Spring Scottish Gaelic Classes Planned for New York

Screen Shot 2020-02-15 at 11.15.30 AMThe New York Caledonian Club, the heart of the Big Apple’s Gaelic Learning Community, is offering beginning and intermediate Scottish Gaelic classes this spring, and enrollment is open now.

The classes, which begin Feb. 25 and will run through May 5, will be held at the Ripley-Grier Studios in Midtown Manhattan, at 520 8th Avenue (between 36th and 37th Streets).

The beginner’s class (Scottish Gaelic 101) will be taught by John Grimaldi, and will use “Seallagain” — a free course by Catrìona NicIomhair Parsons available online — as its textbook. The intermediate class, Reading Scottish Gaelic, will be led by Don Ross, and will explore Gaelic literature. Both classes will be held on Tuesday evenings, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Tuition for both classes is $125 for NYCC members and $150 for the general public.
