Comunn Gaidhlig na h-Aibhne Moire
Gaelic Society of the Great River (Sacramento, CA)

Comunn Gaidhlig na h-Aibhne Mor is offering a study group in Scottish Gaelic for Beginners, beginning in Fall, 1998, and meeting the first Monday and the second Tuesday of every month.

Meetings rotate among members homes. The study group begins at 7:00 p.m. Activities include Scottish Gaelic conversation and working with various Scottish Gaelic learning materials. Though the study group is informally linked with the Beginning Scottish Gaelic class offered concurrently at American River College, membership in that class is not a prerequisite for participation in the study group, and learners of all levels are invited and encouraged to join the study group. There is no fee for attending, and there are no dues for membership in Comunn Gaidhlig na h-Aibhne Mor.

The focus of the study group, and of the Society's work, is to help learners increase their ability to use spoken Gaelic. In the study group, the the newer learners work with a variety of materials and activities, and are coached and assisted by the more advanced learners, who themselves work with songs, videos, and taped programs, as well as with books and other publications.

Each year, a Winter ceilidh and a Spring ceilidh are held, where the participants are given an opportunity to demonstrate what skills they've acquired, in a supportive and competition-free environment.
