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 have a special form if the noun that they describe is in the plural.

Examples for using Gaelic adjectives

na seann bhoireannaich
the old women
na boireannaich àlainn
the beautiful women
na boireannaich bheaga
the small women
na boireannaich òga
the young women

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the performance of the software. For example, before getting the course, I had thought that pronounciation in Gaelic was next to impossible.

In parallel, I watched some Youtube videos and these align with the software. I had so far only the demo version for testing, but am already convinced by this already. Especially since there is hardly any material from German-Gaelic (or English-Gaelic).more...

Impressive

Although it is early days with this course, I have not found fault. This was actually a present for someone else, but after trying it myself, I have kept it.
The auto learn feature is brilliant, making sure that you have grasped one level before moving you on to the next. I will happily recommend this course and linguashop, who are very friendly and very efficient, to any anybody.

The voice recognition is not completely accurate, but other than that it was really great.
