About

Our Zoom classes will help you learn to write, read, speak and listen to Scottish Gaelic with confidence.

From January 2022, Zoom classes for A1 Absolute Beginners  will run twice weekly in 8 week blocks. Classes will have no more than 20 learners per group, ensuring that your experience is enriched by personalised tutor-learner engagement.

A2 Beginners will commence in January 2022 for those who have completed the A1 Absolute Beginners course successfully. 

There is a group specifically for native Gaels who have not used their language for some time and who wish to brush up on their skills. 

We host a number of conversation circles, some with semi-structured scripts for learners, which are listed on the Courses page. 

There will be additional Gaelic Cultural Studies workshops and short courses available throughout the summer should you wish to consolidate your learning in a relaxed and supportive setting.
