This programme will develop and widen your oral and listening skills in Gaelic and you will have the opportunity to be taught in Gaelic. SCOTTISH LITERATURE: - Scottish literature is the study of the poetry, drama, fiction and prose of Scotland, in English and Scots, from its beginnings in the 14th century to the most contemporary work.
