Càit an deach sibh air na làithean-saora an-uiridh? Where did you go on your holidays last year?

Ciamar a chaidh sibh ann? How did you go there?
Chaidh mi a Nice air itealan, chaidh mi gu Pàras anns a’ char agus air an trèan, agus chaidh mi a Côte d’Azur air a’ bhàta. I went to Nice on a plane, I went to Paris in the car and on the train, and I went to the Côte d’Azur on the boat.
Carson a chaidh sibh ann? Why did you go there?
Dhan Fraing? Is toil leam an Fhraing. Is toil leam am biadh, is toil leam an cultar, is toil leam ealain agus is toil leam a’ ghrian! To France? I like France. I like the food, I like the culture, I like art and I like the sun!

Chaidh mi dhan taigh-tasgaidh Matisse ann an Nice agus bha mi a’ gabhail fois ann an Côte d’Azur. I did a lot. I went to the Louvre museum in Paris and other museums and I saw lots of interesting things. I went to the Matisse Museum in Nice and I was resting in Côte d’Azur.
Dè chunnaic sibh? What did you see?
Chunnaic mi seallaidhean àlainn agus dealbhan brèagha. I saw lovely views and beautiful pictures.

Dh’ith mi biadh Frangach: càise, aran, feòil is maorach. I ate French food: cheese, bread, meat and shellfish.
