I heard again from SMO – their regular track for the Gaelic programme is now taking registration. However, since they caught me flat-footed with finances and overcommitment to other things, I’m going to have to go for the February intake. Here’s the info:

“We are now taking registrations for our beginners course in Scottish Gàidhlig, An Cùrsa Inntrigidh, designed to take you to a reasonable level of fluency and provide reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Please consult timetables on the SMO website www.inntrig.smo.uhi.ac.uk and ensure that this coming intake is suitable for you. If it’s not, you may wish to register for our February 2012 intake.”

So, February it is. At least I know in advance, so my goal is to clear out more stuff and then get started in Feb. My friends that are planning on taking this course too would probably have more time then.
