The arsehole instructor yelled at me for saying "Gay-lick" and made us try to say "Gaah-lik" with about 18 syllables and killing anyone near you with your "gaaahlic" breath. I do feel a tit though, as there are about 8 billion: 1 Irish to Scottish in Boston and they'd look at me like I was saying, "Woooould you paaahs the Greeeay Poupon, playeehz."Gordon wrote:I'm not completely sure if in English you should pronounce it 'Gahlic" or if that's really poncey and like saying "Oh, I do love speaking Fran-say when I'm in Par-ee"
I think (again chris space hopper is yer man here) that the CD/book kit I tried first (http://www.amazon.com/Yourself-Gaelic-C ... d_sim_sw_2) is considered the superior product, but for a complete dummy and newbie like me, I'm re-starting on this Eurotalk product available here. I'm sure it's shit. The one US Amazon review (2 stars) raves, "Very exciting, if you want to learn to tell the time." Whoop! Not recommended for you since you're exposed to the language.Gordon wrote:Also, where's the CDROM from?
I have a whole bunch of dictionaries and this other CD-ROM (hee!): Learn Scots Gaelic: For Children 4 & Up. But they're mostly gathering dust.
