Laura HowittHost: Laura is a secondary school Gàidhlig teacher who has taught Gaelic (Learners) at all levels. She has a passion for the language and is keen to introduce students of all ages to the Scottish Gaelic.

When taking on a new language it is really useful to know information about the language in context; where and how it is used alongside a little history.

In this class, Laura will give students a basic overview of the history and culture of Scottish Gàidhlig. Students will learn how to say their name, ask others’ their names, introduce other people as well as asking and answering the question ‘how are you?’ .

These Scottish Gaelic Life Skill classes are great for any students wanting to improve a basic level of the language or who are brand new learners and keen to develop their vocab, speaking and understanding.
