|Would you like to learn more about Gaelic and the culture and heritage of Perth and Kinross? There is a wealth of heritage relating to the Gaelic language including well known songs, stories, myths, legends and a landscape full of Gaelic names. Gaelic awareness sessions are being held so that those interested can become aware of the importance of the Gaelic language to Scotland.
The sessions are presented by Roddy Maclean, an Inverness based Gaelic journalist and broadcaster. He is an author of publications on Highland place names and often works with adult Gaelic learners.
There are two sessions available to book – 5 July at Glenearn Community Campus 7-9pm and 6 July at Breadalbane Community Campus 7-9pm.
You will learn about the origins of the Gaelic language and its importance to Scotland and the Scottish identity and the unique attributes of Gaelic culture. You will gain an appreciation of the issues affecting minority language revitalisation – globally and locally as well as the advantages of bilingualism and multilingualism. Find out about the differences, and similarities, between Gaelic and English orthography, and how each language has affected the other.
You will also learn to speak a little Gaelic!
