So I made a presentation about Celtic Nations and their respective language in class and I'm happy..
...because apparently they LOVED it!
I basically cut the presentation in 2 parts: history of Brittany and Ireland (I didn't include Wales, Scotland, Cornwall or the Isle of Man because I wouldn't have enough time to treat them all) and linguistics where I was talking about the Celtic tree, but mostly taking Irish Gaelic and Breton examples. I focused the presentation on this part.
At first I thought they'd hate it because I had to speed it up (since I only had 20 minutesuntil the end of the class last week because of a group who was presenting before) and I had to pause it. So I sped it up for nothing, kinda. Plus I felt like some didn't care.
However when I did the second half yesterday, I had more time to present the other half of my presentation. In this part I talked about grammar, weird word orders these languages have, pronunciation (I even explained the slender and broad vowels in Irish, and did a correlation on why Irish spelling was thus complicated!), I also did comparisons of sentences inter languages, and finally (that wasn't scheduled at first) I made them listen to a little Welsh, and I felt like it amused them a bit (because we all know Welsh sounds quite like an alien thing, even more to those who don't know anything about Welsh, no offence though haha.).
Finally, I concluded on the fact that they aren't spoken so much nowadays, but that it could be cool to keep them alive, refering also to other little-spoken languages like Navajo, or Maori (our teacher is New-Zealandese hehe). Then I said Slán Abhaile, and they all cheered me. And eventually, a group of three girls in my group told me they loved it, even though one of them was absent when I did the first part last week.
If anyone wants the PDF, tell me. I have Discord if anyone's interested.
In conclusion, this project motivated me to improve my Irish, so I can't be more happy about it! :D
EDIT: I got 16,25 points, the max mark being 20.
And btw, can I get the .pdf?
