Young­sters tune in to new Gaelic song app

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

A NEW app has been launched to help young­sters learn Gaelic songs.

‘Òrain na Cloinne Bige’ is free to down­load and fea­tures 20 songs for early years, all recorded by five tal­ented young singers from the Western Isles.

The project is a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Pròiseact nan Ealan and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar to aid the Gaelic learn­ing process while hold­ing the at­ten­tion of chil­dren.

Erica Mor­ri­son, cre­ative di­rec­tor at Pròiseact nan Ealan, said: ‘ We are de­lighted to have worked in part­ner­ship with Comhairle nan Eilean Siar to pro­duce this won­der­ful Gaelic app which can be en­joyed by flu­ent and learner Gaelic speak­ers. This re­source will en­rich the Gaelic ex­pe­ri­ence for young peo­ple, es­pe­cially as it is not con­fined to the class­room.

‘Em­brac­ing mod­ern com­mu­ni­ca­tion meth­ods is es­sen­tial to en­sure Gaelic is used in ev­ery­day life.’

Lit­tle James Earl MacLeod en­joys the

new Gaelic mu­sic app.
