Raising Gaelic voices

With spoken Gaelic progressively in decline, we are exploring methods to increase its use. Based on our research, we have created a social space (the Taigh Ceilidh) to encourage users to speak Gaelic (as our findings show that people are more inclined to use the language when others do), make new connections with other Gaelic speakers and contribute their voices to the Gaelic social linguistic soundscape of the wider community.
