If you have been a visitor to my website before, you might be wondering where all the files have gone. The time has come for me to realize that the gig-economy has arrived at my front door. What I do take a lot of time an effort and so I have begun the process of migrating over to Patreon. I hope to see you over there and do please let me know what you would like to see me post content-wise.

Gaelic Language Course

I have been teaching people how to speak Gaelic for more than 12 years. The handouts that I've built for my Gaelic language course are archived on my Patreon site for subscribers. Please do explore my offerings in the courses area.

HERE are some basic tips and resources for learning Gaelic.

History and Travel Courses

After beginning my Gaelic language journey, I was interested in knowing why the Gaelic language is in the state that it is in today. I have developed my research into a course on the History of the Gaels - the people who speak the Gaelic language. And then, of course, it was natural to want to travel to Scotland and Ireland to see all the important historical sites! I developed that into Beyond the Usual classes. I also have a number of tips and tricks for traveling to Scotland and Ireland.

Start your journey by signing up for my newsletter below and consider subscribing to my Patreon page.

Gaels are indigenous people of Scotland, Ireland, and the Isle of Man, and are struggling to maintain their language and culture in the face of local and global language, economic, political, and cultural pressures. You have a role to play.

Land acknowledgement

I acknowledge that we live on the unceded lands of the Coast Salish People, such as the
Duwamish, whose ancestors resided here since time immemorial and whose descendants are with us today, honoring and bringing to life their ancient heritage.
