Schedule Released for Scottish Gaelic Immersion Weekend

We are drawing close to our 4 – 6 December Scottish Gaelic Immersion Weekend, Gàidhlig san Taigh-sholais – Gaelic in the Lighthouse (though we are online and not actually at the lighthouse this year)  We are looking forward to a great event.  There will be three classes (beginner and intermediate tracks) running with three great teachers, plus a Saturday night cèilidh, and three presentations focused on different aspects of Scottish Gaelic culture – The Faery Tradition, The Storytelling Tradition, and Religion in Gaelic Culture)

There are still caps on the number of registrants per class, but since we are online we can accommodate more than we could otherwise. If you are interested in joining us, check out the full description here, then write to us at sgoilgaidhlig@gmail.com and we’ll send you the registration link.
