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!

Are you curious to learn an old fashioned counting system? In this class, students will look at the alternative, old fashioned counting system. They will be able to practice their numeracy skills by counting in blocks of 20 similar to other modern foreign languages. These classes help beginner students get familiar to hearing Scottish Gaelic spoken aloud as well as providing practice by speaking it aloud themselves.
