Very new to Gàidhlig so this may be a daft question. I understand sibh, you plural or formal, can be pronounced shiv or shoo but is it the same for sibhse? Is it shiv-sha or shoo-sha ?

Sibhse is emphatic. It's like using an exclamation mark.

(This is in the course notes by the way. I don't know if you've found those yet.)

Thank you. Mainly using the app so haven’t seen the notes there. I’m guessing the pronunciation can be either then?

Hmm, I'll be honest, I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone pronounce it 'shoo-sha' (or 'shiv-sha', although that's more likely). Most likely 'sheev-sha' or 'shee-sha'.
