Study & Live the Gaelic Life amidst our North Uist Gaelic Community
During our school holidays and break from online teaching, we provide face-to-face learning experiences on the island. We will open registration in January for students visiting the islands and wanting to sign up for a Gaelic intensive course while here. As our availability is limited, you may have to share sessions with other students.
Transport is not provided to and from your accommodation.
You will have access to tutoring, printed materials, stationary, refreshments - coffee/tea/water, online learning resources.
Full payment to secure your place is due on registration and is non-refundable (unless you can not attend due to plane or ferry to the island being cancelled). Places can not be reserved.
If you are interested in learning or speaking a specific dialect, you could also check out the other Gaelic learning providers on the other Hebridean islands. We can only advise on the dialect we use in our classroom. Gaelic can differ in vocabulary use, pronunciation, gender of nouns and phrase use, depending on location. The important thing for learners is not to mix them up and respect the uniqueness of each dialect, in order to preserve its characteristics for future generations.

We are following the GOC (Gaelic Orthographic Conventions), however we acknowledge that this is optional and not everyone is adapting these. (e.g. in some places, both accents are still in use). We can't give advice or help with learning based on the previous or other learning systems.
