Sgilean Cànain/Gaelic for Fluent Speakers

What is special about this course?

Grammar is unavoidable – we use it every time we speak or write, even in the simplest of sentences.  If the thought of writing an email, or a report in Gaelic fills you with uncertainty – then fear not, this course will help you understand the rules of Gaelic spelling and syntax.   This course is aimed at fluent speakers, or advanced learners who wish to improve their Gaelic literacy skills.
