Learn Scottish Gaelic with teacher Susanna and her student Mark. Each lesson is like going for a coffee with your friend who happens to speak Scottish Gaelic and is helping you learn in a relaxed, enjoyable way.
Coffee Break Gaelic is not a simple series of "listen and repeat" audio programmes: in each lesson Susanna explains how the language works, helping Mark - and you - to manipulate the language and use it in practical situations. As a learner Mark asks questions, and makes mistakes, so through Susanna's explanations, corrections and pronunciation tips you'll build your confidence and begin to understand and speak the language.
In the same time it takes you to sit down and enjoy a coffee in your favourite coffee shop, you can make progress with your Gaelic. Our 15-20 minute lessons are perfect to keep you focused and let you develop your confidence in regular sessions.

Sgoinneil!

A lovely little podcast. Susanna and Mark are so pleasant and do make it delightful to follow along and practice with them. Probably best for those just starting out but highly recommended for learners at any level.

Just found this!

I’ve been trying to learn Scottish Gaelic on Indylan app but I’m also learning a Scottish accent in my acting class, it is my favorite accent ever and your voices are so relaxing! I listen to this on my drives

Fantastic Program

I have been interesting in learning Scottish Gaelic for quite a few years. I’m pleased to see more and more remote ways to learn Scottish Gaelic popping up. It makes it much easier to learn this beautiful language for those of us who cannot make it to a school to learn.

This method is a lovely short-form way to learn on your coffee break or your commute. I’m using it as a supplement to a few other methods and have found it quite useful for review and explanations of grammar and the like.

I can’t wait to keep learning with Coffee Break Gaelic.

Tapadh leibh!
