10 Reasons to Visit Scotland This Year

How would you pronounce Slàinte Mhath! I never would have guessed that. Good health!!

I love how the Gaelic coach says Gaelic as GAA-lic, not GAY-lic. I'm saying it like that from now on.

Slàinte Mhath
I feel like there should be a J in the first word and the last word should end "vah"

This comment was funny: I've come to the conclusion that Scots don't know phonics.

This cracked me up! Squirrel: Germans have a tough time pronouncing that word, though English speakers have a hard time too.

I'm going to have any Germans from now on say SQUIRREL. I certainly can't say Eichhörnchen correctly without saying it ten times in a row first.

What and what now?!!!

I don't think I'd be very good at Gaelic. Or any other language aside from English.

Spanish and English are all I will ever be fluent in.

To go with the thread title:

J.K. Rowling calls Scottish independence efforts 'Death Eaterish'

Scottish charity calls JK Rowling a 'bitch'

How is squirrel difficult to pronounce?

romance languages might be easy b/c they flow off the tongue.

If I was famous I wouldn't want to comment on anything b/c the hate I'd get would be too much.

I can mimic other languages and make them sound OK, but I can't remember vocabulary or translate that quickly, so basically, languages aren't my thing.

I'm quite the mimic, too. I start adapting the tones and rhythms of foreigners if I talk to them long enough. I listen to quite a bit of songs in Italian, so I may not be able to speak Italian, but I'll sing my way around Italy if I ever vacation there.
