Gaelic............... Does anyone actually speak it? I mean really..?22 Jun 2005, 06:10 Anonymous
Head up to the northern parts of Scotland (the most remote and not coincidentally the most beautiful parts of the UK), and you'll see that many of the signs are in Gaelic. TV programs up there are also in Gaelic. As for anyone only speaking Gaelic and nothing else, I don't know. But surely these languages should be encouraged to live???Anonymous 24 Jun 2005, 09:18 - Report
As a foriegner, you need to know that you wont find peopel in Scotland who wont speak to you in English. Dont worry.
I think its' great people want to preserve thier culture, but it is also importnat to be able to speak to people!Anonymous 27 Jun 2005, 05:27 - Report
I think it is vital that minority languages should be preserved. Language gives insights into culture. Anyone who has studied a second language will know that many words simply don't translate. The fewer languages in the world, the poorer the human race will be.Anonymous 06 Jul 2005, 08:34 - Report
