New Gaelic Classes in Inverness

This term’s new Gaelic Classes in Inverness run by The Highland Council will start on Monday 31 August and will cater for everyone from those new to learning the language, to others who want to develop their skills. There will also be a new course focussing on Gaelic Grammar, an advanced reading and conversation class, as well as a handy weekday morning class for parents.

By working in partnership with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig (SMO), the Council this year has been able to align several classes with the structure of the SMO short courses.

The list of courses taking place at Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Inbhir Nis, the Gaelic primary school in Inverness are:

  • Ulpan Unit 100 – Monday 7pm to 9pm 
  • intermediate level Gaelic Grammar - Monday 7pm to 9pm

  • Advanced Reading/Conversation Thursday 7pm to 9pm

There will also be an intermediate conversation class taking place on Wednesdays from 4.30pm to 6.30pm, in the Charleston Community Complex.

Classes run for 14 weeks, excluding October holidays and cost £63 or £31 for Gaelic Medium Parents and council employees.
