LEARNING Scottish Gaelic could now be accessible to millions of people across the globe through an online course set to be released on a language learning app.
Duolingo has announced that the language will be launched on Saturday, to mark St Andrew’s Day, more than six months ahead of schedule.
Some 20,000 people have already signed up to learn Scottish Gaelic following an online campaign.
The language, which has about 60,000 speakers across Scotland, will now be available to 300 million users of the app, which offers another 90 courses.
Duolingo says those taking part can learn by spending just five minutes per day on the course.
Its Irish and Welsh courses already have more than five million learners between them, while other indigenious tongues, including Navajo and Hawaiian, were added last year.
