Wishing for a Scottish Gaelic course

I've just skimmed through the discussion posts, are there any further updates on a possible Scottish Gaelic course? It's a language I'd really like to learn. I have other resources like a digital textbook, audio files, and other websites. Yet I'd like to have it on my phone on the go for when I'm out somewhere. Just for practice. How many others are still hoping for a Scottish Gaelic course like me? lol

There is Irish on duo of course, but I have a higher percentage of Scottish ancestry compared to Ireland, and have a lot of pride for my Scottish Heritage!

[GUIDE] I would like a new course: What should I do?


I'd love to study Scottish Gaelic on here as well, Cassidy. Like you, I have quite a bit of Scottish ancestry. I've already begun using some audio courses from Colloquial and Teach Yourself to get used to the sound and pronunciation of Scottish Gaelic. It's a beautiful sounding language from a beautiful country, and wouldn't it be great to study it here on Duolingo. Earlier this year I got through the Irish course. Irish is also a beautiful language, and the course on here is very good. I still have much to learn from it, and continue my daily practice. Irish and Scottish Gaelic have many similarities, and studying Irish has made it much easier for me to understand what I'm learning in Scottish Gaelic.


Hi cassidyWoo9,

As Speir_ pointed out, see this short guide about “How to suggest a course”.
Mainly, from Help Center article "How can I suggest a new language course?:

If you want to make a [course] suggestion, we encourage you to visit the forums and making a search for suggestions that have been made in the past, and adding your vote and comments to those existing posts [and thus not creating a new one]. That will make the request more popular and make it stand out more, encouraging more people to add their votes. :)

Note: Texts in between square brackets are additions of mine.

And the guide linked above does have a link to an existing suggestion made in the past about the course you're suggesting.
