Learning Gaelic

I started to learn gaelic few days ago. I had learn a few new words in here. However I find it difficult in speaking part. Are there any way to learn Gaelic's speaking? There are no one in my place speak or know Gaelic.

Omniglot has some useful phrases in Irish with sound recordings. Practising them might help you. http://www.omniglot.com/language/phrases/irish.php

Your profile says you are in Hong Kong. There is the Hong Kong Gaelic Football Club. Some people might know Irish there. http://www.gaa.hk/

By the way, Irish people like to call the language Irish rather than Gaelic.

Good luck!

teanglann.ie has a great pronunciation database in all three of the main dialects: http://www.teanglann.ie/en/fuaim/

Irish spelling seems very counterintuitive at first--it's just very different from most other languages--but once you learn it you'll see it's mostly regular. (There are a few annoying exceptions, but it wouldn't be any fun otherwise, no?)

cheers mate, I will have a go with the website. I somehow find it difficult to pronouns the words out. By the way I was originally planning to learn the Highland Gaelic, however I didn't find it in here, that is the reason why I am learning Irish now. :)

I was going for the Scottish version too, inspired by Outlander, but I find that Irish is close enough that I can get excited for recognizing some Gaelic things in the books, in both words and grammar.
