App aid to learning Gaelic

GAELIC learners are set to benefit from a new app to help them get to grips with Scotland’s native language.

The free app, which can be downloaded from iTunes to smartphones and iPads, contains key verbs and pronunciations from a native Gaelic speaker.

Aimed at students at all levels, the Scottish Gaelic LearnBot app supports the sell-out book, Verbots - Learn 101 Scottish Gaelic Verbs.

The app was launched by the Gaelic Books Council with £10,000 funding from Bòrd na Gàidhlig, Creative Scotland and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
