Gaelic Lesson with Suzanne Beaton


Gaelic:  Là Fhéill Eòin a’ Bhaistich

English: Lit. “Day festival John (Ian) the Baptist”

Sounds like: “LAW, ALE,  eeYAWN un VAH-steehk”

A review of last week’s lesson on how to fire someone, Trump-style.

English:            You’re fired! 

Part 1:

Gaelic:              Thoir do chasan leat!  

English lit. take your legs with you, which is a general Gaelic command to leave/scram.

 Part 2

Gaelic               Thoir do chasan leat! Chan eil thu ag obair an seo tuilleadh!

English              Take your legs with you! You don’t work here no more!.   

Sounds like:

“hoar dough k’HA-sin lat.     K’han YELL ooh egg OH-per an shaw TOO-leich” (sounds like “lake” but without the “ache” sound at the end.)
