Gaelic learning resources #gàidhlig

In this blog post, Caroline Schofield, out Learning Resources officer tells us a little about the Gaelic educational resources which the Parliament has produced:

If you are learning Gaelic, we have a webpage which can help you learn some words about the Parliament.


We also have some worksheets which will test your knowledge in a fun way. You can also find lots more resources and activities in Gaelic including Snakes and ladders, a timeline of the history of the Parliament, and art activities.

Gaelic learners: get involved through social media #gàidhlig

As part of the Parliament’s Gaelic Week this week we relaunched our Gaelic blog with a new look. After 5 years it was in need of a bit of a refresh and we hope you will like it. We would be interested to hear your views – if you like you can leave these in the comments section below.  


You may also have noticed that we have been putting up some posts in English of late. These are aimed at Gaelic learners or people interested in learning. We will be doing more of these in future, looking at Gaelic provision in the Parliament and how learners can get involved.

As always, we’ll also continue to blog about the work of the Scottish Parliament in Gaelic.

We’ve been busy on other social medium platforms during Gaelic Week. On YouTube you’ll find a video of the Scottish Parliament’s Presiding Officer Ken Macintosh MSP trying some simple Gaelic phrases.


We also have our regular feature Gaelic Word of the Week which enables people to learn a little about Gaelic and about the Scottish Parliament at the same time. This week, our special guest was John McCormick of the Commission of Parliamentary Reform who learnt to say Your Parliament, Your Voice.

We also reached a milestone for our Gaelic twitter feed this week when we hit 2,000 followers. If you want to help improve your Gaelic by following us, you can find us at @ParlAlba.
