In the very first topic of A1 of SpeakGaelic, we learnt a few European countries. In this section we will go further afield.

In the very first topic of A1 of SpeakGaelic, we learnt a simple way to say where you are from – Tha mi à. When we give personal information in Gaelic we often emphasise some of that information by bringing it to the front of the sentence, using as ’S e or a ’S ann structure. We will now look at this more natural way of saying where you are from:
This gives us a new way of answering the question Cò às a tha thu?
Cò às a tha thu?
Where are you from?
’S ann à Alba a tha mi. Tha mi à Glaschu.
I am from Scotland. (‘It’s from Scotland that I am.’) I’m from Glasgow.
