Course Description

This course builds on Gaelic language classes at Level 1 and Level 2 and complements other language options available at Levels 3 and 4. The course runs all year. Students will attend 1 one-hour seminar per fortnight. This seminar will provide vocabulary for specific linguistic domains, set writing tasks and discuss students' performance in their writing tasks. Students will be required to undertake a directed programme of writing tasks and submit exercises on a fortnightly basis.
This is a course for native speakers, who are all learning at individual rates and who all have distinctive needs and weaknesses in their language. The needs and knowledge of each individual student is addressed by the lecturer, and the course is tailored individually.
