Ùlpan is a fast and effective way to learn Gaelic which has been used to great effect in Israel to teach Hebrew and in Wales to teach Welsh, where Wlpan has brought thousands of adult learners to fluency. Speaking comes first, and reading and writing follow a little later. You learn through repetition of key structures and through language activities, with a strong emphasis on speaking the language.
Fees: all tasters are £10.00. Course G240B, £230.00 Students who have already studied Ùlpan qualify automatically for a £50 discount which will cover units 1-72. More information at: www.ulpan.co.uk/u/ and http://www.gla.ac.uk/courses/openstudies/
