A Comprehensive Course to Learn Scottish Gaelic!

Developed in Glasgow by John M. Paterson

First published by the Gaelic League of Scotland, Gaelic Made Easy comprises 43 lessons divided among four booklets, each accompanied by audio recorded by native speakers. The lessons begin with an interesting section covering grammatical usage, and include vocabulary and readings in Gaelic. This method makes communication in Gaelic much easier than usual.

About the Language
Scottish Gaelic, often simply called Gaelic (Gàidhlig), is a Celtic language native to Scotland. Like Modern Irish and Manx, Scottish Gaelic emerged from Middle Irish, and thus ultimately descended from Old Irish. Gaelic is classed as an Indigenous Language under the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages, and has about 57,000 speakers, primarily in Scotland, with scattered communities in Canada and elsewhere. Efforts to revive the language are being made.
