A list of sentences taught in the Scottish Gaelic Intro skill!

Hi there! I thought it might be useful to create a list of all the sentences taught in the Scottish Gaelic course. So far I've made a list of the sentences taught in the Intro skill and I thought I'd post it here in case it helps anyone! Hope it helps!

Intro

Lesson 1

  • Caileag agus cat = A girl and a cat
  • Muc agus cù = A pig and a dog
  • Balach agus caileag = A boy and a girl
  • Cat agus muc = A cat and a pig

Lesson 2

  • Tha Eilidh mòr = Eilidh is big
  • Tha Anna beag agus snog = Anna is small and nice
  • Tha Calum agus Eilidh snog = Calum and Eilidh are nice
  • Tha Anna agus Calum beag = Anna and Calum are small
  • Tha Eilidh snog = Eilidh is nice
  • Tha Calum mòr = Calum is big

Lesson 3

  • Tha Gàidhlig snog = Gaelic is nice
  • Caraid agus cù = A friend and a dog
  • Chan eil Iain math = Iain is not good
  • Calum agus Iain = Calum and Iain
  • Tha Iain dona = Iain is bad
  • Tha Gàidhlig math = Gaelic is good
  • Chan eil Gàidhlig dona = Gaelic is not bad
  • Caraid agus bò = A friend and a cow

Lesson 4

  • Piseag agus cat = A kitten and a cat
  • Tha IRN BRU math = IRN BRU is good
  • Seo Mòrag = This is Morag
  • Seo cearc agus IRN BRU = This is a chicken and IRN BRU

Would people here find it useful if I keep sharing these lists? I'm not sure how to do it, as I could do it for every skill, but I don't want to spam the forum. Maybe I could do it by rows or checkpoints? What do you think?

    Scottish Gaelic is obviously very popular right now. It wouldn't be spamming the forum if you did it bit by bit. Just a lesson a day, or something! :)

    I had an X-Files moment with Gaelic yesterday. I did a double take when I saw "Tha Calum ann an Obar Dheathain". My son's name is Calum, and he happens to be in Aberdeen.

      Hope you can post some more!
