I absolutely love this program. You're given two different speech variations on the language. One spoke by a man, another by a woman.

The way that they go about showing you a picture and the spelling of the world, plus the actual pronunciation is easy to follow.

Now you need to actually do a lesson at least every day to pick up the language. But that's with any program where you're learning a new language.

It's fun to use. Exciting as you pick up new Gaelic words.

I would reccomend this to anyone.

EuroTalk's Talk Now - Scots Gaelic is an outstanding first tool for learning this poetic and musical language. The lessons are easily understood and simple to follow; learning taking place almost immediately. The talk & listen (to your own voice) feature is especially valuable. Highly recommended for beginners, but a good practice tool for intermediate learners as well. An excellent value also.

Other than a goofy urge to giggle like a 3-year-old while repeating the words back at my computer, I have no complaints about this product. It should be noted, though, that if you are running Vista, you may get an error message about floating point errors. You will need a software upgrade to fix it but it is provided free at [...].

You will not learn how to speak Scots Gaelic with this product, but you will improve comprehension, and possibly correct pronunciation, of some fundamental words and phrases, including colors, foods, numbers, telling time etc. Used in conjunction with other drill and repetition-based language approaches, it can be very helpful, and engaging. My son really enjoys playing the games, and it is apparent he is beginning to internalize many of the terms. Of the three Eurotalk products available for Scots Gaelic, this one in my opinion is the best value.

I am not as happy with this as I thought I'd be. Firstly the CD had to be downloaded and you must insert the CD every time you want to use the program. So it's not very convenient. I also can't figure out how to use it on my mobile or my tablet although it is advertised as being ok for mobile. As for the lessons themselves, I am not impressed with the mateial covered as most of it is for visitors or travelers and not for day to day conversation. Also there is no help with reading the words and knowing how to pronouce each syllable. There are two examples given for each word and many times they don't even sound the same! I have had to make the program pronounce each word multple times to try to get the sound right and still don't understand most of them. Also the speakers go very fast and I cannot follow them. Overall there are much better resources for Scots Gaelic on the internet that are free than this program. I say don't waste your money.

This "EuroTalk Interactive - Talk Now! Learn Scots Gaelic" is well suited for use on a home personal computer, laptop or even an iPod. The menu tools are obvious to use, and the format provides a decent offering of basic words, word games, and oppotunities to practice Scots Gaelic. The format is interactive in the sense of keeping score on quizzes and on comparing your prounciation with that offered on the disk.

This reviewer found Scots Gaelic to be a tough language to pick up from a cold start. Gaelic prounciation seems different from any of the standard latin or germanic-based European languages, and the models on the disk seemed to this reviewer to talk fairly fast. It may be that this teaching program is more effective for those with some prior exposure to Gaelic. Highly recommended for practice for those who already have some familarity with Gaelic.
