Your Parliament, Your #Gaelic, Your Views, says Presiding Officer #gàidhlig

Gaelic speakers, Gaelic learners and non-Gaelic speakers are all being encouraged to give theirs views to the Scottish Parliament on the future shape of its Gaelic services.

Whether you take the short, three minute online survey about using Holyrood’s Gaelic facilities, or whether you want to submit a formal submission on the Parliament’s next Gaelic Language Plan, the Presiding Officer, Ken Macintosh, is urging people to have their say.

Announcing the launch of the online surveys, Presiding Officer, the Rt Hon Ken Macintosh MSP said:

Gaelic matters.  Whether or not you are Highland-born like me, it is part of who we are and part of Scotland’s rich cultural identity.

The Scottish Parliament recognises Gaelic’s special status and that’s reflected in our laws, and in the Gaelic services we offer people when visiting Holyrood and engaging with the Parliament.

That’s why we are launching two surveys about our Gaelic services – a quick and easy one to tell us briefly what you think, and a more detailed one about our Gaelic Language plan that covers our approach for the next five years.

“Do Phàrlamaid, do chànain, thoir dhuinn do bheachdan.  It’s your Parliament, your Gaelic, tell us your views.”

Gaelic Word of the Week returns #gàidhlig

Gaelic Word of the Week has now returned after its break during recess.

Gaelic word of the Week is a short weekly feature on Soundcloud aiming at people who would like to learn a little about Gaelic and a little of the language while also learning about the Scottish Parliament.

The first in the new series is Muile – Mull – to tie in with the Parliament’s Rural Economy and Connectivity committee  visiting the Island as part of their consultation on the Islands (Scotland) Bill.

We will be looking at more of Scotland’s islands in Gaelic Word of the Week as work on this bill continues.
