Uist Guide for Gaelic Learners

08/05/2018 Leave a comment

A year has passed since Ceòlas’ Liam Alastair Crouse last spoke to Gordon Wells about his work in Uist. He took time out from helping with the latest immersion course for Gaelic learners at Kildonan Museum to talk about what he’s been doing. He’s not been idle!

Part of his work involves helping organisations (local and national) develop their Gaelic, particularly online. Here are some of the sites he mentions.

https://www.taigh-chearsabhagh.org/gd/taigh-chearsabhagh-taigh-tasgaidh-agus-ionad-ealan/

He then goes on to mention the latest initiative to help Gaelic learners in Uist – a listing of likely places where you might hear and practise the language, together with some helpful tips on how to engage in Gaelic conversation. You can download and print off the guidelines here. It’s also available on the Ceòlas site here.

In the final part of the conversation with Gordon he talks about further plans for local development. Watch this space!

This is a very nicely made video from Comhairle nan Eilean Siar’s Multimedia centre, with Liam Alastair Crouse making some well considered points about learning Gaelic. It may not be the easiest task in the world – but the rewards for success are worth noting!

Dance in the Car Park

06/05/2017 Leave a comment

There was a warm welcome back to Uist for Will Lamb and Naomi Harvey this weekend, when they led a “Danns’ ri Puirt” workshop at Talla Chàirinis in North Uist – so warm, in fact, that they held it in the car park rather than inside the hall! It was part of the Ceòlas annual Òran ’s Fonn song festival, which stretches over three days.

In this clip Will and Naomi talk, in Gaelic and English, about their research collaboration, and how they’re seeking to put it to practical effect, by actually trying out putting singing and dancing together. You can also get a taste of the workshop itself, as Liam Alastair Crouse, from Ceòlas, and visiting students on the Gaelic Immersion for Teachers course at the University of Strathclyde willingly put theory to test…

Ceòlas were recently pleased to announce the appointment of Liam Alastair Crouse to the post of Gaelic Media and Communications Officer (Oifigear Mheadhanan is Conaltraidh Gàidhlig).

Close followers of Guthan nan Eilean will remember that he’s worked with Ceòlas in Uist before, as Gaelic Development Officer, when he recorded a short interview close to the start of his job.

So, Gordon Wells was happy to catch up with Liam again as he starts out on his new posting, this time for a video recording. Liam talks about the opportunities and challenges entailed in the task of getting more Gaelic onto the Internet. We wish him well!
