Item Description...
THE BOOK Everyday Gaelic has been compiled by an author with many years' experience in teaching the language to adults and children. In addition to basic words and phrases, it also includes more complex and idiomatic material, all arranged thematically and covering topics such as meeting and greeting, travelling, the weather and eating and drinking. There are also clearly explained sections on grammar and imitated pronunciation for all Gaelic words and phrases. The result is an accessible and useful book which will be of benefit to all levels and ages of Gaelic learners. Everyday Gaelic was originally published by Gairm.THE CD Designed to be used with or without the accompaniment of the Everyday Gaelic book, this 80-minute-long CD features Gaelic phrases spoken by native speakers and arranged by topic. Each phrase is preceded by its English translation and followed by a pause to allow the learner to repeat the phrase. Helpful for both comprehension and pronunciation, this CD is particularly useful for learners without access to a native speaker.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great little book - be sure to get the version with audio CD  Feb 20, 2008
This is definitely a worthwhile purchase for anyone interested in Scottish Gaelic. But one should be aware that there are two versions of this book in print - one with and one without the accompanying audio CD. According to this site's description and the photo of the book, the version they are selling does not include the CD, but the retail price and ISBN that they list for this title are for the one with the CD. So someone looking for this book might be hesistant in buying it from this site, because you might be paying for the book/CD version and only getting the book. None of the other customer reviews mention an audio CD or whether they actually ordered this title from this site specifically, so that is not helpful is determining which version this site actually stocks.

If you are looking from the book/CD version online (sorry, I won't name where to look here, but there are other retail sites that carrying both versions, so shop around - or pester this site to sort out this confusion), know that the cover of the book should have a yellow banner in the bottom corner reading "Includes Audio CD." It should also have an ISBN ending in 709 (the book-only version ends with 402, and is about $10 less retail). As a student of Scottish Gaelic, I highly recommend getting the book/CD version. Even with phonetic help, Gaelic learners benefit greatly from hearing the pronounciation and cadance of a native Gaelic speaker, as spoken Gaelic is quite distinct from spoken English or other non-Celtic languages.
More than a useful phrase book  Aug 21, 2001
This little book is very useful for a broad range of everyday conversational situations. It is most appropriate for travelers in Gaelic-speaking areas. The topical organization is great; particular situations are easy to find quickly. The phonetic pronunciation guides, with each phrase, are reasonably accurate and provide at least a good start toward accurate pronunciation of the Gaelic words and phrases - even showing how syllables and sounds are run together in phrases. Light in spirit, serious in intent. A "must-have" for any Gaelic learner who wants to use Gaelic in everyday situations.
Fun Phrase Book!!!  Jun 8, 1999
This is a great addition to any regular Scottish-Gaelic course. Lot's of fun phrases in an easy to reference manner. It's a great book
An indespensible guide to conversational idioms  Jun 2, 1999
This very conveniently organized, compact and user-friendly book should be a staple on every Gaelic learner's bookshelf. It not only provides an excellent vocabulary of idiomatic phrases, but does so with the pithy wit that Scottish Gaels are so famous for.

Phrases are pressented in idiomatic English, idiomatic Gaelic and phonetic transcription side by side. The phonetics are fairly intuitive and easy to use. Basic gramar points are also covered, but as sidebars to the main focus, which is conversation.

This book truly fills an essential function in the progression from beginning to intermediate skill in Gaelic.
