Self-Study Option

This Self-Study Scottish Gaelic course is for higher intermediate /advanced level learners who want to revise and re-enforce their skillset. It covers the story of two tourists who are on a 4-day visit to Islay. 


The bilingual course work book can be purchased online and consists of their daily dialogues which can be listened to in our videos, vocabulary and grammar exercises, question and answer practice, vocabulary list, supplemented with online dialogue writing development practice. Most answers to exercises are provided in the online section.


You can sign up for e-mail supported study, if you want to receive feedback on your pronunciation and writing task only. Limited spaces available each month. 


For those who want downloadable soundfiles, support with questions outside the course curriculum, practice of dative/conditional/passive/genitive case and so much more, you can sign up for our taught 8-lesson Advanced Booster Course instead, which includes this Islay course as well.  Limited spaces available each month.
