Clasaichean Gaidhlig ann an Siorrachd Rinn Friu an Ear
(Gaelic Classes in East Renfrewshire) 

Much of what we regard as Scottish stems from the Gaels, and any understanding of Scotland and its culture is incomplete without reference to Gaelic.

Carson nach feuch sibh i!? - Why don't you come and try it!?

Gaelic classes

Gaelic Classes are aimed at any adults who are interested in learning to speak the language and in understanding more about the culture.  The classes, which are held weekly, are informal, practical, and fun, and cater for differing levels of fluency.

Where and when are the classes?

All our classes are held in the Barrhead area and are organised to suit the needs of beginner, intermediate and advanced level learners. All courses are free as they are supported by a grant from the Scottish Government.
