"A cat and a dog are small."
Translation:Tha cat agus cù beag.
The subject. If I said, "Tha mi sgìth" that would be, "I am tired"
If I said, "Tha thu sgìth" that would be, "You are tired"
If I said, "Tha cat sgìth" it would be, "The cat is tired"
I could be wrong, as its been years since I've taken a Gaelic course, so I hope someone corrects me if I'm wrong.
No it is not a question of money. There are different views on the best way to teach a language, and even an expensive course may take the view that the 'hard way' is best. Part of the problem is that what works for one person may not work for another. Here are some ways you can try. The best one is the one that works for you.
- Guess, and then learn when they tell you
- Hover your mouse over, or click on the words
- Use an online dictionary such as the left hand column at https://www.faclair.com/
- Buy a children's picture dictionary such as Mo Chiad Fhaclair. Sadly this is not in print but you can currently buy one online for less than £/$ 15. Tick off the words as you learn them. The sections may correspond approximately with the sections in this course
- Keep your own list as you encounter the words. You should add the gender and, when you get far enough in the course to worry, the genitive and the plural as well
- Get the section-by-section list from https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/39057170. You can either find out the meanings one by one as you meet the words, or look them all up before you start each section
