'S toil leam Obar Dheathain. Tha mi a' fuireach ann an flat beag an-drasta. Anns an flat tha coig seomaraichean-cadail, coig seomariachean-ionnlaid, agus cidsin. Tha an rumaichean gle bheag. Anns an rum mo tha leabhaigh, bord, agus seomar-ionnlaid. Chan eil amar agam. Tha fraisair agam.

Good Morning! My name is Erin MacGregor (note: this is a false last name). I am a student at the University in Aberdeen. I am staying at King Street Exchange. I am not from Scotland. I am from America. I like Aberdeen. I am living in a small flat at the moment. In the flat there are five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a kitchen. The rooms are very small. In my room there is a bed, a desk, and a bathroom. I don't have a bath. I have a shower.

I am studying Gaelic, English, and Celtic at the University. I prefer Gaelic. I speak a little Gaelic.

I have two brothers, Greg and Elliot, and a sister, Marlyn. I have three dogs, three cats, and a fish in America. Arwen is a Golden Retriever. Rosie is a Labradoodle. Rocco is a Yellow Lab and a Guide Dog Puppy in Training. Mia, Slyvester, and Lucy are Tuxedo Cats. Cunningham is a Beta.

This was all that I could think of the say at the moment, but I thought you guys would like to see how I was doing with my Gaelic. I really do enjoy the language. In high school I was forced to take Latin, which was fun but I wasn't passionate about it. Then they didn't offer the language I really wanted to take so I took Spanish. Since I really got to choose this language I'm having so much fun learning it. :)
