Ancient languages are hard to learn - as there are few native speakers. Gaelic is Scotland's ancient language, the British tried to stamp it out after Culloden in 1746, but it has persisted to this day. Now the street signs are all in Gaelic, and it is being taught in schools as well. The letters you know already, but the way they sound is so much harder. Here's the way to learn it - with a book and audio, so you can hear it spoken as well as learning the written words. All the essentials of grammar are explained, there is also a guide to pronunciation and a mini Gaelic-English dictionary. Written by the head Professor of Gaelic at the University of Glasgow, Roibeard O Maolalaigh. and Iain MacAonghius, a lecturer for many years at the University of Edinburgh. 216 page paperback with an audio download with 12 lessons.
