Spend the weekend at our beautiful St. Ann's campus, while learning the Gaelic language in an exciting, useful, and enthralling way! During the course of a year, the College offers three Gaelic weekends, each with its own special theme. The weekends offer instruction in the Gàidhlig Aig Baile (GAB) style of teaching, which allows students to be fully immersed, even at a most beginner level. Classes are available in a variety of topics and skill levels, [Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Youth] with evening activities to only enhance your stay. One of the most special features is the open invitation made to native Gaelic speakers in the surrounding communities, from which we learn so much. We also encourage learning for all ages and have special classes dedicated for youth, so parents, be sure to bring your children along as well! Learning meets community, meets music and dance, meets storytelling, and equals fun!
Gaidhlig as t-Earrach ~ Spring Gaelic Weekend for Adults ~ May 5-7, 2017
The first immersion weekend of the year welcomes the return of warmer temperatures, and old and new friends alike. During this session, we'll do all things spring, like maybe learn how to garden in Gaelic, get outside for a hike... and of course have songs and tunes!
Oidhche Shamhna Gàidhealach ~ Halloween Gaelic Weekend (all ages) ~ September 30-October 2, 2016
This weekend will blend spooky fun and traditional Gaelic Halloween practices, with time set aside just for ghost stories, old-fashioned fuarag, and a masquerade square-dance!
An Nollaig Gàidhealach ~ Christmas at the Gaelic College (all ages) ~ November 25-27, 2016
