A new generation of native language speakers are learning the basics thanks to Gaelic Bookbug sessions for families across Fife.
Mums and babies attending an event in the Rothes Halls library in Glenrothes were joined by Fife Council’s community and housing services committee convener Judy Hamilton to mark the launch of a consultation on a new Gaelic language plan for the kingdom.
The plan outlines what Fife Council, working with the Gaelic community, will do over the next five years to promote the language, making it accessible to anyone who wants to learn.
It is estimated that there are now about 3,000 users across Fife, meaning that about 5% of all Gaelic users in Scotland live here.
Councillor Hamilton is encouraging anyone who might be interested in learning another language to consider giving Gaelic a go and having their say on the new Gaelic plan.
