An Introduction to Scots Gaelic

Newton Stewart Centre, Newton Stewart
Saturday 8th July 2017 / Doors 4:00pm

Learn Scots Gaelic with Gaelic speaker and local tutor Andrew Wilson from Wigtown who we're delighted is supporting us again this year by facilitating another Introduction to Scots Gaelic language workshop.

Gaelic is our oldest surviving native language, the language of some of our songs, stories and the language of the people who gave Scotland it's name.  Although it has not been spoken in Galloway for 400 years,  80% of our place names were in this language.

Why not acquaint yourself with this part of our heritage?  Starting with some simple phrases and what some words mean, the workshop will look at how to introduce yourself and say where you come from.  Information on where, and how you can learn more, and what on-line resources now exist for would be Gaelic learners.
