Did You Know?

Scottish Gaelic is not an official language of the UK or EU, despite it being potentially older than English and spoken by around 57,000 people in Scotland.

In the middle ages, Scottish and Irish communities were taught Classical Gaelic. Resultantly, Scots language speakers dubbed Scottish Gaelic ‘Erse’ (the Scots word for Irish). The linguistic split between Scottish and Irish Gaelic only occurred after Classical Gaelic stopped being taught in schools.
