A brand new pilot scheme to help people with other languages learn Gaelic has been hailed a success by all eight students on the initial class roll.
The twice-weekly course now hopes to roll out and expand to four-days with facilities for students at all levels of the language with a specific target for heritage learners where Gaelic may have skipped a generation in a family.
At the moment the new course, run by Gordon Murray, has solely been run via evening classes but Mr Murray is hoping to implement holiday courses and intensive daily courses in the new year.
Among the eight who took part in the pilot scheme was Alison Duncan from Dunoon who said: “I really enjoyed it and the course really suited me.
“It was great to have the opportunity to be part of a pilot scheme and I really enjoyed the learning method they had as I prefer to learn things by ear.
“I am definitely more confident with my Gaelic today than I was four days earlier.”
