Forum rules


The purpose of this forum is to provide a place for people who are interested in the Irish language and various Celtic languages to discuss them, to practice them, and to share information about them, particularly (but not exclusively) in the context of traditional music and culture.

This is not a "translation forum," per se, though translation requests may occasionally be honored at the discretion of the moderators. If you're seeking a one-time translation for something like a tattoo, engraving, wedding vow, or other such purpose, we strongly recommend that you visit our friends at ILF: http://irishlearner.awyr.com

http://www.learngaelic.net, a new website for Scottish Gaelic learners, has just been launched. The website is the result of collaboration between Bòrd na Gàidhlig (the Scottish Government's Gaelic quango), BBC Alba, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, and a few other groups. It looks very impressive and comprehensive! There are sections for beginner, intermediate, and advanced learners with links to over 400 video clips with transcripts and accompanying PDF files from the "Speaking Our Language" video series. For those in Scotland, there are sections for pre-school, primary, and secondary Gaelic-medium school pupils, plus a national directory for adult classes. All this and a comprehensive online dictionary and thesaurus plus links gu leor. I'm pretty blown away by it, frankly, and I'm not aware of anything this wide-ranging that's currently available for Irish... Thoir sùil air! Tha mi cinnteach gum bi mi ga chleachdadh gu tric!

Very cool!

Another nice resource is this discussion board:

http://irishlearner.awyr.com/phpBB3/vie ... e5e31c25fc

This dedicated Scottish Gaelic forum was formed at ILF because so many people came to us for Scottish Gaelic translations. It's a great place to discuss learning challenges, grammar, or even to have a conversation in Scottish Gaelic.
