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

a' chaileag lag
the weak girl
a' chaileag bhòidheach
the pretty girl
a' chaileag òg
the young girl
a' chaileag chaol
the skinny girl
caileag reamhar
a fat girl

Very well

I really like learning with the program. The whole course is larger than expected and I love it! It is easy to understand the handling and I adore reading the words/ stories while listening to them.

Great Value

I have been using this package to learn Gaelic and find it excellent. The 'Learn Vocabulary' is well presented and easily customised for your own progress. The 'Pronunciation section' is excellent - but I would like to see the addition of the word's meaning in this section.

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!

The Irish program is great. It's useful to double check what I already know and expand on what I don't. It's easy to use. I enjoy it very much.
