Professor Dick Johnstone’s Flying Visit

Dick Johnstone is retired Professor Emeritus at Stirling University. For many years he directed Scottish CILT, and more recently he was the driving force behind the creation of Soillse.

He has a wealth of international experience in relation to bilingualism in education, and was visiting Uist in his advisory capacity to the small research project being conducted here. During his stay he was able, among other things, to visit the offices of Am Pàipear in Balivanich, and to meet some members of Cothrom’s new Language and Culture group who gather on a Monday afternoon to learn Italian together.

Here he talks to Gordon Wells (in English) about the benefits of bilingualism.

(Gordon’s Gaelic introduction lasts about a minute.)
