Perhaps you are thinking of visiting Scotland, you live in Scotland or you are a big Outlander fan and you are interested in learning some Scottish Gaelic words, phrases, sayings and pronunciation. Scottish Gaelic is a language that I am very passionate about and I was to make it as accessible as possible for beginners!
I have started a new playlist on Youtube to help those with no experienceLearn Scottish Gaelic
In this video, we learn how to say ‘hello, how are you?’
Hello – Halò
How are you? – Ciamar a tha thu?
How are you? – Dè do chor?
I have added phonetics in the video to help you with the pronunciation of the words. These are based on the sounds of the words as they are spoken rather than the sound of the words as they are written. I hope that this is of some benefit to you in your learning of Scottish Gaelic.
I was born in the Western Isles but grew up in Aberdeen so I have an East/West coast Gaelic language hybrid going on.
Dialects are a thing, even in Gaelic.
I have decided to start a new section to my channel which will focus on learning Scottish Gaelic (with phonetics) to help you with the Scottish Gaelic pronunciation as there are a lot of silent letters which can trip people up when learning.
I would love to help anyone looking to learn some Scottish Gaelic and hope this will be a welcome addition to the Gaelic/Gaidhlig videos already out there!
