"My goal for students is that they enjoy learning Gaelic and develop confidence in communicating in Gaelic and be able to use it in their daily lives."



Gaelic Language

Gaelic is the Celtic language spoken in Scotland and Cape Breton.  Once the main language of Scotland it is now a minority language in its own homeland.  It is a Goidelic language, in the Celtic branch of the Indo-European language family, native to the Gaels of Scotland. As a Goidelic language, Scottish Gaelic, as well as both Irish and Manx, developed out of Old Irish.
