Introduction to Irish GaelicSTART: 29 July 2019
END: 02 August 2019
COST (STUDENT): £180
This course is directed at newcomers to the Irish language who approach the language as Gaelic speakers. Much of the work in this course will be conversational, starting with the basics of the Irish language as you would find in An Sruth www2.smo.uhi.ac.uk/gaidhlig/faclair/sruth/ .
This course will also be taking a look at traditional Irish songs, proverbs and poetry to get a sense of the history and the culture behind the language itself.
Rody Gorman has been working with both the Gaelic and the Irish language for many years, as a poet and an editor, particularly for the Irish and Scottish Gaelic magazine An Guth. By the end of the week participants will be encouraged to show of their skills and write a small piece in Gaeilge if they wish. Lots of fun is sure to be had on this course!
