Scottish Gaelic (Gàdhlig)

We really need to add a Gàidhlig course to Duolingo because the language is dying out. And after seeing the success of Irish and Welsh I think this could really work. And Gàdhlig uses the Latin script so there is no need to learn new letters. And it should be easy to make a Gàdhlig course because Irish and Gàdhlig share a very similar structure. Please please show your support.

"We really need to add a Gàidhlig course to Duolingo because the language is dying out. "

Every age group under 30 has seen an increase in speakers in the last decade, and there are almost 3,000 children being taught in schools which teach in nothing but Gaelic. It's growing, albeit slowly.

It's not dying, but it is endangered.

I agree. Hope it happens some time soon. I agree the Gadhlig and Gaelige are gramatically similar. Would help us understand the language even better if we got more exposure to the gadhlig. have not come across much on line but stand to be corrected on this one and please let me know where to go for finding stuff in Gadhlig if anyone knows

Until that day comes, you can try the 'Say Something In...' series for Manx, Welsh and Cornish.

It's an unusual and highly effective method. I'd recommend it to anybody.
