Gaelic adjectives

Unlike English, adjectives in Gaelic are placed after the noun. Adjectives in Gaelic agree with the noun they describe. This means that adjectives that describe a feminine noun have a special form.

Examples for using Gaelic adjectives

an samhradh tioram
the dry summer
an samhradh fuar
the cold summer
an samhradh goirid
the short summer
an samhradh fada
the long summer
an samhradh teth
the hot summer

Great language course

The language is interesting to me because it's an old language and yet very much alive. This a one way to get back to my roots. This course has enabled me to make my first steps in learning Gaelic, and it's also fun to use.

Thank you!

Great Gaelic Course

Great course, great service. With a little delay to arrive in Brazil, I was worried and I emailed them, and they answered me back within just one hour.

Only for earnest learners

I suggest to use it if you have some knowledge of Gaelic, and if you attend a class. TeachMe! builds so called short term memory, so you have to keep at it on a regular basis for the short term to become long term. You can set your own pace (from 8 to 20 prompts per lesson). The length of each session is also variable.

The course is descriptive, and can be somewhat boring, like a body building lesson, but if you have patience you will develop big muscles in no time.

You won't be able to take part in conversation immediately, unless you help yourself with other media. If you´re doing Gaelic, my suggestion is to forget AutoWord mode, and to concentrate on the so called Normal mode, as it's an excellent method to learn spelling, and to develop a sense for the good written word in Gaelic. (Gaelic has got a lot of tricks in spelling, and it's not always consistent).

The drag & drop stories are quite interesting; it's a pity there's no point system for them.

It's a good course to improve yourself (if you only want to learn a few words, and have no knowledge of Gaelic, then try the Alba site of the BBC)

I've done eight hours with TeachMe! Gaelic up to now and I've only found a few of peculiarities (you're supposed to write duin, for man; the speaker says fear, that also means man ; the same is for the plural, you write down daoine and hear fir ).

Customer support is excellent; if you have a problem you receive in no time the right answer.

Good product

It's tough to find anything for Gaelic, but this is a good product. Tons of vocabulary, and it really pushes you to progress very quickly. The best feature is all the pronunciations that you can listen to. Recommended.
