Scottish Gaelic for Beginners (A1) AUSTRALIA & UK
We've timed this set of classes to suit Australian Gaelic Learners, but they are equally suited to UK and EU learners who can attend during work-hours.
Our Zoom classes will help you learn to read, write, speak and listen to Scottish Gaelic with confidence.
From late July to the end of early September 2021, Zoom classes for A1 Absolute Beginners will run twice weekly for an 8 week term.
The twice-weekly 90 minute classes will have no more than 16 learners per group, ensuring that your experience is enriched through personalised tutor-learner engagement.
During that time we will take you through Gaelic phonics for effective pronunciation; basic language structure and parts of speech in the present tense; and, a number of useful topics to allow you to ask and answer simple questions through Gaelic as part of everyday conversation.
Each week's learning is structured around a key language step:
90 minute long Class 1 introduces the week's concept with many supporting examples across the skills of reading, listening, writing and speaking.
Then, to help you to consolidate your learning there will be a number of reading, writing and listening exercises to complete in your own time (should you wish).
90 minute long Class 2, later in the week, focuses on deepening your understanding of the week's language step through more language practice within interesting and relevant cultural contexts.
Recorded versions of the lessons will be available to help you to review your learning and to let you catch up with any missed classes.
Dedicated Quizlet sets will help you to revise through app based games, listening exercises and self-assessment quizzes.
You will receive a zoom link and joining instructions via email once you have booked your place and payment has been confirmed.
A detailed course outline will be delivered in advance of your first session.
This course will run with a minimum of 8 learners and a maximum of 16. It is also suitable for those wishing to return to Gaelic use in everyday settings.
Midday in the UK (BST) is the start time, running 90 minutes on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 8 weeks. Times will vary across Australia but we hope that this accommodates all your needs.
