    Gaelic

    I've long heard gaelic in some of the music I listen to and hear it on some shows and it sound so musical and fun I'd love to learn but afraid it might be a bit late to learn it well

    Learner

    I Once Borrowed a Cd Lauguage Set From the Library

    Love The Lyrical Sound Of It

    This was something my sweetie and I both wanted to do. Looks like now I'm going to do it solo. But it will be a challenge. Wondering if my language and learning skills are up to the task. Oh well... it'll be fun.
