NEWS RELEASE

 

New Gaelic For Parents & Babies Course

 

CNSA, are pleased to announce that they are setting up two new Gaelic For Parents & Babies Courses, in the Glasgow area.

The client group will largely be made up of expectant parents, those considering parenthood, pre-school staff, grandparents and parents of children from birth to 3 years of age. 

 

Every day we see the evidence growing stronger, that if we are serious in wanting to see the vast majority of children speaking Gaelic fluently by the age of three years, parents must begin the learning process from day one.

 

Moreover, it is now generally accepted as a fact that the earlier Gaelic is introduced into a child's life, the more chance of ending up with a long term fluent Gaelic speaker. Ideally we want Gaelic to be a child's first language, this will naturally, require the parent(s), in the first instance, to be fluent in the language; hence the two new courses.

 

Notwithstanding, the objective of both courses is the same and that being to help both learner and fluent Gaelic speakers, enhance the language used with very young children.

However, in regard to the fluent Gaelic speaking parents, it may be, that they just lack confidence in using the appropriate language with their child(ren). In which case, we have well tried strategies that deal very effectively with precisely this situation.

 

The language used on these courses will embrace such tasks as feeding, nappy changing, dressing the child at night and for the day, meal times, washing, plus the language of affection etc.

 

Accordingly, we are seeking fluent Gaelic speakers to become helpers for these exciting new language courses; a reasonable knowledge apropos the language applicable to this age group, would also be a great asset to anyone thinking of helping.

 

Highly practical training will be given in the extremely effective Total Immersion Plus methodology which is a really user-friendly way for parents to acquire a Gaelic fluency.

 

 

 

If you are interested in either joining a course as a student, tutor or as

a helper, then please contact CNSA on (…01542-836322 or Catherine on (…0141-226-5222, one can also email fin...@cnsa.org.uk and sooner rather than later. For those reading and living outside the Glasgow area, we would be most grateful if you would pass on this information to the Glasgow friend, relative etc.

 

In conclusion, if you are an expectant parent, considering parenthood or parent with a child found within the above age group, why not start 2009 off with a bang, by taking up one of our new and innovative courses, you never know, you may enjoy it!
