Practice books

I would like to get some deeper insight in Scottish gaelic. Perhaps this has been asked before, but can anyone recommend me a couple of good practice/learning books or websites?

2 Comments is a very good website with many options for all levels. You can switch the website between English and Gaelic text with a tab in the top right (on my computer). There are pull down menus for beginner, intermediate, etc:

Here is a path to one of their courses for beginners, called Little by Little (or Beag air bheag). Each lesson introduces some grammer followed by 2 or 3 conversations which have a recording, gaelic text, and english text. There is an optional quiz at the end of each lesson.

Mango Languages has a free beginner's course in Scottish Gaelic. It is a different approach than Duolingo and there are some additional vocabulary words. I'm about 1/2 way through.

Gaelic in 12 Weeks by OMaolalaigh is a book that you can get from many websites (I don't think anyone can actually learn it all in 12 weeks though!). It takes a grammar based approach to covering the language and has a pretty good index (for looking up grammar details). One place you can get a copy is:

Gàidhlig gu Leòr has a series of eSgoil National 5 Review youtube videos. They have a playlist for all the videos together here:

The University of Otago in New Zealand has Seallagain: Gaelic Grammar at a Glance (book) and recordings by Catrìona Parsons available for free download here:

You could also search the duolingo discussion forum using "Scottish Gaelic Resources" to see recommendations from other users.

Wow, thank you so much for your extensive answer!
