst others. It is intended that students will build up a repertoire of new words and phrases which will give students the confidence to have fuller and more detailed conversations.
