Latha Buidhe Bealltainn sona dhuibh! Take a peek at the cèilidh.

Às deidh dà bhliadhna de thachartasan a bhith air loidhne, chruinnich sinn aig taigh-cèilidh air Latha Buidhe Bealltainn. Seadh, bha an t-uisge ann. Abair tuil! Agus ruith a h-uile duine a-staigh leis a’ bhiadh. Ach chòrd an latha agus an caidreachas ris a h-uile duine.

After two years of events being online, we gathered at a cèilidh house on the first day of May. Sure, it rained. What a downpour! And everyone ran inside with the food. But everyone enjoyed the day and the company.

Take a peek at what happened. And join us the next time around.

Language Village Schedule Spring to Winter

the-lv-crew-day-2

Thigibh don Bhaile Chànain!

In 2019, Sgoil Gàidhlig Bhaile an Taigh Mhóir kicked off The Language Village, an interactive, engaging space at festivals in which Scottish Gaelic is being spoken, people are being introduced to the language, and everyone can take part in singing, learning, and other activities – from new learners to fluent speakers.

This year we will be at several festivals.  Check out the list below for our current stops.  We’ll update it as we go. At each one, we will run a variety of language activities throughout the festival designed to appeal to children as well as adults, including sessions on Gaelic poetry, Gaelic song, and introductory Gaelic classes, plus a participatory waulking song session, displays of Scottish Gaelic history and culture, an area for games and other activities in which you can learn and use some Gaelic, and impromptu poetry, music, and conversation.

Nach tig thu?
Please come!
We’d love to see you, learn with you, and celebrate with you .

So far, will be at:

Have you wanted to learn Gaelic and put it off? Hear us out. This year is a great year to start or to re-start. No need to wonder any longer about a phrase in Outlander, or drive confused in Scotland, or wish you could sing along.
Have you come up to a birthday or a wedding and reached out to someone for a toast in Gaelic then struggled over how to pronounce it? Well, never again.

But, maybe you think you’re not good at languages? Shy about struggling through the pronunciations?
No worries. Remember:
 ‘S fhearr leam Gàidhlig bhriste na Beurla ghlàn.
(Broken Gaelic is better than clever English.)
