Shonagh McLennanHost: Shonagh lives and teaches in Inverness but comes from Caithness originally. Gaelic isn’t spoken commonly there and as such, Shonagh learnt Gaelic as an older teenager and later at university in Glasgow and Aberdeen. This helps her to understand just how tricky language learning can be!
