We are pleased to be introducing our course on Pronunciation Skills to the Short Course Programme, another learning opportunity for Gaelic speakers who have completed some or all of SMO levels 9, 10 and the Flodigarry Community course.

Pronunciation Skills is designed for advanced level students who would like to enrich their pronunciation of the Gaelic language, and will concentrate on the vernacular as it is spoken in native communities.

Students should be able to speak, read and write Gaelic at a fairly advanced level, as this course will enhance both oral fluency and literacy. Students should contact the Short Courses team directly for advice if unsure about their level of fluency.

The course will be led by John Urquhart who has taught at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig for many years. His classes have entertained both staff and full-time students, educating them on subjects such as idiomatic expressions, traditional sayings, vocabulary and short stories, and offering opportunities for conversations at an advanced level.

Raised in Harris, and a long-time resident of the Isle of Skye, John is not only a teacher and minister, but also an artist, writer and broadcaster. You can hear him on Rèidio nan Gàidheal, the welcoming host of the widely-respected programme for Gaelic learners,, Beag Air Bheag.
