Why Gaelic? Quite simply, two languages are better than one. *Research has shown that, on average, people with two languages possess better cognitive and language skills than those who have only one language. There are huge cultural and social advantages - with two languages, you gain the perspective of the two languages. You gain the breadth of understanding and the outlooks of two cultures. With two languages, it is usually easier for you to learn other languages. If you have been immersed in two languages from a young age, research demonstrates that you will be better at multi-tasking than those who have been exposed to only one language. There is also the advantage of improved job prospects. In Scotland there are a number of different Gaelic careers you can undertake or opportunities for you to use Gaelic in your work. From teaching to crofting, Gaelic is both a language of work and a language that can work for you.
