Words of Praise

4 May

It’s now just over 3 months until the Monster starts school and I think it’s time to learn some words of praise for him in Gaelic.  It seems a bit nonsensical to tell him he’s done something well in Gaelic and then praise him in English when it’s not that hard to learn some new phrases.  I can use:

  •  ceart gu leòr! – right enough/all right/ok!
  • ‘s math a rinn thu! – well done!

but I’d love to expand my repertoire, which is where I’m hoping you will come in…

If you know any good (simple!) phrases to use with young children I’d love it if you could share them with me.  Just make sure you tell me how to pronounce it!

Thanks in advance…
