Going to post random stuff here :)
For anyone interested, Gallego is the language of Galicia. It's closer to Portuguese, even though the region is in Spain. (https://www.omniglot.com/writing/galician.htm)
There is a Galician nationalist newspaper published in Gallego: El Correo Gallego. (http://www.elcorreogallego.es)
For anyone interested in learning Spanish, Duolingo is a great primary.
If you are interested in intermediate or learning by immersion, you might want to look into reading some essays by Juan Donoso Cortez; Spanish author, conservative and Catholic political theorist, and diplomat.
Counter-currents posted an article about him (https://www.counter-currents.com/2010/12/juan-donoso-cortes/)
For learning purposes, here is the complete text of "Essays on Catholicism, Liberalism and Socialism" in Spanish.
@everyone Rosetta Stone is charging $7.49 for a 24 month subscription. Great deal! (https://www.rosettastone.com/lp/sbsr/febpause749/?cid=af-cj-gr-febpause749bof&utm_source=commissionjunction&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_content=febpause&utm_campaign=textlink)
Is Rosetta Stone any good though?
That’s incredible! I’ve only used pimsleur. Have you had success with RS?
Rosetta Stone is fantastic! My dad has the German program and LOVES it!
But can he speak/hear
If you're not looking to spend any money, duolingo is also a fantastic program
Is it like pimsleur where you can just listen to a lesson on the way to work?
@Olivia M I'm not sure about that. He has it for a desktop. Great question though. 😃
Duolingo is good.
I enjoyed Duolingo it worked reasonably well for what it was.
my sister is a langage teacher and she's recommended Duolingo
I've also been learning Gaelic simply by memorizing songs and poems, but it doesn't necessarily work well for conversing
I taught myself Dutch using duolingo. Excellent app if you're on a budget.
@SamanthaM Mostly because I'm fascinated by the way the language is used in their folk/trad music. A few years ago I started to immerse myself in Irish & Scottish history, and that's actually what initially caused me to take an interest in ethno-nationalism.
@Aleis⊕ccidentalis This is seriously awesome! It would be great if you could post more stuff like this in our new music channel 😃
I do use Duolingo, but it will absolutely *not* teach you the entire language
Don't get me wrong, I would totally recommend it, but you also need other resources
@SuperTomPerry -RI It's difficult, I think, because it's not very similar to other Indo-European languages. Personally, I doubt Gaelic will ever be revived as a national language, but it will survive through music, poetry, lore, etc. It certainly is beautiful.
Thomas Jefferson studied Gaelic
He never achieved much proficiency with it, however
that's super interesting...I wonder why he had an interest in Gaelic?
He's probably my favorite U.S. president, now I've got another reason to like him
Oh yeah he was by far the most multi-lingual President we’ve ever had
He could speak English, Latin, French, and Italian
He could read Spanish and Greek
And he dabbled in Gaelic, Welsh, and Arabic
I'm looking into it now...apparently he was inspired by the novel "Ossian" by James McPherson, which is based on ancient Irish and Scottish lore
Ossian was also a favorite book of Napolean and many other notable figures...it's one I've been meaning to read for awhile
Giving these away. Anyone interested?
