Gaelic Learners programme presented by Rhoda MacDonald. Cothrom Gàidhlig ionnsachadh le Rhoda NicDhòmhnaill. I’ve decided to replace the episodes with better quality versions of this series. This is part 1 of 2. To discuss anything to do with any celtic language, please visit www.celtography.eu

  • cbabick:

    I’m American and not at all of Irish descent, but I love this language for so many reason and am trying to learn it. I wish more Americans would try to learn it also.

    @scotland1989able scots-gaelic is more similair to old irish than it is to irish-gaelic

    This series is a great introduction to Gaelic. I have watched a few parts and can now almost hold a conversation without making myself look like a fool.
    As with many Irish Americans my family came from Ireland long ago and did not return. I would like to return and be able to speak where my family left off, even though very few people there still speak it(25%).
    I believe in these tough times Ireland needs it people back to help and make peace with those that lived thru the famine and troubles.

  • allisonforfornsed:

    This doesn’t look like better quality to me. I love this series!

  • m98m99:

    IM VERY MUCH AGAINST THE IDEA OF NATIONALISM BUT THAT DOESNT MEAN I AM GOING TO GIVE UP ON MY 3000 YEARS OLD CULTURE AND LANGUAGE JUST BECAUSE ENGLISH BECOME INTERNATIONAL . ENGLISH IS THE NEWEST ANS LEAST PERFECT LANGUAGE IN TERMS OF THE GRAMMAR . IT LOOK LIKE YOU ARE GOING TO PARTY AND ASKING YOUR NEIGHBOUR ; CAN YOU PLEASE LEND ME YOUR 1972 FORD ? WHILE YOU ALREDY HAVE MERCEDES . AND IT WOUL BE THE SAME IF I WANT GIVE UP ON MY LANGUAGE ( TURKISH ) .

  • david880brown:

    @m98m99 I agree with you, I would always say that I am Welsh, and would be Insulted to be called english

  • GaeilgeSpraoi:

    @m98m99 Well that’s a grand example of English chauvinism. It’s view that if you speak english therefore knowing and learning other languages is irrelevant and if somebody doesn’t know English then they’re seen as uneducated and backwards. Well shame on those Irish people who are ready to throw away their culture at the drop of a hat! It angers me so because many brave and valiant people fought for our freedom and cultural expression. Grr it angers me too… :/

  • m98m99:

    @GaeilgeSpraoi well its very nice . in regard to your question , im working with mostly irish here in australia and thats why they think . they dont even want to talk about language . they believe , the english is international language and the past is past .
    any way very nice hear that some people are keeping their legacy alive .

  • GaeilgeSpraoi:

    @m98m99 Have you heard any Irish people say they’re the same as English? I’m Irish and most I know would state from the outset that they’re Irish if there were ever any confusion, well I certainly would! I know that there are many who say they can’t speak Irish. Well actually I used to hate the language due to school but two years ago, I started learning it again and I love it! Now I’m in the Basque Country and the people will state they’re not Spanish but Basque and want to learn Basque! hehe

  • m98m99:

    isnt it disappointing when you see a nation with a 3-4 thousands years old culture and LANGUAGE , now hardly you find a single person who can speak his or her heritage language . instead even most of the irish and specialy scottish,s when you ask them where you from they say ; oh we from england we are the same .
    makes my blood boil what do you mean we are same ? you were there far before the anglosaxons take over your country and culture and language and traditions and……..

  • GaeilgeSpraoi:

    Oh haha tá sé an Ghaeilge na h Alban! Is maith liom í! Go hálainn, an theaga agus an tír! Tá sí an-chósúil leis an Ghaeilge na hÉireann. D’fhéidir mé a thuiscint a lán go bhfuil siad ag labhairt. Na theangacha ceilteach go brách! 😀 😀 😀

  • plaid4u:

    @coteof The English? 99%+ of English people could not care less about Scots. And I mean that in a good way. Don’t blame us for what politicians and royalty have done.

  • shulmannicole:

    OMG…. ta pleff !!! lol tnx … (:

  • sleddog71:

    I am the sixth-generation born in U.S., but my family (Wright/MacIntyre) came here from Scotland. I have no practical reason to learn Gaelic, yet, I feel that I must do it, for reasons I do not know. If it matters to me, then it must surely matter to enough other people- that it will stay alive.
