Learn to say what hobbies you like in Gaelic with Joy.
Dè as toil leat?
What do you like?
Let’s meet the structure.
We know from previous lessons this opens more structures for our questions and answers. We can now ask if people like specific sports, hobbies and interests.
You might want to talk about what people like and what they dislike! As with many things in Gaelic, it’s a case of getting to grips with the correct prepositional pronoun. Check out the ones made from le (with).
|leam||with me||leamsa||with me|
|leat||with you||leatsa||with you|
|leis||with him / it||leis-san||with him / it|
|leatha||with her / it||leathase||with her / it|
|leinn||with us||leinne||with us|
|leibh||with you||leibhse||with you|
|leotha||with them||leothasan||with them|
This gives us a whole range of questions we can use to discuss people’s likes and dislikes.
