Reference Materials and Gaelic Learning Sources

Scottish Gaelic External References and Resources is a great resource for learners and students with videos, learning modules, a pronunciation dictionary, and much more.


Slighe nan Gàidheal Library

The mission of the Slighe nan Gaidheal library is to support with library resources, our organization’s teaching and dissemination of the Scottish Gaelic language. The first priority is to provide support to SnG Members and learners enrolled in the Z2G program. Readers can access our catalog from anywhere—even on a mobile phone.

Patrons can search or browse our collection and place a “hold” on any items using our catalog. The Library Committee is notified by e-mail and the item(s) are retrieved for delivery to the patron at an upcoming event (we do not use postal mail). Browse our library to see what books are available.


Tutoring Resources

We hope to see you at our Zero to Gaelic classes throughout the year, however, the best way to learn a language is to speak it regularly. A tutor or practice with other learners is a great way to learn and advance between classes.
