"The BBC together with MGAlba (the company running the BBC’s Gaelic medium TV channel BBC Alba), Bord na Gàidhlig, the Scottish Government, and the Gaelic language college based on Skye, Sabhal Mòr Os***** have funded and developed a £4 million major new initiative to promote learning Gaelic. This involves the release of a wealth of new materials for online learning. These will be more extensive and in-depth than the highly popular and excellent Gaelic Duolingo course and will provide structured learning of the language in four levels, from absolute beginners to advanced learners."

Looking forward to this. Hitting a bit of a wall on duolingo/learngaelic and every little helps.

I'd be interested to know how folk get on as it's a different pedagogical approach to what has been tried before.

I was involved in some of the early trials and it's very much about communication and speaking rather than learning grammar and tables of prepositional pronouns.

If nippy is pushing this, is she fluent?

Because every politician trying to promote science or engineering must be highly proficient in physics, chemistry and biology, having put modern studies on the back-burner.

Is there something unique about Gaelic that riles you in this respect?

Nope but I could think of far better, more useful languages to learn.
