Come and join An Còmhradh Mòr – ‘The Big Conversation’ – with leading experts from Gaelic organisations debating the future of Gaelic learning for adults.
Speakers include Shona MacLennan, Bòrd na Gàidhlig, Rosemary Ward from Comhairle nan Leabhraichean, Dr. Stuart Dunmore from the Univeristy of Edinburgh and journalist David Eyre.
In the afternoon you may wish to visit the Edinburgh Gaelic Week Fair which is to be held in the same location starting at 2.30pm.
CLÌ Gàidhlig, previously known as Comann an Luchd-ionnsachaidh, was founded in 1984. There have been many changes since the early 1980s but the focus of the organisation remains on enabling adult learners to achieve fluency in the language by providing a wide range of learning resources. CLÌ has the following three aims:
– to develop the learning of Gaelic and promote the status of the Gaelic language
– to circulate information on Gaelic and Gaelic affairs
– to act as a support network for Gaelic learners and non-native speakers
