ME33IC Introductory Gaelic for Medical Students
This is an introductory course in the modern Scottish Gaelic language for students who have a standard grade qualification in Gaelic. However if you are keen to take this please contact course coordinator to discuss.
There are five classes per week: three language classes, one oral/aural class and one reading class. The language classes follow a custom-written textbook ‘Progressive Gaelic 1’. Sound files accompanying the textbook are made available through the virtual learning environment, MyAberdeen. In the oral/aural class, students have an opportunity to practise speaking, develop their vocabulary further, and listen to a native speaker. This class follows another custom-written workbook, which is given to students free of charge, and a programme of language lab work.

You also have the option to attend one lecture and one tutorial on aspects of Gaelic culture and will be required to prepare for each tutorial and keep abreast of set reading for the course.
Please indicate on the choice form your previous level of achievement for the language chosen, but note that whether you enter the beginners' or advanced class will be settled during the first week of the SSC.
