Learning Outcomes
The course aims (1) to extend students' experience in and understanding of Scottish Gaelic literature of the last three centuries, and to develop a general familiarity with the culture and literature of the Scottish Highlands and Islands, through reading and discussion of Gaelic prose and verse texts, thus introducing students at first-hand to the works of some of the most important Gaelic poets, and to a wide variety of Gaelic prose styles; and (2) to increase familiarity with, and powers of expression in, Scottish Gaelic by means of regular language work, thus leading students towards a sound competence in speaking, reading and writing Scottish Gaelic.
