No. My CD-ROM was as pants as I expected. I did get a lovely book (I think for kiddies, essentially--hey!??) from islandhopper. I think my brain may explode if I try to learn a completely new language though.

It's family-friendly! Probably not the most useful thing without the supporting tv show but it does have the added advantage of having a picture of me in it - even if I couldn't be spotted by 2 different anoraks!

I used a comma splice in that sentence. I don't deserve to learn any other languages when I'm so shite at my own.

I took a course in Irish once, and it was great. It made every other language look buttcrack easy compared to it, but also kind of ugly too.

Who'd have thought David Mitchell would be responsible for reviving the Gaidhlig thread

Shame he's being slightly nonsensical.

Any advances Gordon?

I saw that (although I don't remember what he said, only being mildly disappointed). No advances, however I am reconfiguring my daily schedule (from not having one), and I'm going to fit in an hour or two a week of Gaidhlig time. So I'll be telling you all the time and counting to 20 by the end of the year, I'm sure...
Toot toot.

He is a little too like Mark sometimes. Ah well, if we can get over racist mucisians then we can get over comedians being mildly disapproving of the amount of money spent on minority languages.

Good luck!
