Ailig Bhalois**This course is now full.  Please ask about the waiting-list.**

We are pleased to be re-introducing Beartas Cainnt to short courses, another learning opportunity for Gaelic speakers who have completed some or all of Sabhal Mòr Ostaig Gaelic levels 8, 9, 10, or the Flodigarry Community course.

Beartas Cainnt is designed for advanced students who would like to enrich their understanding of the Gaelic language, and will concentrate on the vernacular as it is spoken in native communities. This will include proverbs, idiomatic expressions, metaphors and vocabulary, which otherwise might not be encountered in a formal learning environment.

Your group will also work on creative language skills, with particular emphasis on discussion and application of new expressions in dynamic situations. Students are encouraged to contribute their own language experiences and interests to the course for group development.

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 on: for advice if unsure about their level of fluency.

The course will be led by Alec Dòmhnallach.
