Fàilte (welcome)!

Slighe nan Gàidheal is a non-profit educational society that teaches and promotes the Scottish Gaelic language and culture in the Pacific Northwest.


Learn Gaelic

Please join us for a full day of Scottish Gaelic! 

Our Zero to Gaelic (Z2G) program is getting underway. We offer three levels of progressive instruction plus our Ceum Suas group for ongoing and advanced learners, with immersion activities throughout the levels. Intensive Days are offered on the first Saturday of each month, from September through May. 

We meet north of the University of Washington, about 6 miles/minutes, for a day of active language learning, 9:30am - 3:30pm.   We have participants who join us from as far as Oregon & near the Canadian border.

Upcoming Zero to Gaelic Class Dates

Our 2017-2018 ZtG season has wrapped up, but our next season of classes will start in the Fall 2018, with the first class on October 6th. Register for classes below.
