Spòrs Gàidhlig is fully bilingual and able to deliver in Gaelic or English. Spörs Gàidhlig is an outdoor activities and educational programme provider dedicated to providing opoortunities for young people to engage with and use Gaelic. We are fully bilingual and experienced in working with schools and youth groups. We can tailor your experience to your needs.
Our aim is to support and develop young people with Gaelic and introduce those new to the language.
Schools with no Gaelic – the majority of schools do not offer Gaelic as a subject or a medium through which to learn. We can offer activities and programmes which introduce the language to the total beginner. Before you come, we can help you introduce the language through our dedicated educational resources. Introducing Gaelic works well with topics such as Scottish history, geography, languages, landscape and land use, place-names and geology. An example might be the use of Mapland Scotland which not only introduces the language but also provides many other opportunities for learning.
Gaelic learners – We can help support your learners by offering our activities at a level appropriate to learners of Gaelic. Our activities and programmes can be tailored to meet the needs of primary and secondary learning.
Gaelic speakers – We can offer all of our activities through the medium of Gaelic. We are expereinced in working with schools where Gaelic is used as the main language including primary and secondary education.
We will tailor our language use to your needs. You might be doing Go Gaelic or GLPS as part of 1+2 or using another methods. Those new to the language can be introduced in a supportive and fun environment.
