5.0 out of 5 stars Good resource. 18 Jan 2005
Format:Paperback
Learning Gaelic isn't the easiest task to take on so a resource like this is a great place to start. It is certainly one of the few that comes with a CD to support the book, perhaps the most useful part of this product. Listening closely and repeating Gaelic is one of the best ways to learn plus the book goes over the finer details of the language structure. It is one of the most popular course books for Gaelic classes so should be a good one to start with but you may also want to consider a good dictionary also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tha 'Teach Yourself Gaelic' i glè mhath! 9 April 2007
Format:Paperback
I have been using this book for a week (Including CDs - Which have been put onto MP3 Player) and so far have found it very good.

You start with the basics: Pronunciation > Basic greetings > Starting conversation > Continuing conversations etc. This goes on throughout the book until you have a good grasp of the language.
By the end of the book, if followed thouroughly, you should be able to talk about everyday things with ease and handle day to day situations.
I would highly recomend buying the 'Teach Yourself Gaelic Dictionary' to aid with verbs and what not.

I found that within the first week of studying and listening i was able to make decent sized conversations asking how folk were, where they lived, where they worked, where they were going and including basic weather statements...all from the first 2 units :)

Have fun learning a wonderful language if you buy this book. You won't be disappointed.

Beannachd Leibh!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tuition aid 4 Feb 2006
Format:Paperback
The book is very clearly laid out with a column and tabular format and introduces new concepts as you go.
The CD is essential to learn the inconsistent pronunciation.
The only downside is the irritating track 1 reading the Ts and Cs and copyright info with a broad Bronx accent - completely inappropriate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 6 Mar 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is very well done. It is clearly the best "Teach Yourself" or "Colloquial" series book out there. Everything has been explained nicely and it is fairly easy to work through. My favorite part, though, is that there is one dialogue per unit, and it usually very large. However, the cassettes are a must, because you don't stand a chance to be able to pronounce Gaelic without them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scottish Gaelic 24 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
I am a student of Scottish Gaelic. The first unit in this; is easy enough; BUT after that it becomes quite involved. I'd recommend this for those who want to brush up on their Scottish Gaelic; or to aid those who are studying it - BUT think a complete beginner may become frustrated with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but not enough 23 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This set is a great introduction to Scots Gaelic, but the book really needs an English-Gaelic dictionary and phrase list to make it more useful for English speakers. The Gaelic Vocabulay at the end is good if one wishes to look up a Gaelic word to find its English meaning, but if one wants to quickly reference an English phrase with the Gaelic version, say, how to say "Good Morning" one cannot. (It's "Madainn Math", by the way) Because of this, I would recommend buying a separate English-Gaelic dictionary as an additional resource.
