I hear a "n". The words are just running together - ...leam'n'sgoil. I quite like the different accents and pronunciations. I learned Spanish in Andalusia, and live in Glasgow, and in both places people run words together and miss letters out all the time. It's good to hear the Gaelic variations rather than be fed some so-called "correct" way of talking. Just my view.

You really can't hear the "an"

Is there any consistency over where the stress is in a sentence? Some speakers say CHA toil leam, and others say cha TOIL leam.

Does this lady have a Canadian accent @allNativeGaekicSpeakers

No, she has a traditional Hebridean accent. Hope this helps

I love the weariness in the speaker's dislike of school.

I answered 'I don't like the the school' which is wrong. I have used 'don't' in

I have used 'don't' instead of 'do not' in lots of other answers but it was considered to be wrong in this case
