What we're about
This is a group for anyone interested in Scottish Gaelic. Scottish Gaelic is a language related to Irish, but it is different enough to be considered it's own language. The langauge is still in daily use in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland as well as in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Many Gaelic speaking Scots immigrated to Massachusetts from Nova Scotia. In fact, in Nova Scotia they still refer to the United States as "The Boston States." The organizer is a fluent Gaelic speaker and has a PhD in Scottish and Celtic Studies from Edinburgh University and has taught Gaelic for 25 years. This is not a group where people sit around and translate Gaelic texts. This is a group where people are expected to have fun. Language learning should be fun and should not be a dry academic exercise. This group does not have a home yet, but I expect it to be in the Worcester / Auburn area.
