Advanced Self-study

The Islay Course is suitable for students who:
* study Gaelic at College/University

* have little opportunity to practice pronunciation
* want to plug the gaps in their knowledge

Supported Self-Study Option

The course is structured to identify quickly what areas you need extra help with.

The Islay course is a storyline, following two tourists on a 4-day visit to the Isle of Islay.

You will receive the printed student handbook (A5 - 158 pages) and access to other learning resources
(e.g. videos of Islay narrated by native speakers plus downloadable learner practice soundfiles)
