Some tips from a fellow learner: Work on sentence structure and basic vocab first--don't worry about getting too in-depth all at once. Try using things you're interested in--like listen to music in gàidhlig and pick your favorite song, then study the vocab from it! (example: https://decks.memrise.com/course/5512521/griogal-cridhe-gaidhlig-vocab/) Try to integrate some gàidhlig into your daily life, even if it's just listening to music or the gàidhlig radio (https://www.bbc.co.uk/radionangaidheal) in the background while you do laundry. Get used to the sounds of the language! Good luck! Mar sin leibh.
