From the course tips: The Grass is Blue - A Different Spectrum of Colour It is often said that languages give you a different perspective on the world. The colour spectrum in Gaelic doesn't always align with the English one. One of the main differences is how Gaelic views blue and green.

Blue: Liath - light blue, but can also mean grey.

Gorm - blue / blue-green

Green: Uaine - green

Gorm - green that occurs in nature

Tha am feur gorm. - The grass is green.
