Learning Scottish Gaelic The Fun Way! - Bundle

Learning Scottish Gaelic The Fun Way! - Bundle

Are you learning Scottish Gaelic? Are you looking for a fun way to learn Scottish Gaelic? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in Scottish Gaelic. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into Scottish Gaelic. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!

Scotland on Film/ Alba air an SgaIlean

A resource produced in partnership with Education Scotland, Scottish Book Trust and LGBT Youth Scotland. The activities in this resource are designed to encourage educators and young people to explore Scotland through film, focusing specifically on two central themes: Language and Identity. From classic cinema through to modern day representations of Scotland on film, the resource touches on history, myth, and culture. It also uses film with accompanying Scots language texts, encouraging learners to explore the language in historical and modern contexts. The sections on identity cover many aspects of what it can mean to be Scottish from personal identity, including LGBT, to rural and city living. Not yet Into Film?

Welcome to the 'Let’s Write in Scottish Gaelic!' pack. There are lots of ways of using this teaching pack. It could be used as writing assessment for students learning Scottish Gaelic. The students could write about a topic in Scottish Gaelic before starting a unit, and then write again about the topic, using the second worksheet at the end of the topic to see how much they have progressed. It could also be used as an introduction to guided writing. Students can write sentences as a class and share the sentences together and they can then write them on their own. Alternatively, students could work in pairs - one student dictates to the other what to write down about what they see in the picture. These pages could also be used to write different stories, using the pictures as a stimulus. * Please note - these resources provide visual prompts and support to the students, not direct language instruction.

2 videos on lingusitics for advanced classes

2 videos on lingusitics for advanced classes

1) Fascinating 8 min. video from BBC horizon. It demonstrates how our brain processes colours differently depending on our native language!! 2) The first video on this blog, 'The Stuff of Thought,' is a 17 min. video about languages and how they shape our views on the world. In English, but you can add subtitles in 28 languages to hit additional lesson objectives. Fascinating but long, I would not recommend showing this in its entirety.
